    They'd be selling them for $0.16 if that were the case. :D

    My contract is up in August.....if they raise rates yet another $5 (every damn thing is another $5-10), I'll probably cancel and go with the Dish HD only package. I'll miss the ST but it would save me a bundle compared to these pricks.

    My biggest problem is with them being allowed to increase the price to customers under contract. That seems a little unfair to the consumer to me.

    While I understand your point, and don't necessarily disagree, unfortunately their right to do so is explicitly mentioned in the agreement, section 1(d):
    Since the consumer agreed to it at the start, I don't think they can claim it is really unfair.

    Sure they can. We accept all kinds of things in life that are unfair. Doesn't make them any less so. :)

    That I agree with, IMHO they should allow for an out on a contract if the price of the annual increase causes you bill to go up more then X %.

    For those that want to leave, perhaps you can go to Dish, get an increase as well and get some of your locals shut off out of the blue like in over a dozen markets today. ;) :D

    In addition to the rumor being started about price increases....

    ...there is another rumor that DirecTV may "repackage" their channels and/or services somehow in 2009...

    Remember where you heard it first. :D :lol:

    Hopefully it will be a very small increase.

    That makes sense :nono: just dump NFLST and stay with D*, why change providers and get way less programing and HD? Shoot you could even drop ST and get the HD extra pack, pay the increase and be dollars ahead of where you are now, and have a better channel selection than with dishnotwork (misspelling intended).

    I usually agree with you, dodge boy, but not on this. If you are not going to be able to afford all that you want, why not go with the least expensive product that still gives you what you need?
