To the OP, if your happy with your new deal, good for you. Everyone has to do whats best for them. And sometimes you have to make providers appreciate your business. Or miss the fact that you left and then bombard you with "Come back" offers. Fortunately, DIRECTV has taken care of me and I'm happy with the service they provide. For instance, I'm still getting the $10/mo HD credit and they gave me an HR34 with WHDVR all for no cost. And I'm sure glad they do take care of me. Although I could go to cable or Dish, they don't have the most important programming I desire. Neither of them have NFL ST or NHL CI with all my teams games in HD. Not to mention, Time Warner doesn't even have NFLN, NHLN or the Red Zone channel. Pretty pathetic and the reason I left them 3+ years ago and never looked back. Although this year, I did sign back up with TWC's internet, because the have the highest speeds in my area. So between both services, I'm probably paying a bit of a premium @ $133/mo (DIRECTV $92, TWC Internet $41). Although its really just $92, because the company I work for reimburses me for my internet, since I work from home when I'm not traveling.
