I know a lot of people tend to bash directv, I have at times myself. But today I called them to check on any specials. I have the Family package and with all my receivers my monthly cost is $74.00. I asked about the choice ultimate package, I use to have an equivalent package before I switched to Family that cost about $114 a month. I was able to get the Ultimate package with hd and Dvr for $84.00 a month tax included. I just wanted to share that because I truly believe that Directv is a customer friendly company and willing to work with people in this down economy. I am and will be a loyal Directv customer.
