    I hope to be signing up for DirectTV in the next couple of days and have a couple questions:
    If I sign up for the current offer with NFL Sunday Ticket with premiere package free for four months and I downgrade to the Plus HD DVR after the four months:
    1. Will I still get $18 month of my plus bill for remaining 8 months?
    2. Will I have to pay anything towards the HD DVR?

    Depending on the answer to above questions, I may just sign up for Plus HD DVR package. I do not watch football, but thought it would be nice to have the premier for four months.

    Also, How much is premier a month after 4 months.

    Thanks, this sight is awesome!!

    Too many variables. I'd call DirecTV and ask them.

    As for:

    1. No. The website states that you get 4 months of their best package for free with the NFLST "or" save $18/month for a year.

    2. I don't know. You would have to call to ask

    Also, Premier is $104.99/month, but don'f forget to add the $5.99 for the DVR service and $9.99 for HD access, bringing the total to $120.97.:)

    If you don't watch football then you need to rethink the whole thing as you will be on auto-renewal of NFLST. Premier is great if you watch enough movies but Plus HD DVR will be close to 50.00 a month cheaper. Also consider the HD extra pack is 5.00 per month and has great HD stuff!

    Make sure you call the specific number for the referral deal or it won't work.

    When I used a referral code last week, I called the regular number and didn't have any issues. I had to call back a couple of days ago when it was installed, and had the lady make sure the referral info was in there, and she checked and said everything looked fine.

    I hope that's the case because I've also read posts where they called the regular number and couldn't do the referral thing. Could be things have changed.

    Plus HD DVR does not include all the regional sports channels, either, but it is a good deal compared with Premier.
