    Just before the package changes there were some suggesting last minute changes from Total Choice Plus to Choice Extra. I didn't do it and it looks like it was a wise move.

    Would not have made any difference if you had. They both got renamed to Choice Extra Classic at the same price.

    I moved from Ultimate to Choice Xtra before the increase so I could get locked into the grandfathered package and save a little money to offset the increase.

    I think some people moved upgraded from Total Choice to Xtra to get Classic.

    So 2012 costs are projected to increase less than 2011, but our increase is higher.

    I went to down to Choice to offset the increases. I'll do without a few stations.
    Weird, every time I start seriously thinking about switching to HD DTV, they raise rates and I get upset and stick to my old R15, crummy picture, but I'll live with it.

    I stil have several months left on my 2 year sign up I have the premier pkg. my bill went up $5. Called and told them my prices were still locked in. They said they could not change the price increase. So she offered $10 off for 6 months. I took it. Will call back in 6 months

    Did they do a two year price guarantee then? I k ow they did one recently, but thought it was the first time they had that promotion.

    The first 3 months were dirt cheap. Then went up about $20. I can not remember all the steps. But I know the first 14 months had discounted prices. Then the last 10 months had the full price.
