    I have CHOICE XTRA™ + HD DVR. It's looks like this package cost($79.99) is the same price as the Choice xtra + dvr + HD. In other words I'm not getting a savings in this grandfathered package?

    Is that correct?

    Choice Xtra $63.99
    DVR $7
    HD Access $10

    You're saving the $1 you always did.

    Thanks, my bad. I forgot about the dvr price going up. I knew I was missing $1 somewhere.:)

    The crappy part about this I can't change services online anymore.:(

    So the package I got just a few short months ago (same one as OP) is a grandfathered package now?

    Damn.

    What kind of services can you no longer change online?

    Looks like I can't do much. I tried to add HBO and got a message saying I'd have to change my package...

    You can pay $1 more if you want and then be able to change your programming online.
