Actually, no. Flawed logic on your part. Look at the new XTRA package they launched and it has something like 7 or 8 channels you still have. That's what they could have taken away from you and charged what they are charging for that new package. Instead, they took one channel from you. Just because you have less channels doesn't mean the rates for everything else doesn't demand they charge more. ESPN raised their prices on them January 1st, did DTV get MORE ESPN? No they didn't. Your coca-cola moniker. When I have to pay more for my coke in a can, am I getting an extra ounce of coke? No I'm not. You cannot equate the number of channels with your price, that is flawed logic because the prices of some other channels may have risen in cost far more than you know.
