I'm hooked up with the 1 year contract with the Total Choice Premiere I think it's called? It's the one for like 99 bucks and all the channels. I got that along with NFL package paid off in 1 shot. I was wondering if I could downgrade my package w/o breaking the contract and paying a penalty or even re-newing the contract. I got about 6 more months left. I think it's a waste of money for all the the useless channels I never even watch, and also the horrible PQ they provide. After 6 months, I'm out!

You can drop everything down to Family Choice, and still be fullfilling your contract.

Yes you can, but you have to stay in the Total Choice or Selecion Extra packages. Nothing lower than Family in the Total Choice packages.
What do you mean by this? I can go to as low as Family which is like 30 bucks? There's something lower than that even? I didn't see it at their site.

I think the terms used to say you agreed to keep a minimum of Total Choice programming (which is around $45?). That was before the Family Package, so I don't know if you can actually drop to Family ($30 a month) and still be fulfilling that agreement. There is nothing lower than Family, though, that would be within the terms of your agreement. I think the only thing I've seen for less than Family is some foreign language package, which would not be within the terms.

The cheapest programming package you can get is $30 (Seleccion Extra or Family Choice).

Well I guess you can get DirecTV Basic ($9.99) as per the Programming Agreement, but you have to subscribe to an international package which I think will bring you over $30.

PROGRAMMING AGREEMENT. Within 30 days of provision of DIRECTV equipment to you, or on the date that the professional installer has installed or is prepared to install your DIRECTV equipment, whichever is sooner, you agree to activate each and every DIRECTV Receiver ordered by you or provided to you with any DIRECTV® base programming package (valued at $29.99 per mo. or above); or any qualifying international services bundle, which bundle shall include either the DIRECTV® BASIC programming package (valued at $9.99 per mo.) or the DIRECTV PREFERRED CHOICE™ programming package (valued at $29.99 per mo.) together with any WorldDirect™ international-language service. DVR service activation ($5.99/mo.) required for DVR and HD DVR system leases. In certain markets, programming and pricing may vary.
