I was wondering if the D* Premier package includes the HD channels. Does anyone know? Or do I still have to pay the $9.99 fee on top of the $99.99? I know I will get the HD locals as well as HBO and SHO HD but I'm wondering about the others: TNT, HDNET movies, Discovery HD Theater, etc...

I don't think the premier includes the HD package add-on.

Hi Earl, I've read a lot of your posts on here and appreciate all the info you bring to the boards. Since I know you are there, I figured I'd say thanks. Is it just me or is D* slowly turning into Comcast Jr. ? $99 for the "Premier Package" that doesn't include the HD package? I know D* is still far better than Comcrap but they are working their way up...

Nope the only thing the premier package that would hold interest to the new hr20 owners is that the dvr package cost is free. HD package cost an additional $9.99

break down of premier package:
all the channels from tc plus
all the movie channels from hbo, showtime, cinemax, stars/encore & sports package
+ dvr package.. sorry no ppvs of any kind added to this package..
Cost of package.. $99.99 a month

if u don't want all movie channels u can also select by group
1st set of premium channels
1-$12
2-$11
3-$10
4-$8
5-$7
it be tc+ $49.99 to how many sets of channels from there
I hope that helps a little better.

Although the gap has closed some, D* is nowhere near as bad as COMCRAP!
I have the Premier pkg + HD pkg from D*, simalar pkg from Comcrap would be about $20 more a month! Now that's not typical to all areas, but that's the case here! D* often gives credits for thier HD pkg, I've gotten the HD pkg free for six months 2 dif times!

I pay separately for both, but my TIVO fee is waived.
