I agree... the premium channels are all a waste of money. As soon as my free preview runs out on March 15, I'm dumping all the premiums. I got a free 6 months from Directv when I called last year regarding a problem with my local channels. Something about being a good customer... only drawback is I'll have to call them again to remove the premiums and probably get the hard sell to keep them.
