    When I first got Directv in 2002, I was the new guy on the block with a great deal on the Premier Package. After a couple of months the new guy learned the ropes and dropped that package because it was cheaper to do a daily package change. Well that was then and Directv changed their SOP. Now everything is money over keep the customer! I want to get that Premier Package again but I'm ignorant about what includes what because I have DVR's leased and owned. One thing that I've learned
    about calling Directv is the variety of answers on any questions. I have learned to trust this forum. I want to upgrade my system. How much would I pay if I had the Premium Package with a R10 and a R15?

    Your equipment is irrelevant. The Premium package INCLUDES the DVR fee, so whatever you connect will not change the rate.

    I can't get to the D* website for some reason ATT, so I can't give you the rate.

    If you haven't done so already, create an online account. Then you can change your programming without having to go through the somewhat clueless CSRs. But, as you remarked, you can no longer change your programming daily. If you do, you'll be charged for the whole month.

    The Premier package doesn't include the DVR fee anymore for new subscribers to that package, but existing premier subs are grandfathered in.

    so that means i would be paying $99 + $5.99 + $5.99 for a total of about $112. That's ridiculous!

    $99.99 + $4.99 (additional receiver) = $104.98.

    I agree. Compare the Cable Providers same package, with the same Channels/Services etc and $112.00 odd Dollars will seem great!

    Called and E-Mailed and got the same tab. $99.99 + $5.99 + $4.99. Total= $110.97 This new Premier Package does NOT include ANY DVR Fees. Go figure.
