There's some speculation (and someone posting actual prices...he's only got two posts on the forum, so it's not solid until D* confirms) at SatelliteGuys.us:
Directv is increasing programming prices an average of $3 starting 3/1/06. The good new [sic] however is that the HD Package is going down $1 to $9.99.
Total Choice w/Locals $44.99
Total Choice Plus w/Locals $49.99
Total Choice Premier w/Locals $99.99

Without Local Channels substract $3

Well this is just gonna turn into that one extra straw someone should've held back. To have the nerve to talk about price decreases then to raise base package rates across the board...

I think if this comes to pass I'm gonna be making my first serious complaint call to DirecTV in 11 years and cutting programming down to a minimum package for awhile for the first time ever just to make a point (and test my ability to live with the lesser package :)).
Ditto. This is beginning to tick me off...and I just bought an H20 to receive their HD locals when they become available. Now I understand how they can give you the HD locals without making you subscribe to the HD Package....raise the rate of the base pacakges. :mad:

Well, screw you, D*..I'm getting rid of HBO.

While we're adding up our bills, after March '06 this is how I'll look...

TC+: $49.99
Mirror/Lease: $4.99x2 ($9.98)
DVR: $4.99
HD Package: $0.00 (free for three months, then I'll probably drop it)
HBO: $12.00 (also may drop after the price increase...not sure yet since the Sopranos start in March!)
TOTAL: $76.96

If I keep the HD Package after the three free months: $86.95 (too high!...)

What if I keep HBO, but drop the HD Package: $76.96
(a)What if I drop HBO, but keep HD Package: $73.96
What if I drop HD Package & HBO: $64.96 (niiice...)
What if I keep HD Package & HBO, but drop down to TC: $81.95 (hmm...)
(b)Drop to TC and drop HBO: $69.95
(c)Drop to TC and drop HD package: $71.96
Drop to TC and drop HD & HBO: $59.96

Man...lots to think about...:confused: The three in bold are the most likely...

I have until April 11th to decide on whether to keep.

Package (a) seems to keep me close to my current rate.

Okay, so based on the emails we're getting, the prices are as follows beginning March 1st:

Total Choice: $44.99 ($41.99 w/o locals) [same as previously stated]
Total Choice Plus: $48.99 ($45.99 w/o locals) [down $1 from previously stated]
Total Choice Premier: $96.99 ($93.99 w/o locals) [ down $3 from previously stated]

Interesting...did our emails and calls get to them?? Or were the previously stated figures simply incorrect??
