I got the same letter today.jfh3 said:Not true. From a snail mail letter received yesterday:
...we are raising the proce of our DIRECTV PARA TODOS base packages by $3/mo.
Now what the hell...they just redid the Para Todos packages in November.
I switched from Opcion Ultra Especial to SELECCIÓN ULTRA at that time to lock in the lower rate of $39.99/month (compared to the listed price of $49.99).
Now I can't figure out what I'll be paying come March 1. $42.99? $52.99? That's more than regular old Total Choice Plus. There's no benefit to having the Para Todos packages over the Total Choice counterpoints anymore.
Maybe that's the whole point. I guess I'll wait and see how my account reads come 3/1/06 and downgrade accordingly.
