What am I missing here? I can't figure out what I'll lose or gain.

I currently have Digital Home Advantage AEP with locals $99.98, dishHD Ultimate $20.00, Leased Receiver Fee $7.00, Addl Receiver Fee $5.00, DHPP $5.99 for a total of $137.97. I have what I understand counts as 5 receivers 2-622's & a 311.

The HD Absolute is $29.99 and says it includes AT250, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, & Starz.

What am I missing here? It seems I can pay approx $90/mo less and receive the same.

Will both plans include the new channels on 08/01?

I come up with 99.94 for what you say you have. You also have 2 DVR fees, DHHP, a 7 dollar leased fee, 5 dollar leased fee, and 40 dollars for the premiums.

for the 29.99 you get 1 receiver fee included and all HD channels (minus RSNs and Premiums)

you would have to pay for 2 DVR fees(10), locals(5), 2 receiver fees (14), DHPP(6), Premiums (40, 31 if you do paperless and autopay), you would not get RSNs or any SD channels that do not have HD channels as well.. So your 29.99 just turned into 104.99 (95.99 with paperless and auto pay)

I forgot locals. So you are right at 104.99.

The $137.97 came straight off my bill so am I getting screwed with my current billing?
