You'd be best to call and ask, often times a SD DVR is free, an HD DVR is $99, but the website list price is $100 more than that for each.

There is a better package that adds about 15 channels. If you go HD, there is a Plus HD DVR package for $73 that is everything but the premiums.

Best bet is to call and talk to D*.

I have the same package. The newer Choice Extra has one or two fewer channels. You may have to pay for a DVR, it depends on your account history, the phase of the moon and who knows what else. You should be able to add DVR service without changing to one of the newer packages, but you will need to call, not do it on the web site.

I have Total Choice Plus, I upgraded to a HD DVR and did not have to change my programming package.

Keep in mind that was about a year ago.

I've upgraded my Dish, receivers, and HD programming over the last couple of years and have never been told that I have to change my programming package. Although I do everything on the phone and not through the website.

I changed everything a few months ago, never had to change my package.

I just changed to a HD DVR last month; did not have to change my package; and just had to pay a 19.95 processing fee and the 4.99 monthly DVR Service fee.

I was wondering this same thing. Spoke with Verizon about Fios tonight and it got me looking at my DirecTV account. I have total choice plus w/HD pack + lifetime DVR. I saw the new package that seems similar is $11 more than what I pay currently (I know part of that break is because my DVR Discount). Got me thinking if it added any channels, more so added any HD channels for that $11.00.

Does anyone have the new plan w/hd dvr and lifetime dvr discount? Does D* subtract the dvr fee from the $75.99?

I also have never had to change my plan in order to get new equipment or add/subtract premium channels.

Just to avoid any confusion, the dvr fee is $5.99/month. Are you getting a discount?
