Can I upgrade to a higher package online for 1 day only and then drop the package the next day without penalty? I would like to watch something tonight on FS2 but I have no interest in keeping it.
You can only do that with add-on packages in Flex Pack. With the AT's, you will be charged a penalty for any changes in less than thirty days.

Yea $5 for regular programming, or $10 for adult.

They will usually waive the fee if it's been a while, but the fee is there to prevent people upgrading for a day just for 1 program.

The reason It's $10 for adult because people would get the porn channels for the entire weekend and just pay a few dollars for the pro-rated charges.

Flex allows you to switch/add/drop packs without the fee.
Not all packs, Just add on packs.
You still can't remove, Starz, Encore, Epix, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, The Movie Pack all adult packs, and even the Latino pack reported a fee within 30 days of adding.

Also Multisports pack last I checked wasn't even an option, so I'm not sure what "Sports" pack besides Regional sports pack, Or National Action pack thats even available.

Flex had a lot of limitations, I suggest you research the the list of channel availability.
Imo the $40 sling orange +blue has a better offering
As well as PS Vue.

Yep even if its an Upgrade.
You would have to call and complain about that fee going from Top 200- 250
Otherwise, online will charge you $5.30 , at least in my case.

I've never been charged for an upgrade within 30 days even though it appears they could.
Changing your Basepackage within 30 days costs $5.



You don't believe me, Try it and let me know how that works out for ya.

Then you'd be guessing wrong.
Here you could just as easily go online and back up your claim, but until then here you go.

I have Top250 and now I'm going to upgrade to AEP.

And I might add, Thats $5 per item, not just $5.

$15.90 because Top250, Showtime and Starz were changed within 30 days, Plus tax.
