Thank Google, for caching their search results.:wink Tells me somebody from Directv had posted it by mistake and then took it down. At least it's a good start to determining what the price changes will be.

If that is right, overall very similar to Dish. Dish raised their Smart Pack $2.00, Directv has $2.00 for their family pack. $4.00-$5.00 for the packs similar to AT120, AT200, AT250. Dish raised their everything pack $5.00 + they added $2 last month for a total of $7 over the course of the year. Directv's top package is increasing $7.00 I am not a Directv sub, but as I look at that image, are the bottom rows of the standard packages right? Is Extra, Ultimate, and Premier all normally $129.99? I thought only their top package was that expensive.

Xtra and Ultimate are currently $73.99 and 81.99 respectively. If it's still a $7 increase, well, I think we're smart enough to do the math.

Looks like they raised the Recvr fee as well by .50 ... was thinking they were done with that.

So my bill goes up a buck and a half automatically, BEFORE the Programming jump of 5-7 buck.

Typically D*'s prices go up a buck or two, this year its 5-7 ... ridiculous.

OK, so considering the regular price for ENTERTAINMENT is currently $57.99 and NOT $73.99, I see where Directv goofed. These will probably be the right increases:

Entertainment: $57.99 - $2 increase to $59.99
Choice: $66.99 - $4 increase to $70.99
Xtra: $73.99 - $4 increase to $77.99
Ultimate: $81.99 - $5 increase to $86.99
Premier: $129.99 - $7 increase to $136.99

Family and Select would remain unknown as this time.

if it is going up that much I will probably go ahead and switch a couple TVs over to ROKU units and drop at least my 2 Genie minis. Sorry but I am tired of paying well over 100.00 a month for TV.

I agree with the increase next year and the promo running out for me next year , I'll just pay the ETF and leave. I'll go back to Dish or try dreadful Comcast. Love how they stated what they did new this year like they are saying it's cool but here's an increase.

I expewct a small increase every year, but this $ 5-7 seems extreme.
I actually expect $5-7 to be normal. I remember 2 years ago when Dish raised their Everything Package by $15 from $104.99 to $119.99. That's when I switched to Directv. Last year, Directv increased the Premier package by $5 from $124.99 to $129.99 and now they're raising it an additional $7 this year.Honestly, a $7 increase does not surprise me considering how greedy we've seen programmers like Fox, Disney/ESPN, CBS, Comcast/NBC, have all become in the last few years.
