As you know, I've had both services too and just recently (2 days ago) switched back to D*, primarily for the NFL ST. I have no big issues with either service because they both have given me what I wanted at the time I wanted it. When I left D* last time, it was because of the HR21 being so slow it was either throw the remote through the window, or cancel the service!
You'll like this... When I called E* to cancel, they were very nice and professional about it. They made the comment that after the 1st year was up, I'd be paying the higher D* sub rates. So after I got off the phone, I figured it up....
D* = Premier + MRV + DVR + (1) lease fee = $131/month
E* = America's Everything + Multi-Sports + DVR + Lease ($10 in this case) = $128/month
A whopping $3/month!!
and thats the mrv fee
