If you want SD-only, you usually have to drop down to an SD-only receiver, or they'll usually tack on some kind of "extra" charge to not carry HD using an HD-receiver (forget what the charge is actually called).
At least that's how I understood that they used to do it. Might have changed that, though (I have Dish and I know they used to do that, and I thought Direct did something similar - I think the charge was about 6 or 8 bucks or something like that last time I ever looked).
They might charge you to downgrade your equipment (HD to an SD receiver).
