Hi everyone.. I want to get a HD reciever for my 610, and am interested in just recieving HD-HBO and HDnet. I have read here and on other forums that you can get a PKG. like "Total Choice HBO" for around $15. I called Directv and they say it's somthing like $60 because you have to have a full Total Choise Pkg. before you can get just HBO. I really don't want the over 100 chanels of %$#^... Just the HD programing. Does anyone know more about this Pkg, who to call, a number or person, and what to ask for????
Thanks for your HELP....
mike

You will not have any luck. I have both DTV and DISH. I wanted to do the same with one or the other just for the HDTV. You have to get the the 100 channel package for either provider before you can get the HD movie channels. $60 sounds right. Besides, if you can afford HD equipment the programming cost should be moot.

It will be interesting to see what happens after the two merge-no sense in carrying duplicate channels and waste bird space.
