for DTV. I just got a bill for $153.24

I have:

Total choice platinum

Locals

NBC east and west

one Tivo

three addtional receivers

FL sales tax


I'm thinking of reducing my bill and sending the savings on dvd's instead.

I got overbilled this month because I changed around my subscription. I was assured that I would get a credit next bill.


EDIT: also, premiums co$t alot of money. You may consider turning off some of your premiums and saving a couple bucks. I don't watch sports so I took off sports. I am deciding which ONE premium to keep and right now it's a close one between HBO and Starz!. I may keep Starz! because of the DD movies and I don't really like series like Sex and the City and mind of the married man anyway.

You sound like a candidate for BEV. You could probably drop your bill by two-thirds. Just no FL locals.


Our FL 13% DBS services tax rate is stupid! Highest in the country, according to D*


I wrote to the state and asked what I was getting for my money, as the state does very little to regulate DBS. Their response was a bunch of B.S. that basically stated it goes to pay for telephone regulation for both residential and business, then other things in a minor way, if I understood correctly. And they seemed quite proud of this recent "major overhaul" of the utilities regulation tax.

I pay about $75/mo, for Total Choice+Locals, Protection Plan, Distant Networks (ABC, CBS, NBC & FOX), and HBO, plus two additonal receivers. I don't remember how it broke down though.


Sure do miss the days I got TCPlatinum for free though (Legally, I might add...)
