After doing some research into this, here is what I've found regarding the recent channel change.
Cost to increase to Digital Preferred -$9.99
Sports Package - $9.95
Digital Box - $10.00 a piece
Digital Converter (small black box) - $2.99 a piece
You are only offering a 1 month promo to exsisting customers that require an upgrade and after that they are on the hook for the additional cost of the Digital Preferred plus the sports package for any channels that are now only available in that line up (CMT) and on top of that an upgrade in equipment is required to the more expensive box since the channels have also been removed from the converters even if a customer already has the Digital Preferred tier or upgrades to that.
Why the need to remove them from the converter boxes? They are fully capable and compatible with the channels. Besides, it used to be that 2 per house hold were included free of cost. Also there is nothing in writing stating the fact an upgrade in equipment is required. Had to find out myself last night when I turned the t.v. on and in the original post of this forum. Someone from corporate please contact me so we can discuss this because these "changes" are not ethical by any means.
