So I picked up the phone and called customer service. We have been Direct TV customers since 2005 so I thought they'd be able to help me put a less expensive package together, but they did even better. We are keeping our current package with HD and DVR service and they gave me a $20 discount with free DVR service for 12 months! That's $27 a month or $324 saved for a year. Thank you Direct TV!
If you think you are paying too much for a service, give the company a call and ask what they can do to help you save money. You've got nothing to lose.
