HBO $17.99

Showtime or Cinemax or Starz or Sports Pack $13.99


HBO with 1 of the others (2 pack) is $30.98 so slightly cheaper than individual cost. A 3 pack (with HBO) should be just over $40 with the built-in savings. Log into your account online or call DirecTV to be sure. And there might be a discount or 2 for1 special for 3 months if you are lucky. Interestingly if you get a free special for 3 months, it credits the full value for that time regardless of how much built-in discount you get from a multi-pack.


Just remember any discount/free special you get goes to full cost after the promo. It doesn't remove the channel proactively.
