Selecting my own preferred channels - DirecTV

I hate it that you have continuously increased my bill month after month. I hate it that I had to get the more expensive package to get some of the very few channels I actually watch.

How about you give me the smallest number of channels but permit me to select the ones I want. 90% of your channels are worthless to me. I guess I should be looking at the other providers.

This question, "Selecting my own preferred channels," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
