In my area, TW charges $4.95 - $9.95/mo for DVR service. Seems a small price to pay in order to be able to skip commercials.
Is that $9.95 including the box, though? Here in SoCal we get nailed with both a $9.95 "DVR Fee" plus another charge for the box:08/13 - 09/12 DVR Fee 9.9508/13 - 09/12 DVR Fee 9.9508/13 - 09/12 Digital Video Receiver 4.24 (includes Remote Control At $.23)08/13 - 09/12 Additional Digital Video 6.95 Recorder (includes Remote Control At $.23), And Digital Programming Fee
here in NYC the dvr is also the cable box mine is SA 8300hddvr for 9.95, you may need to check with billing your bill looks like your being charge more than once for the same items
