said by Vchat20:That's great Time Warner is so nice... Charter charges $15 for DVR Service (per DVR) plus $5 per set top box. So a DVR costs $20 PER DVR. No discounts for additional DVR's.
Personally, I wanna know where you are getting your $10-$20 a month per box figures from. Quote me some real numbers here if you will.
Here in Time Warner territory a 'DVR' charge is only made once per household. Then it's a generic 'set top' charge per box. Right now in our region it's running about $6.95 for the dvr fee and $7.65 per set-top. While still a bit high, it's certainly not as astronomical as you think. So if we had 3 dvr's, it would be $6.95+$7.65+$7.65+$7.65=$29.90/mo compared to your $6.95+$7.65+$6.95+$7.65+$6.95+$7.65=$43.80/mo
