[HD] HD Complete XF Triple Play

I'm attempting to figure out the details of this Triple Play offer in my area of Delaware - for $189.99/mo + $7/mo for the EMTA:

HD Complete XF Triple Play
Package Details:

AnyRoom® DVR service so you can watch recorded shows in any room you want up to 4 rooms – and in HD. Plus, get stunning HD picture quality included for 3 additional TV.s That’s a total of up to 4 TVs with HD service!

When I click through the order steps on Comcast.com - it says it includes an HD-DVR - but I never get any chance to indicate I also have two additional HD TV's in my home (and obviously would need STB's for those). Based on the text above - are two additional HD boxes included in that $189.99 price??

**And J Jefferson - any dates yet for the final analog reclaim in Northern Delaware? I know "by end of March" - but anything more concrete??**

pretty sure that includes latino programming, as in COMPLETE triple play. I would double check that, there maybe a better package for you.

I actually was just talking with a Comcast rep about this yesterday. The DVR fee's ($16.95) are free, but you have to pay for each additional box @ 7.95 each

Anyroom DVR service ONLY comes with HD boxes. 1 HD DVR hub and 3 HD DCT terminals. Those are included in that price.

if all boxes are part of that price why is the EMTA not??
does it have to do with that you can buy the EMTA?

12 months for that price. 2-year agreement

I don't think this is accurate, not only did I get this information from a Comcast rep their website even states HD Equipment additional charge.

odd the web site wants to add $50.00 per month for all the premium movie channels on page 2

but it seems right as
HD Preferred XF Triple Play + HD DVR + Starz ((Included in the offer you selected.)) + 1 more HD box + sports pack is $160.
But if you remove Starz $150.

Also some offers are listed 2 or more times

LOL-
This is just what I expected to hear - two different stories.

If "Completeyeah" is correct - that's what i was told yesterday. That to have the Anyroom DVR - I'd get 1 HD DVR PLUS the other 2 HD boxes i'd need included in the bundle price.

But then I hear Bryank's post - and that totally contradicts it. If it ends up being $20 more (for the 2 HD boxes) than that doesn't make this deal much more appetizing that FIOS.

Believe me, I wish I was wrong because I wanted the same package and that's why I asked a Comcast rep for clarification.

not that but other deals have fine print that is hard to work out.

Some of the deals have free HBO for 3 mouths and then $10 for the rest of year 1 and after that full price. BUT the fine print say if you drop any part and then the deal ends and you pay full for all + maybe even the ETF fee. So did that say you must buy HBO to keep the other parts of the deal?

Does that 4 box thing come with the hidden outlet fee?? I can see comcast saying the boxes are part of the deal but the outlets are not.

He is talking the package that has all the premium stations. You are talking a totally different package. Jeep you know as well as i do that additional boxes are going to be added if and when you complete a order process. Im thinking 7.99 a month But you probably know better than me. You can probably get them free but figure 7.99 as im pretty sure thats what they charge after the hd fee which you wont be charged with that package.

HD Complete Triple Play was setup to get the Anyroom service bundled into a triple play. It's essentially Premier with Anyroom built into the price. Bryank what you posted doesn't change anything I posted before.

Yes, HD Complete is COMPLETE = HD Premier, main DVR, 2 or 3 satellite boxes + $7 modem. The AR DVR boxes is the only thing that sets apart HD Premier TP and HD Complete TP. The AR DVR boxes are not an additional charge and they are HD. I should know, I put these things together on a daily basis. You don't pay for another box unless you want more than 4 sets hooked up with a full STB in which case you'd pay for that additional box. The additional box wouldn't be a part of that Anyroom setup because currently 4 boxes is the max (main and 3 satellites).

Can't understand why that is so hard to understand. Instead of online chat with C*, call the 800 number and speak to someone.

Mike, your parents aren't on HD Complete. They are on Premier.

Complete came out mid 2011. Shortly after the "official" launch of AR DVR.

Joe, I don't know the offer selected but I just ran through it myself and the total comes up as $206.99.

off topic what is the cheapest for the hd preferred plus and does it include hd dvr? Also would I qualify for the visa card? I just have the triple play preferred.

Actually Joe, I know how you came up with that pricing. That's the everyday price of that package. Existing customers that try to sign up for it will see that.

Last post from me on the matter. That's taken directly from the website. In my area the promo rate is $199.99+$7.00 modem. The Everyday Price is $239.99+$7.00 modem. The "second page" that you got I didn't encounter. Sorry. Sounds like the OP has a promo for $189.99+$7.00 modem. My only intent was to clarify that the package did include the 4 boxes in the price quoted.

You tell me what happens if you decide to go with it because I asked a Comcast rep inside a Best Buy and he said the DVR fee is included but additional box fees would apply.

you could uncheck all of them, so the price wont go up, and you would still get all of them after installation
