Re: [DVR] Set Top Box price increase
OK help me out on this. When I got my MRDVR last summer I remember that the more STB's you added the deeper the discount. I currently have a MRDVR and 5 HD STB's and pay $47.99 total for all of my equipment. With the price increase I was thinking about returning one of the HD STB's and replacing it with a spare digital adaptor that I have, to save some money. So I got to wondering what the new cost would be since I would have five total STB's instead of 6 and therefore my discount would change. I asked the question online and also called the store. Both told me the same thing - that there was no discount based on number of boxes and that I would be charged $9.99 less for each box I returned. Of course this makes no sense but they all acted like I was crazy. I even tried to do a return of equipment online and when I did it showed NO CHANGE in my monthly equipment charges.
So what gives here? Anyone else on a plan like mine ever returned equipment and if so how much of a difference did it make to your bill? Have they changed the plan and now you get no decrease in your equipment charges until you reach a total below what you are currently paying? In my case that would mean I would have to return three STB"s before I would get any decrease in charges.
