Re: also need to look at mirroring / outlet fees as well
DirecTV charges an $8 DVR service charge. This charge covers all of the DVRs on the account. Typically with cable you pay a DVR Fee on each box.
The first receiver on the account does not get charged a lease or mirror fee, well it actually does but is credited off to make it look like your saving money. I pay $6 extra for having a second box. Plus an $8 DVR service change and another $3 for Whole House DVR service. Im not sure what it costs with cable as $230 gets me everything and prices are not broken down. But that includes 2 whole house HD DVRs. My point is cable does not charge you to an upfront fee to rent their equipment and neither should satellite. But oh well, I was duped into paying $300 for these shoddy DVRs. Live and learn I guess
quote:Never heard of that. But since you typically spin thing sin a pro DirecTV way, I wouldnt doubt if youre making it up. I have Time Warner and have never been charged an install fee or any type of fee for having a tech come out for any reason, including an equipment swap. The only fee I ever paid for anything was the $15 or whatever activation for digital phone to have my number ported. DirecTV tries to push their protection plan on me every chance they get. If anything goes wrong with their crap, I'll just cancel the service and pay the ETF.
cable systems have a protection plan as well and I think there may be a fee to have some one come over to swap the box out.
For the future of our nation, we must unite and vote out the terrorist known as Hussein Obama. Come November 6 2012 we must remove the socialist pig out of office and get our country back on the RIGHT track.
Atlantic Broadband does have a protection plan that you'd have to pay of $6/month to avoid any fees for having techs come out.
They typically have installation fees too unless you do something, both times I've had them come it's either by taking the protection plan and agreeing to pay it for 6 months (a net savings of nothing, really) or doing auto-pay (which reduced it, but didn't eliminate it).
