Re: [DIRECTV] $99 for a new box?!
I have always wondered about that. I pay, lets say $99.00, for a new box and a monthly service charge for the box. When I leave DirecTV I have to return the box so I have not really purchased it. And I do not get my $99.00 back.
The way I look at it, over a 24 month contract my subscription cost is not the $59.00/month advertised ( or what ever ) but is $59.00 + $99/24= $63/ month. + all the monthly receiver fees, HD fees, etc etc.
The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.
