Re: Charter is forcing everyone to have cable tv boxes
It's unfortunate that they are charging for the boxes. Some providers give at least 2 free to compensate for the change.
As to buying a box, the downfall is the high cost (if you can buy one that is) and that you are bound to the manufacturer of the box. Once that box is out of warranty, you will have a high cost to repair/replace. Renting equipment helps you with that.
Besides, $5 is high for a box? If you have a DVR box then that would drive the cost up Add HD to that then it would be more.
