said by Skippy25:I know they are always looking to bump up your bill. My local cable company actually gives you a STB that blocks out the HD channels which ironicly I receive since I simply just plug my TV into the cable, the HDTV channels are there at least the locals but they want an up charge for a HD box which you don't need at all. LOL. That make sense???
The charging per receiver when you owned them was a scam to begin with.
It took $0 more dollars for them to deliver you signal to 1 TV or 10.
Just like the HD fee used and the fact that Dish charges $10 (at the time I was with them) just so you can have the component connection on the STB enabled.
Bottom line is that these people make up fees that have no relation to cost and they know we have to pay it because we dont have a much of a choice.
