I've raised this issue of the "free Hopper" before, but the Dish apologists come back with the remark about the fine print that states "DVR fees apply..." Right! So what's so "free" about the Hopper? Nothing. It's akin to false advertising. And yes, of course you don't have to "pay" for the Hopper, but a monthly lease fee is still not "free."
Agreed! The fact that D* doesn't include ALL the monthly fees on the order summary page screams fraud to me.
People that defend that practice are chumps.
