Re: nevertheless

so the bill you full price for a cable card as the full box? Outlet + card rent fee.

under FCC law

Pay only for equipment you have. Your operator must give you a discount on any packages that include the price of a set-top box if you choose to use your own CableCARD-enabled device.

I'm not being billed for equipment, just a "premium outlet" fee. The company is assuming that because I'm renting two cable cards, I'm being served with an additional cable line to provide service to the second card.

In reality, I have a single coax drop coming in with a 3-way splitter; two legs for each cable card-enabled multituner and one cable modem.

I could argue with them to run an additional coax to the tap so that I'm accurately receiving this "premium outlet" that I'm being charged for, but it's kind of silly when it works fine with just one drop.

The video and Internet services are being billed at the promotional discounted rate through November of this year.
