ROFL, is it April?

They can't be serious. If there is anything wrong or lacking with any of my 'rented' equipment, they are going to replace it anyway. That's the whole point of the rental fee!

Maybe TWC plans to buy a bunch of old cable boxes from ebay and hand those out to its basic customers, saving the newer boxes only for the people that pay this fee. If no, I don't see what they are really promising!?

They would likely be giving customers who don't pay the fees refurbs and boxes that were taken from customers paying the $7 fee.

They aren't replacing broken things for the people paying the $7 fee, they are replacing old things with new things.

The old things apparently function and can be given to other customers if they have a broken box or get a box for another TV.

Interesting. So they are trying to monetize choosing your own box. Kind of like paying extra for a 'matched pair' of RAM...
