As I am sure everyone is aware of the price increases occuring on 3/1/06. And I am sure everyone knows that D* is moving to lease only on 3/1/06. All of the info is on this thread if you don't know: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=50899 But did you know that if you currently own your equiptment you will be charged $4.99 for your FIRST receiver in addion to every other receiver? That is unless you turn your equiptment in to D* and become a leasing customer... This is according to a friend of mine who is the manager of the TV department at my local Circuit City. He said that CC got the info today about how the transition will take place.
