Owning a receiver is convenient because if you decide to deactivate then of course you don't have to return it (because its yours obviously) and don't have to pay upfront cost for another receiver everytime you decide to activate again, Is an advantage for guest rooms and frequent movers, And if you cancel account with dues paid, then you can sell it, and another advantage would be if you have another leased receiver, and want to cancel account under contract, You pay the ETF then sell your owned receiver to offset the cost.
Another advantage for owning is activating on somebody else's account (With his authorization of course) So it's not tied to only one account.
This..."No one owns the HR34 unless you paid the steep price for it $600 or $700..."
That's account stacking and against TOS.
Not unless you cancel your own account and activate on someone else's. And do Directv sells HR34's? and for how much if they do?
Right, because a core group on here gets them for free.
what is the upsize to owning your receiver? i don't it, the HR34 came out like 3 years ago, now the HR44 are coming out and in few years they probably come out with HR54 or something
DirecTV employees can own them.
So you're telling me that only Directv employees can own them and everybody else can lease only?
No. I never said only.
Not sure what you mean here.
An owned receiver can be activated on another account, if the old account is current and paid in full, but the receiver needs a new access card for the other account.
As can those who agree to say nice things about them after "testing".
Or not say anything at all too.
That's exactly what I meant to say, it's just I didn't explain myself in detail.
So does anybody knows exactly how much there selling to own HR34's for? If they sell it
I do not know what you mean by if they sell them as the HR34 is a Genie unit, do you mean own? However the HR34 is 399.00 to lease
SolidSignal is doing a deal where you can get them for 349 leased
Ain't it $399 to lease at least that's what I was quoted. So I expect I'll be more to own. Or it could be that I'm on legacy non-SWM.
It's still a leased unit for $349 from Solid Signal.
From Solid Signal's page on the HR34: As of 3/1/06 DIRECTV® now requires a 24 month commitment and all equipment must be returned to DIRECTV® if customer cancels service with DIRECTV®
You don't own it. DirecTV does and they want it back if you stop doing business with them.
