    The $ sign usually indicates a PPV item. Do you subscribe to the channel?

    I also noticed this yesterday. I called and talked to A CSR. He said that the charge to record a game without Sunday Ticket is $50. Since I have Sunday ticket I won't be charged. I expect to have a fight with billing after Sunday.

    in the guide are 2 options to record the games. Select the one prior to the game start time.

    I just saw this a few minutes ago when I setup to record a game from ST, which I have. If you hit the info button while the game is highlighted in the to do list, it shows as $0.00. Maybe this has something to do with the ST channels sharing bandwidth with PPV channels?

    Just called. They said if you do get charged you will be reimbursed. No answer as to why that is happening

    Recorded two games yesterday and account shows $0. Info on the games shows a $59.99 charge. I guess this means that if you don't have Sunday Ticket, you can buy individual games. Looks like a real money maker for D* and the NFL tword the end of the season.
