    I personally don't feel the up front costs are that low right now as it is for most -- paying $200+ for a receiver even after signing a two year contract.

    The satellite and cell phone industry differ because (as far as I know) you wouldn't be able to use these receivers with other providers as you can with unlocked cell phones.

    Most don't have to pay those up front fees (unless they aren't eligible as "new" customers).
    Most of the low-priced wireless phones are NOT unlocked though. That privilege will cost you another $200-300 dollars up front per phone for one of the top-line phones.
