My father is thinking about getting Dtv. They offered him a free HRxx, Hxx, SWM, MRV, HD, and Dish with install ($0-$99) depending on how complicated it is. Basically, it will cost him $51/month the first year then jump up to $82 for the second (Choice Xtra). I told him at the end of the 2 year contract he can switch to something else, stay the course, or renegotiate with Dtv to see if he can lower the monthly cost. He is retired and believes $82 (don't we all) is way too much for TV. Can anybody tell me what typically Dtv does (discounts) after the 2 year contract if he calls retention? What type of discounts can he expect if any to stay with Dtv after 2 years?
