What's the difference between the 722 and the 722K?

I just became a new Dish subscriber a week ago. I reluctently signed up for a 2 year commitment and got a 722k and a 211k with the new Eastern Arc 1000.4 dish but am being charged $7.00/month to lease this equipment. Now I'm reading that not only did people get free 722k's, but did not have to commit to a contract by paying a $99 fee. I am angry at myself for not researching this more before I subbed. It was exactly 1 week ago so maybe I can still change my agreement? Another new discovery was this new 1000.4 dish only works with mpeg4 equipment so activating any of my older equipment is out.

That is true, a no commitment is available for a $99 upfront fee. However you also do not get the reduced monthly rate for the first 6 months which depending on what you signed up for could amount to $120 - $210 in savings the first 6 months.
