Pricing changes were (apparently) effective 3/3/10; you got them installed before then, as did I.

I paid $0, you paid $50 each for 2. Ergo, you were in a lower customer tier than I was prior to 3/3/10.

QED, you would still be paying $50 for the boxes.


Wrong. Read some of the posts regarding the February changes.....

Now it appears the game may have changed again on 3/3/10.

The February changes pertained to monthly charges for the boxes, not for their upgrade price. I simply said I paid nothing for a 211k in December. The rest is just guesswork.

Yep, the 2/1 additional receiver fee change has nothing to do with the changes in equipment upgrade pricing as of 3/3.

That is good news but what if you just had new HD receivers added 2 days ago?? I had to pay $100 ($50 each) to add 2 211's and sign the 2 year contract. Would this mean I could now have gotten those for free??


Prior to 3/3/10, plan "A" customers were "asked" to pay $50 for each 211 or 222 under the DIU promo. That being said, many DIU upgrades are handled on a case by case basis. In other words, the sqeaky wheel often gets the grease. If Rasputin paid $0 for a 211 in December then his wheel was probably just a bit sqeakier.

It was also likely that since it was the last month of my original commitment they were happier to throw me a 211 and sign me up for 2 more years. All I really asked was how much it would cost for a new HD box in the bedroom and they said "Oh, free."
