New owned receivers don't trigger an extension of the commitment. Only leased.

Yes, you are correct. Sorry about that.

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

Yep. Just remember solid signal would send you a leased receiver. Some people care, others don't, and I am sure my feelings on it are well known by now.

I have a question that I've never seen asked before:


What if one were to purchase 2 DirecTV receivers, say a couple HR20-700s (RIDs owned), then go to DirecTV and ask to activate them under a new account? Is this allowed?

It would essentially be a 'month to month' commitment....... no?

I would much prefer this route, since the ball would be in the consumers court for once.

I have never done it, but I have heard that it is possible, but a PITA. I also heard that you will need all the info about the previous account it was on to go along with it. That could be BS, but that's what I was told by a friend that had someone in Canada trying to buy a receiver and open an account like that.
