It's the same as the lease fee, but charged to owned boxes.

These days it called an "Additional Receiver Fee". ;)

At $5 the leased/additional receiver fee is much cheaper than the other service providers (my friend with MetroCast is paying $15/box). IMO, this already gives DirecTV an advantage over the other providers in this area so they'll never get rid of it.


If you don't want to do sub-models at least do the new equipment...I'm just sayin'
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.

My tradition in dealing with Company's like that is you go up $5.00 i go down by the same amount.:)

you choice, if you want mutiple boxes expect to pay for mutiple boxes. Curious as to what you drop when the electric company gets a 20 percent increase in their rates

I only have one TV... You know if they included two boxes, they'd increase the costs elsewhere. Why would I want to pay more when I only own one TV? I don't want to pay for hidden fees for a second box I don't need.
