Currently, existing customers will pay at least $100.00 for a Hopper upgrade and it can go as high as $449.00 for a single Hopper. You can always call but these are the upgrade requirements!

I paid $200 for 2 Hoppers and 2 Joeys. My wife and I are retired, have totally different viewing tastes, and have a lot of time to watch TV. It was a very good investment for us.

I'm moving in a week. Will either go TWC for 3 months then get it free; or sign up my wife and presumably get it free. Haven't tried Cable for 5 or 6 years, maybe they've improved? :rolleyes:

edit: Just got a quote for TWC "bundle" with only 2 boxes (DVR/HD), and the total with Road Runner standard is higher than Hopper+2 Joeys... no new customer deal there! Looks like I'll stick with Dish!
