I looked into the hopper but there are 5 tv's in the home that would be watching a different channel most times. so the kids would have a fit if they can't watch nick etc....so technically it would require two hoppers and 3 joeys to make it work.
$7 x 4 = $28/month (first is free).
I believe that would be 2 Hoppers and 3 Joeys, too.
There is also a $6/month DVR fee as well as a $4/month whole room DVR service fee.
That would be $38/month total.
Other options if you want all DVRs:
(1) 5 HD Solo 211(k)s...that would be $28/month and a one-time $40 DVR integration fee along with having to have your own external hard drives.
(2) 722(k), 3 211s....that would be $27/month ($7 x 3 and a $6/month DVR fee....you would still need external hard drives for the 211s and the one-time $40 fee for the DVR integration fee).
(3) 2 722(k)s and 1 211......that would be $30/month ($17 for the extra HD Duo DVR, $7 for the HD Solo, and a $6 DVR fee) [would also need that one-time $40 DVR integration fee and an external hard drive).
The only thing that concerns me is if providers decide to increase receiver fees, DVR fees, and whole room DVR service fees.
