I currently have Hopper and 2 joey setup. I am thinking about adding a 3rd.

What would it cost me initially and monthly?

Thanks.

Can't quote a price, but consider another Hopper instead of another Joey. After the initial expense it will be the same $7 per month.

So another hopper would be the same monthly cost? $7 a month is all my bill would go up?
If that's the case, that sounds like a good idea.

If all four tv's will be on at the same time, 2 Hoppers will save a lot of grief.

What they said. Another Hopper'd be, upfront, $50-100 leased and, like, $400 purchased. IM a DIRT member or call in to see exactly what you qualify for.
