Yes, the dvr wwould be free. She quoted the genie for $299. My thinking was the discounts with a free genie and client for free with a new 2 year commitment. That is about what dish would offer. Dish would end up being about $8 cheaper a month plus new equipment.
Didn't appreciate your smart comment. I was asking a serious question. Maybe I am asking too much from them but I think trying to get them to match the dish offer is reasonable. I can't be the first one to take this approach.
You didn't ask a question at all in the post I quoted. (see above)
They pretty much matched the offer. You were offered a free HDDVR free, which is usually $199 and Dish's site quotes the Hopper at $199.
The Hopper is a great product, especially if most of your recording is from the locals during primetime.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
