I want to add another H25 to my system. Both Directv and solid signal have them for $99. If I buy it from Solid Signal will it come with a access card and will I have to sign up for a two year agreement?

Thanks



Tom

Thanks for the quick reply. My two year agreement is up in March. if I do this now, my contract will start over and will it hurt my chanes on getting a free upgrade in March since I have the protection plan.

You would need to find someone that had an owned one, and purchase a new access card.

I don't mind signing a 2 year contact but my contract is up in March and may just wait until then and get a FREE upgrade since I have the protection plan upgrade.............

The main difference between ordering from Solid Signal versus ordering from DirecTV is that with Solid Signal you are assured of getting a new unit and the model number you are ordering.  When you order from DirecTV, you can get a refurbished unit and any model that DirecTV deems comparable to the one you want.

Where would be the best place to find a owned receiver?

You can try the "buy and sell" section here on DBSTalk, or you can try eBay.  However always get the RID number FIRST and call Access card department to confirm OWN status.


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
