DHPP can also cover receivers that you own, which are otherwise out of warranty... so folks with older owned receivers can benefit.

What is and isn't covered on leased receivers has always been sketchy.

I know DHA (or DHPP) warranty covers shipping and provides some free or reduced cost service calls that otherwise cost you money. I had a 501 replaced last year, for instance, and they just shipped me a new (refurb) one free and a return tag to send the broken one back. If I had not been on that plan, it would have cost me to ship the unit back.

Unless you have credit card auto pay.

I ended up purchasing it when one of my neighbor's trees grew sufficiently to cut off the signal, meaning I either had to ask them to top their tree (can't do that) or relocate my dish.

I opted for the latter.

Since I live in an area where this kind of thing is likely to happen again, it was worth the money.
