    Doesn't Fios, as an example charge $15.99 for the first DVR? The Dish charge is $6.(As a DVR fee) Then the second DVR is $14.99 with Fios, Dish is $10? Those prices are "in line?" If you are willing to pay Dish the Fios fees, maybe they will be willing to upgrade for free too.

    I have the same issue with the OP, we need more than three tuners. The three-tuner limitation of the Hopper forces some of us to have a two-Hopper system. However if I could get two Hoppers for $50 I would have switched from DirecTV to Dish. But Dish wanted $300 more for an extra Hopper/Joe combo.

    I am curious if the OP actually got the second Hopper for $50 or not.

    I don't know what FiOS charges. I specifically called out TW and Cincinnati Bell when I posted that.

    Except no body gets a second hopper free. To sit there and say this
    Wreaks of entitlement issues. Nobody gets a second hopper free, but this guy manages to get a second one down to 50$ and he still says no.
    Yes everyone should get the chance to ask for something but more often then not they forget there talking to a company and not bartering with some street side vendor.

    Thats all well and good except for the fact that he called Dish, Before he called in with his demands he was nobody on Dish's radar and still is.

    Ok, TWC..
    Equipment Charges Back to Top Digital, HD, DVR, HD-DVR Receiver. (Includes Remote Control) $6.50 /mo DVR, HD DVR Service Fee (per DVR)
    DVR or HD DVR Receivers require subscription to Digital Video Recorder Service.
    $10.95 /month

    That's for the first receiver. Not remotely as low as Dish, again who is at $6 only (DVR fee) as compared to $17.45

    I've been following prices for a very long time, while there can always be exceptions, Cable is NOT less than Dish for fees or as you put it "in line with" You are paying a premium to have the choice to upgrade with no cost. Only thing is, it's not at no cost.
