I've read dozens of times that if you buy a $99 HD receiver at Best Buy that it's still "leased" and to actually OWN it, that it would be several hundred dollars. I've fulfilled my 2-year contract and all I want to do is activate 1 HD receiver (non DVR). I have NFL-ST which is obviously a high dollar package so I figured it could be worth a try to haggle with them to see what they would say about the contract issue. The CSR told me (as I knew) that if you receive a receiver from Directv that you enter into the 2-year contract. He told me that if I am not comfortable with it that I could "buy" my receiver. I said...yeah sure for $500 and he said that it wasn't that expensive. I told him ...really? If I go to Best Buy and purchase one for $99 that it is still leased and he responded with "No sir, if you get it at Best Buy you OWN it and you do not have a 2-year contract". I told him that would make me happy but that I was almost certain that he was wrong and that a Best Buy receiver is leased and requires the contract. He reiterated that it's OWNED and the entire conversation lasted about 15 minutes with him assuring me that I would not have a contract. Has anything changed or is that guy asleep at the wheel?? If pick it up at Best Buy and call to activate it and they tell me NO contract.... can they screw you into adding it anyhow?
