    Can't say anything about discounts as I leased mine at full price. I love it, but keep in mind that doing it this way does not guarantee which Genie you'd get. Other changes might be required depending on what your current hardware and setup is.

    Also, if you don't have Whole Home, that is required, which is $3 if you have separate charges for HD and DVR.

    Doesn't getting your first Genie now win you the Advanced Receiver Service Fee of $25; even if it is your only receiver?

    It does, unless you already have WH service under the old separate charge per item pricing structure at the time of the Genie upgrade.

    I wouldn't think so. I believe an older account would still just add the $3, not replacing the separate fees with the inclusive fee. If that is the case, then the net increase would be $5, not $3. I thought the $25 fee was only for accounts started after that particular date
