$5 for an extra receiver, $6 for extra ViP receiver. The DVR fee is actually $5.98 or $71.76 per year (per receiver) but adds major functionality.jonsnow said:Yes, there is a 5 dollar fee so that if you want to record one program on one receiver while watching another live program you have to pay Charlie 60 dollars a year or get a new dvr receiver, in which case you will have to pay a 60 dollars a year dvr fee. And in order to receive free channels you have to pay Charlie several hundred dollars a year to protect babies from seeing boobies, I don't know the exact figure as I lost track of all the core package price increases. 5 seems low, it's probably 6 by now.
I agree, if you want free TV, put up an OTA antenna.James Long said:$5 for an extra receiver, $6 for extra ViP receiver. The DVR fee is actually $5.98 or $71.76 per year (per receiver) but adds major functionality.
But your biggest complaint is that E* won't give freebees to people who won't make a $30 commitment to the service. The free previews are advertisements --- but by choosing not to subscribe to a base AT level package customers have clearly stated that they are not willing to take the next step. (DISHFamily customers have chosen a special package where previews are specifically not included due to content.)
You want free TV? Put up an OTA antenna or a FTA setup. E* is subscription satellite.
DISH charges $5.98 DVR fee that is added to the $5/$6 receiver lease fee. Either lease fee puts it over the $10/month Comcast charges for their dual tuner HD DVR here. I can't check their current pricing - it seems their website isn't accessible to someone without Flash version 8!DishSubLA said:Please, everyone seems to forget that cable's avearge fee for DVR service is at least TWICE as much as Dish's.
