That sounds suspiciously like the "additional outlet fee" you get charged if you don't have your receiver plugged into a phone line. Since yes you are correct the DVR fee is included as part of the DVR Advantage pack, if it weren't you'd actually be charged $5.98 for DVR service. So do you have your receiver plugged into a phone line?Floridian said:I currently have the Dish DVR Advantage w/ Top 200 programming. I pay $49.99 for the programming and an additional $5.99 for the DVR service. I have the 522 DVR receiver. I thought that the $5.99 DVR service fee was included in the $49.99 monthly fee. Can someone confirm this. Thanks.
