Sorry If I wasn't clear. I meant if she activated it would she be able to cancel without being forced into a 2 year commitment. I understand (sorta) my penalties if she went past a month without activating.cybrsurfer said:Unfortunately the new leasing program squashes hopes of buying a system as a gift, because it has to be activated, and if not activated must be returned to DirecTV within a certain time frame. If you don't return it to them when they send out a return kit you get charged the buyout fee. (HR-20 $749 to buy minus leasing purchase price). Also you would be charged for the 2 year commitment.
For you new rental, make sure the landlord actually owns the land and house and it's not a condo association, ask permission. If you get the OKay from landlord then have movers connection come out and install the new Dish for you. Obviously they will survey the site and let you know if it's possible.
Not worried about condo issues in a rural area. Just reception and my contract with D*.
But are you saying they (D*) will check it out before I even sign a lease? I have doubts about it.
I appreciate your response though. Thank you.
