This is not leasing in the same way that you "lease" a car or "lease to own" furniture. This is leasing as in renting. Think renting a car from Hertz, leasing an apartment. You never own either of them.tigerwillow1 said:If what is referred to as the lease fee is really a lease fee, there has to be some point where the equipment is paid off. A few years ago I had to pay $199 upfront for an HR22. I'm stuck with the older slow box while the new customers get the HR24 for $0 upfront. The new guy with no history who is free to bail in 2 years now gets a better deal than the 15 year customer with a proven record. Guess it's all in how you look at it, doesn't seem like a very good business model to me. If it weren't for the slowness of the HR22 (even with the new GUI) I wouldn't care. Why not send the older boxes with the "free" deal and let the loyal customers get the new ones?
