55.00 - digital cable (first box rental fee included)
10.00 - HD DVR Service Fee
14.00 - two basic box rentals (6.95 x 2)
4.00 - Digital Movie PAK (Encore channels)
6.00 - HD PAK
40.00 - 5-Pak Movie bundle
129.00/month before taxes.
3,096.00 total cost over two years.
70.00 - Plus HD DVR Package
10.00 - lease fee for two basic boxes.
6.00 - Protection Plan (gives free service calls and hardware replacement)
42.00 - Movie channel bundle
128.00 - total programming cost.
9.00 - HD DVR hardware cost (200 + 20 S&H = 220.00 spread over two years).
137.00 - Total overall cost per month.
3,288.00 - Total cost for two years of service.
So as we can see BHN costs 192 bucks less total over a two year period.
If you bought two drinks (soda from machine @ 1.00/bottle) at work each week for two years that is more money than the cost of the upfront HD DVR cost with D*.
That is such a small amount of money it should in no way justify who you subscribe with.
Also don't forget that the third year and on with D* will be cheaper than BHN but I tend not to consider pricing that far out as things can change to skew everything.
Because its such a small amount of money over that two year period it really comes down to what you want from each company and cost should not be the deciding factor in this specific case. Sorry but when your spending over 1,500.00 a year I don't want to hear that spending an extra 100 bucks will make the whole family broke. If your that close on money you shouldn't be spending the 1,500.00 in the first place at least that is my thinking on it.
