    Question Do you own or Rent a DirecTV Receiver

    Hi,

    I have just moved to the US from the UK and I was wondering if you own the satellite receiver from DirecTV or rent it. In the UK I had Sky in which I owned the box.



    Thanks,

    Toby

    Most people LEASE the receiver but you can buy one if you want to pay the much higher price for ownership. Forget everything you know about SKY Directv is a completely different company.

    Except in rare cases all the new receivers are leased and after the 1st receiver you pay $5/month lease charge. You can get the basic SD receiver for free but if you want advanced receivers you need to pay a one time charge for the more advanced box. A SD DVR or HD receiver usually are $99 and a HD DVR is $199, that's not a purchase price, it's an upgrade charge for a leased receiver.
