The other thing you forgot is that Dish is charging a receiver service fee for the first receiver. It is just that this fee is not broken out on the bill as a separate line item. Also, unlike all of the other fees we have been discussing, this first receiver fee is specifically listed as a rental fee, which is exactly the type of fee that Dish is now not allowed to charge on purchased receivers. From the fine print on the back of any Dish bill:
"An equipment rental fee of $9 per month for the first receiver may be included in your base package price. This rental fee may be subject to tax in your State."
So, Dish is now obligated to credit back this $9 fee (or at least replace it with a new, lower fee) if the first receiver on the account happens to be purchased. Also, in my earlier post which you just quoted, I was not referring to the DVR service fee. My point was that even if the first receiver fee was zero (as you incorrectly claimed when you said it was waived) then Dish, by their own statement, is still obligated to lower that fee. Of course, the only way they could lower such a fee is to give us a monthly bill credit for having a purchased receiver.
I see the $9 disclaimer on my bill too but I don't see a credit.
