Was just curious, will it cost me more money from dish if I buy a 3rd receiver from DishStore for the bedroom. The time has come to go HD and before I go buying a TV and new receiver I figured to check what it might do to my pricing. I may get the 211 or 722, but will dish charge me for an extra box at that point? Or, what would it cost me from dish if I just got a 3rd unit from them instead of buying my own. Obviously if there is no added fee, I am better off just buying my own unit. Or, since dish allows 4 tvs for free, would they take back my 222 and replace it with 2 211 units as this would still give me 4 TVs given that I have a 722 as well.

Make sense? I have a 222 and 722 = 4 TVs, instead 2x 211 and a 722 =4 TVs.

I just dont know how they work all their pricing and I would liek to somehow get HD in the bedroom the easiest and cheapest way possible.

Thanks

DishNet charges identical additional monthly fees per receiver regardless of whether you own or lease the equipment.

Something is not adding up because the 222 is an HD box. If you need HD on 3 tvs then you will want to repace the 222 w/ 2 211s . Then your mo. bill will stay the same.

Dunno the best way to go about doing that but doesn't hurt to call Dish a few times first.

DISHVIP, Did i read this wrong? copy and pasted from above first "sticky"

• Fees Related to Additional Receivers – Effective February 1, 2010, the fee structure related to additional receivers on new and existing customer accounts will change. Beginning February 1, 2010, a new Additional Receiver Fee will replace the current Additional Receiver Fee, TV2 Receiver Connection Fee and DVR Service Fee. As discussed above, for certain customers’ accounts, each receiver activated beyond the first will no longer be subject to a TV2 Receiver Connection Fee. Additionally, the DVR Service Fee will no longer be associated with each DVR on a customer’s account; instead a single “whole-home” DVR Service Fee will apply to the entire customer account.

This last post is correct, but doesn't say what you thought it said.
Lets break it down one sentence at a time:

Fees Related to Additional Receivers – Effective February 1, 2010, the fee structure related to additional receivers on new and existing customer accounts will change.
OK, stuff is changing.

Beginning February 1, 2010, a new Additional Receiver Fee will replace the current Additional Receiver Fee, TV2 Receiver Connection Fee and DVR Service Fee.
So instead of having 3 separate fees (Additional Receiver Fee, TV2 Receiver Connection Fee and DVR Service Fee) for each receiver, they are creating one new combined fee.

As discussed above, for certain customers’ accounts, each receiver activated beyond the first will no longer be subject to a TV2 Receiver Connection Fee.
So the TV2 receiver connection fee is going away "for certain customer's accounts". Who are "certain customers?"

Additionally, the DVR Service Fee will no longer be associated with each DVR on a customer’s account; instead a single “whole-home” DVR Service Fee will apply to the entire customer account.
Previously, there was a $5.98 per month per DVR fee. Now, there is just one fee per account instead of per DVR.

Nothing in the quote says there won't be fees for additional recievers. It says no additional DVR fees and (for "certain customers") no TV2 Receiver Connection Fee, but there would still be the typical "new Additional Receiver Fee" for each additional box.

Also notice (going back to the original post) that they don't specify any difference in monthly fees between owned or leased equipment.

kheldar, yes i did the chat with dish network and also ran down the street to a dealer... dish4you. The "tv2 connection fee is going away" is what i did not understand. I have had Dish since 02 and have never had a land phone line {cell phone family}, and have never been charged the "connection fee" before, nor knew one existed. It was a $5 a month fee for not having a phone line hooked up, for some reason i never was charged? I interrupted this "connection fee" as like connections to rg-6. I now unterstand $7 NON DVR $10 DVR SOLO $17 DUAL DVR HD
thank you tho
