Kagato said:Considering a DirecTivo less than $200 at a lot of places, and it's not unusual to see them at $99 and $49 price points, yeah, it's too much. Way too much. A new customer should be able to get the single tuner PVR/DVR for next to nothing, and a two tuner for about $100. Most people buy the Dish PVRs based on price. For the most part they are cheaper than Tivo, at least in the retail brick and morter channel. But that's changing, so Dish is going to need to look at prices again.

This is cost effective and does away with the extra receiver fee. Of course you could buy what 4 directivos for the same price, but you would pay extra receiver fees firstname.lastname@example.org=14.97.
