Good luck hope you don’t regret it I did when I went to Dish then back to DirecTV never been happieri know the monthly cost is the same, i had owned receivers so i could turn them off when i felt like it.
you are WRONG about the hr44 not being owned , i had two of them and sold them on e-bay with no problem.
the 44s came from X employees and or commercial accounts.
after i sold them, the new owners had NO problem activating!
COM3000 video headend does 4K as well.HR54s are allowed in commercial accounts as that's the only supported way for them to get 4K (they require one HR54 and C61K per 4K TV) so whenever they eventually provide commercial accounts a proper 4K solution - presumably Genie 2 + clients - there will be some owned HR54s coming available.
