Just thought I would mention it, to those who are interested, that Circuit City's website now has this receiver listed as going for $299.
Gee thanks. I was excited when I saw that in the paper. But now, thanks to you, they're gonna be out of stock when I go there later this week.Alan Gordon said:Just thought I would mention it, to those who are interested, that Circuit City's website now has this receiver listed as going for $299.
Phil T said:I was going to pick one up, but I called DirecTV and told them I currently have a Dish 6000 for HD only. I asked what they could do for me and they offered me the Hughes or Samsung for $99.00 including a 4x8 multiswitch. Installation is scheduled for next Saturday. I will pull the plug on Dish after seven years next weekend!
Phil T said:If you are a current subscriber, I would try for the $99.00 deal.
Here is a link. Lots of folks are getting it:
Phil T said:I have two DirecTivos I purchased in November. I kept my Dish 6000 for the HD pack only - $9.99 + $5.00 access fee. I saw the Hughes HTLHD last week at Soundtrack in Denver going for $299.00. I was going to buy one but thought I would try the $99.00 deal first. I read that it was only for 2 year+ subscribers, but they offered it to me right away when I told them they could get my $15.00 per month instead of Dish.
GaryPen said:Are you saying that you have been a D sub since Nov 2003? They gave you the $99 deal after 4 months?
Phil T said:Yes, but telling them I still had Dish for HD may have made a difference.
Alan Gordon said:Just thought I'd mention it that Circuit City is NOW selling the Hughes HTL-HD for $249.99. I think I'm going to take advantage of Price-Match Plus and get me the difference!
GaryPen said:Isn't it weird that D* is still selling it directly for $399 on their website? And, you don't even know which model you get!
