I swear something changes about my bill every month now. My January, February, and March bills were all different in some way. January's bill was the same as all of my bills in 2009. But then February's bill was a little different. I showed a $6 DVR service fee and a $7 leased receiver fee (I have 2 622's). Now my newest bill has a $17 HD DuoDVR receiver fee instead of the $7 leased receiver fee, which makes it $10 higher than last months bill. I thought with (2) 622's we would only see a $2-$4 increase?

Geez I can't keep up with all this. I can't wait to see what's on next months bill! :confused:

I bought 4 new calculators this year trying to get all this free stuff and no price increases to not raise by bill so much. I keep asking myself why would I ever pay more to watch TV?

2 -622 would carry $23 per month in fees. Thats DVR and addtional Duo included.
So add that you all your other programming and thats what your bill should be.

If you want Tell us what programming you have ,and we will let you know the price.

The equipment fee did go up $10, But our Base Packs went down as well.
You should also be getting a 6 month credit of $5 , unless you never had your receiver connected to a phone line.

I'm not sure about your numbers, but here's the totals from my bills:

Last month statment:

Feb 13 - Mar 12
STARZ Super Pak 12.99
Classic Gold 250 With Locals 62.99
Leased Receiver Fee 7.00
DVR Service 6.00
HD & Platinum 10.00
Total $ 98.98

New Statement:

Mar 13 - Apr 12
HD DuoDVR Receiver 17.00
STARZ Super Pak 12.99
America's Top 250 With Locals 62.99
DVR Service 6.00
Service Plan (15/25) 6.00
HD & Platinum 10.00
Total $ 114.98

So if you take away the recently added service plan, that's a $10 increase from last month. The $7 "leased receiver fee" from last months statement is gone and now they show a $17 "HD DuoDVR receiver" fee.

Well according to what you posted ,your last month bill is wrong.
only Solo Non DVR's are $7 Per month.
If thats What you had last month, then yes your bill would have increased if you now have a Duo DVR.

Well I've had (2) 622's for a long while now. So I guess they just screwed up last months bill. I guess I need to compare the new bill with January's bill when I get home.
You should do that for sure. Because Something is not right, giving the info you posted.

At worst, If you didn't have DVR atvantage option in January, Your Fee's would have been $5 for locals,$5.98 For DVR and $7 for addtional HD receiver..
Even Still it's only a $ .98 Difference if you HD DVR atvantage Pack.

Well I guess they screwed up somehow, because here are the numbers from my January bill:

Jan 13 - Feb 12
Classic Gold 250 With DVR 67.99
DVR Receiver 12.00
HD & Platinum 10.00
Total $ 89.99

That makes my newest bill $6 more than last years bills. Of course that's not counting the $5 credits for the next few months and not counting Starz, which I just recently added. It just seemed really confusing because my last 3 statements were all a little different from one another.
