If you have/get the protection package (whatever they call it now) probably nothing.

Joey would add $7/mo. protection plan has nothing to do with monthly. Upgrade cost probably will need a conversation with a CSR or DIRT rep.

Boba, I was addressing installation which I gathered OP was as well because he asked "How much to INSTALL?"

Probably no charge for Joey/install however it will be another 2 year commitment and $7/Mo.

No charge for Joey. Install is $90. No add'l commitment.

Incorrect. See my last post. Install could be $15 with protection plan, $95 without, depending on account status, but more likely free.

I would not think so since you already have the Hopper. Maybe you should just buy a Joey. Have you conrcted Dirt????

If you're a little bit handy, compare the DIRT leased cost with the price to own from some place like DishDepot//ebay/Amazon/etc.

Might end up around the same price to just buy one outright. Plus there wouldn't be any extension of contract with owned equipment.

Edit: Just noticed the OP's update saying he got it free with 24 month commitment. Other people were getting charged $50 to $100 recently for Joeys. YMMV on pricing since customers are rated differently and may depend on the protection plan too.

I bought a Joey for less than $60 from an amazing place. I can deactivate it and later reactivate it whenever I want. But sounds like yours will be on full time so see if you can get it for free first.

Just connect the coax to a port on the node. Prob have to remove a 75 ohm terminator first.

You would not think so what? There is definitely a commitment renewal when you add a leaded Joey.

$95, not $90. (typo) But, otherwise correct. No add'l commitment is required, and none is offered for a reduced rate.
Yes, one can lower the $95 to $15, if they take the Protection Plan, which is $7/mo with a 4 month minimum, iirc. So, that option is still $43.
There is no free option.

I know this, as I had contacted DIRT recently with the same question.

Personally, I think they should allow self-installs for Joeys. It's not rocket surgery.

Define "definitely". I was told there is no such commitment when I inquired. Although, I see now that the OP got one for free with a commitment. But, there does not appear to be one for those who pay.

Says you, but NO definite, official conformation. I'm with Gary. Hopefully Roger will do us the favor of sharing his outcome.

no charge for joey or install- may be 24 month sentence but that's ok

There's your answer straight from the OP, folks. I also contacted DIRT a while back, they said there is a commitment.

Good lord!! Unless the English language has changed recently, "may be" still means "MAY BE. " I will defer only to Roger's confirmation, 'cause his is the case we are discussing.

Well there's still a commitment and I stand firmly on it. It's just like any other upgrade. Arguing about it here won't make a difference, maybe OP will clarify, but I think he means "may be" as in "even though there is a commitment, I'll do it anyway." Thank you for your failed attempt at teaching English, though.
