In my area they seem to lose a little bit on the pricing, but I'm sure
they gain from not having to maintain all those receiver boxes....
Digital Receiver with remote $5.50/mo.*
Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Receiver with remote $5.50/mo.
HD Receiver with remote $5.50/mo.
HD/DVR Receiver with remote $5.50/mo.
CableCARD device rental* $1.99/mo.
