I haven't paid a thing for the box in the 4 years I've had it.  Got it as 
part of one of those tripple play deals.  Been through three of the 
standard digital boxes and even upgraded to the HD box at no additional 
charge.  Although, I'm sure they've more than made up for it in the 4 
years of service fees I've paid.
