I am with dish network right now and they leased me this VIP622 HD DVR receiver. It works very well and I can use it to record OTA Local HD Channels. 90% of the time I still just watch my local HD channels. I don't know how much I would have to pay to keep this receiver if I were to cancel my service, but I can also pick one up used from online auctions sites for around $400. Seems like I could just buy it used for a fair price and then use it as standalone hd dvr receiver without subscribing to any satellite service.
Anyone know if it will work without any subscription?
