Nope, no additional monthly charge. Once the technician comes out, which will be tomorrow, I'll report back to let you know more details on how it works, what channels I get, etc. I know it's a couple of PPV channels, but there are a couple more channels of regular broadcasting which is all 4K. If I had to guess, ESPN is probably one of them.
The only thing I don't understand about DIRECTV are the receivers. I was asking the lady I was talking to yesterday if I could just exchange one of my mini receivers for this one, and she said no because my monthly fee includes renting the receivers. The mini receivers cost $99. Doesn’t that mean I'm buying it and I own it? It's been my experience that the people who you talk to when you call in don't know anything. It's always best to ask one of the technicians when they come out. She said the only thing I own is my wireless bridge, which streams the DIRECTV signal to my wireless receiver, and I own my Nomad, which allows me to transfer or stream content from my DVR to my phone or tablet, which I've used probably a handful of times. That doesn't cost anything monthly either, just the cost of the box.
