Exactly, since the first Digital STB is not itemized, here, I called it an included
It was simple to arrive at this:
I noticed they started listing Digital STBs, available for a la carte Digital Premiums, for $5, so that is the actual STB fee.
Therefore, if one has Digital Classic (with the included STB) for $10, then, in reality, it is $5 for programming and $5 for STB, just not itemized.
It is then $10 to upgrade
that included $5 STB to a DVR, so the total cost , in reality
IOW, it shows on the bill as Digital Classic $10 and DVR $10, but in reality, Classic programming is $5 and DVR is $15.
As a side note, what do think the Digital Addtl Outlet fee is?
Here it is $7. (I have heard it varies from $5-$8)
What they are giving you is a $5 STB and $2 for mirroring.
