Here's some info from the pre-order I just placed. Hopefully it's helpful to others.
If you pre-order, and your services are already bundled, you receive a $5 discount which starts immediately.
The Premier package w/ 2 HD DVRs was 68.97 per month. The HD DVRs are priced at $12.95 per month each. When you add the bundle discount, that drops to $55 per month.
They are running a promotion that allows you to add a movie package (either Stars+Showtime or HBO or HBO+Max) for $20 which includes an HD DVR. In other words, for another $8, you can get one of the movie packages.
After adding such a package, my bundle price rose to 148.97 ($61.23 of which was the TV portion). That doesn't include taxes -- they don't have an estimate for taxes in Oregon yet (or at least she didn't).
Cable cards are available for $2.99 each for TIVO owners/fans.
Basic service ("Premier") includes Fox Sports Northwest since that is our regional Fox Sports affiliate. The rep lives in Seattle and has FIOS TV and she receives FSNW. That doesn't necessarily confirm that they have the same licensing agreement worked out in Oregon yet.
Finally, as far as install dates, she still quoted the 1/6/08 date for the launch of service. She said that is the date all of the state licensing takes effect, so she didn't expect it could or would happen sooner.
Caveat: the sales rep made two or three statements that suggested she wasn't very familiar with the technical aspects of their service, so some of her info may not be completely accurate. e.g. she thought the Home Media Hub ($20/month) could stream HD video to the other HD receivers in the house. I have read in several places, including Verizon's web site, that it can only stream non-HD content. An update is expected in 2008 to allow HD streaming.
