That has been mentioned many times before.
If you have a QAM tuner of your own, you can just get basic service for only about ~$9 and save a lot of money, but only get the local channels.
If you need to rent a STB, because you don't have your own equipment, you have to pay the mac address gateway fee of ~$5 local HD only OR ~$8 for 1st tier with ALL non-premium HD, music, IPG and etc OR a premium movie tier for ~$11. & a rental fee for an HD STB ~$10.
If you want the DVR service on your HD STB (or SD STB), that's an additional fee of about ~$10.
