In order to qualify for the $400 dish winback deal, I was forced to take the basic cable package plus the digital package. That is $42 + $15. This should include the receiver and remote. On top of that, I requested the HDTV package for an extra $5. That means I get one HD receiver instead of the digital receiver.
So they way I understand it, I get only one receiver. By asking for the HDTV add on, they change the receiver to an HD capable unit. You can request additional receivers, but I didn't get that information.
Others have stated that they were able to get the basic package plus HDTV and avoid the digital package charge. That was not available to me.
