The $6 is for the required wireless gateway. But it works very well.
Addl fees: 10$ HD Technology Fee
With the U200 package, no extra movie or sports packages, including taxes, should run you about $87 for 12 months. Then it goes up $50, but they will negotiate to +$15
The DVR is junk in operation, but the picture is good.
OH, and I only have one TV, so don't know about the extra box.

1. I see that they charge $7/mo for each wireless receiver. Is this the only option for viewing programs on secondary tvs? Do they offer hard-wired receivers that would cost less? With our current cable provider, we only have 1 HD-DVR on the main tv and the secondary tvs use free digital converter boxes. The boxes don't get all of the channels that the main tv gets, but that's ok with us. Does U-Verse offer free digital converter boxes in lieu of receivers with monthly fees?
2. I also see that there is a $6/mo fee for the internet equipment. To avoid the monthly fee with my current provider, I simply bought my own cable modem. What kind of equipment is required to get AT&T internet? Is it something that can be purchased like a cable modem or am I stuck leasing it?
Besides all of the other usual taxes and surcharges, are there any other recurring monthly fees like the two mentioned above?
