I just moved to a new house and haven't had satellite before.. I've heard of existing subscribers getting deals for buying an HDTV receiver but haven't heard of new subscribers.. I've tried the "the cable box is only $5 a month but the satellite receiver is $700" but all I got was "I've seen HDTV receivers at best buy for $199" or other b.s.


any suggestions?

Call D* and ask for the customer retention department. If you tell them that you're looking at HDTV and the STBs are really expensive, you should be able to get a credit. I asked for a $250 credit and received a $150 credit upon to be applied upon receiver activation. If you're nice and let the customer rentention department (not the CSR that answers) know that you're comparing the $5/mo cable box rental to D*, they should approve something for you. Other forum existing D* subscribers have received $100-250 credit on their D* bill.
