    They call it a programming fee in some markets, which doesn't break the rules. Where it is an equipment fee, they don't charge TiVo users for it, like where I am. It sucks, and it's unfair and uncompetitive, but to be honest, I'd much rather see the FCC go after them for anti-competitive pricing on their internet plans than for CableCard devices.

    Exactly. Comcast recently changed their pricing structure in my area of South Florida. Used to be a $2.50 charge for the cable card and no outlet fee - now it's $9.95 for an additional HD outlet with a $2.50 credit for "customer owned equipment." I guess they decided they could get away with charging for the outlet and crediting the equipment to generate more revenue, than just charging $2.50 for the cable card.
