As of September 2013, Verizon is now charging $5/month for each CableCARD. Absolute highway robbery! Optimum (Cablevision), my previous cable provider only charged $2 per card. Comcast customers get their first card free of charge and second card at a subsidized cost if its for use in the Series3. Meanwhile Verizon customers with S3 are getting screwed over and now paying $10 per month, QUADRUPLE what a Comcast customer pays to operate an original Series3 OLED. What can be done about this? Aren't FCC rules and regulations in place to ensure cable companies don't engage in this kind of unethical price gauging aimed at discouraging use of third party hardware??
