I have two tivo premieres.
I previously had Comcast two years ago and did not pay for either cable card. I switched to FIOS, and I got the first free, and the second for $2.50. I just bought a new home and FIOS is not available in the area. So... I'm going back to comcast.
I was ordering a double play, digital preferred and performance internet. They want to charge me a $9.95 HD Service Fee. They also want to charge $9.95 for the second cable card. I complained, and they lowered it to $7.45. However, that is just the $2.50 set-top box discount I should get anyways.
So my questions are:
First, Do I need the HD service fee if I am not using their boxes? or is it required to pay that fee in order to receive HD channles on my tivo.
Second, Really???? $7.45 for a cable card! Should it be cheaper? Are they trying to snake me?
I searched the forums for answers... but I couldn't find anything that specifically answered my questions.
