Boston Comcast HD Technology Fee

Hey all,

For those of you that use a Tivo with comcast in downtown Boston, do you pay the HD Tech fee to get access to HD channels? I was just told by Comcast that I wouldn't need to pay the fees but I find that hard to believe if I want full HD access. Just curious if anyone has had experience with this.

Being that I want to put a Tivo Mini in my other room I think I should at least escape the "addl HD outlets" fee.

Thanks!

As far as I can tell, there is no way the cable company would know if you have mini's hooked up in your house because you are using tuners from the cable card in your TiVo. If it's hooked up via ethernet it goes through network, not using a cable further proving they cannot see if you are pushing a tuner to another device.

The HD technology fee is *supposed to* apply only if you have Comcast HD equipment; but we all know how consistent Comcast billing is across regiongs. That said, I do not have any Comcast HD equipment, am in the Boston area, and do NOT pay an HD technology fee.
