    This thread is no longer needed. But for those who wondered: it is leased. The price? A one time lease fee of $199* + a monthly fee. *This fee may be charged again if the machine ever fails due to any failure, according to the DirecTV rep that I addressed. That $199 fee again is to replace a failed machine. Some customers may qualify for a "free" lease, if they are credit worthy.

    I guess the next question is if they still charge the replacement fee if the subscriber has the DTV protection plan or similar? One would think they would not charge in that case.
