I'm curious what each of you are paying for your CableCARDS. Brighthouse in Tampa is charging $3.95 per card. This seems like a lot considering a dual-tuner HD box is $6.95.
I am in the next town over (Milpitas), and I got them to drop the $7 charge, which is listed in the price list they sent me as an equipment charge for their HD set-top box (which I don't have), not a charge for HD programming.yunlin12 said:San Jose CA Comcast, $1.79 for dual cable card charge,$7 for HDTV service, total $8.79 for 2 cards.

http://www.comcast.com/customers/faq/FaqDetails.ashx?ID=4156Comcast's pricing policy provides your first CableCARD for free. This applies to TVs and the TiVo Series 3 HD set-top box. Any additional CableCARDs that are required on the same outlet will be subject to a nominal charge. No additional cards are required for the TV so there is not a charge.
I'm not being charged the 0.95 additional outlet fee at Brighthouse Networks in Tampa.windracer said:Brighthouse Networks in St. Pete, FL: $3.95/card plus $0.95 additional outlet fee.
They used to be $2.95 but they raised it a dollar back in January.
Interesting. I called to complain a while back and they told me the first digital "outlet" is free (I guess that's the first CableCARD) but every additional "outlet" is $0.95. Seems like a scam to me.sbiller said:I'm not being charged the 0.95 additional outlet fee at Brighthouse Networks in Tampa
Unfortunately, quoting the web information cuts nothing at the local office. They charge whatever suits them at the moment.jrm01 said:From Comcast web site concerning Tivo:
