The units that Circuit City sell are "Owned" not Leased. You own them.

Circuit City as well as others still sell Directv/Tivo units. They occasionly find some in the back room somewhere. The R10's also sometimes come up.

Lazlo123:

You purchase and own the unit correct. With Directv you pay a flat $5.99 a Month DVR Fee (included in some Base Packages) no matter how many DVR units you have: 1, 2 10 etc.

You do not pay a lease fee. You pay a Receiver fee (First unit on account Free, each additional Unit is $4.99 a Month). This is known as the Mirror Fee.

There are NO Tivo fees at all with Directv/Tivo units. In other words: NO SUBSCRIPTION fees.

So basically: $5.99 a Month DVR Fee.
First unit: Free
Each additonal Unit: $4.99 a Month.

One unit would cost you: $5.99 a Month. Two units would cost: $10.98 a Month. etc etc.

Interesting when Directv stopped leasing Directv/Tivo units some time back.

Also, if you look at the Directv units they have "leased" in the Title. This unit does not have that. Maybe call Circuit City and ask them.

From the product info page.
http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Sams...89307/catOid/-12877/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do

DIRECTV monthly lease fee of $4.99. Each additional receiver applies

Note: DIRECTV services are sold separately. A maximum of six (6) receivers may be leased per year, but not more than two (2) DVR receivers, two (2) HD receivers and one (1) HD DVR receiver may by leased in a given year. On approved credit. A programming commitment is required and sold separately.
This is the standard fee be it you Own your units or Lease them.

We still need to confirm if the units are Owned or leased.

What a Total Rip Off!

You pay $79.00 for a Leased unit, and a 2 Year Commitment.

You cannot modify it in any way, as you have to give it back, or pay a large amount for keeping it when you fail to return it.

Why not just go on EBay and look around. You can find these units on there Brand New for alot less. And can do whatever you want with it since you own it, and no long term commitment.
