Hey thanks guys,... I thought that was the case. Coming from DirecTV, they made it clear that in addition to $199+ up front for the HC DVR receiver, AND a monthly site fee to hook the unit up, they also forced you to pay $9.99/mo for HD programming. I think the day is almost upon us where HD programming is no longer a premium, but a standard. I just hope they don't get greedy and ruin this breath of fresh air. Thanks again the clearing that up for me.
