How about DVR and set up box? Are they free?
of course not.

You get a set-top-box capable of standard-definition TV for free.

Every HD set-top-box is $10 a month EXTRA. So if you want to actually watch HDTV, this deal is actually $90/month (plus tax and other mandated fees).

It's a fracking joke that they don't include an HD set-top-box as part of the monthly service price for HD service. They include a router capable of dealing with FIOS speeds with the internet service, but then they don't include a way to fully utilize your TV service.

A DVR set-top-box is even more expensive. I think $17 a month.

Prices for the equipment rental vary regionally.

And by the way, even with a 2 year contract, the price of set-top-boxes will probably increase. Your contract only locks in the price for the services, not the rental equipment.
