How do I get and HD DVR Receiver for DirectTV

by psugjy / March 26, 2005 1:46 AM PST

I am currently a DirectTV customer and I went out and bought a HDTV. Now in order for me to get an HD DVR receiver, DirectTV quoted my about $800.00 for one. Is there another way of getting one?

When HDTV is more common, the price comes down.

As it stands now, the early adopters are paying.

why call directv

The beauty of dealing with satellite as opposed to cable is that you can buy directv products online and in retail outfits that sell them. The hd- dvr combo is going to be more money because of the dvr, but check around you might find it cheaper.
