OH No You don't Own them, you lease them. The per box charge after the first one is a bit less than cable, but if you leave DTV, you have to return them or be billed a rather hefty fee. You also are tied into a 2 year commitment with DTV. I have them only because of NFL and now MLB :-(. I did however also keep cable as a backup. When it rains hard you will lose your signal for a bit. Both have their advantages. DTV is less monthly but cable offers on-demand and more movie channels. DTV offers sports lovers what they MUST have. Football and Baseball, and you can bet they will go after The NBA and Hockey next.
