Cable Box vs. DTA

On my bill I notice I am being charged $5.00 for the Cable box and remote.  I am being charged $5.99 per month for each DTA.  Can I replace a DTA with a Cable box and remote and save myself the 99 cents per month and also increase my channel availibities?

Weird. I think it's because Comcast is in the midst of rearranging things and how they charge for devices.

Good question.   The answer is maybe-yes temporarily but you will probably find that the cost of the larger-than-DTA settop box has increased too.    Alternatively if you lower your TV package to be "choice" aka "limited basic" then the first two HD-DTA will have zero rental charge and a third would be 50 cents per month.

Comcast should really get a award for "Creative Writing" for their bills.
