Outrageous CHARGES for DTA boxes that are UNNECESSARY!!

Comcast charges $6 per MONTH for these ridiculous DTA boxes attached to HD TVs. There is no reason for these boxes. They are SCREWING the public by charging $72/yr for EACH one of these boxes. I have a cabin in another location in Minnesota. It is serviced by local company called Arvig Communications. They DO NOT require "boxes" when connected to HD TVs. Comcast states that consumers need these boxes, when they DO NOT. It is plain and simple just a method to charge $72 extra per year for a bogus piece of equipment.
