They will want $50 for the new LNB.
However, if you upgrade a receiver you can get the new LNB installed for no extra cost. You will likely need to go through Customer Relations for this as opposed to a regular CSR. In my case, I upgraded about 2 months ago with the rationale of moving to the new satellite (documented in my account), but I really just wanted another PVR. So I called back recently to ask about the new LNB. They wanted $50 regardless of previous upgrade. Then I remembered I should have asked for Customer Relations. Called back again and a new LNB is one the way, no charge.
First time I called they wanted 50 bucks for an new 600,plus anther 50 bucks for the LNB,
When I said I would think about switching TO Telus optic and get the free HD PVR and two HD receivers ,plus get 25 meg Internet and a 40 LED flat screen(there current offer)
For the same price I'm paying Shaw now.
He just well that's what our offer is take it or leave it.
I phoned back about 5 mins later and got a much better Rep.
He said the 600 receiver and XLNB would only cost 50 bucks installed.
I work in the shipping business and were putting through hundreds of the Telus LED TVs for there new customer TV offer.
Shaw Direct needs to get there act together ,there losing tons of customers .
I still might switch ,if Shaw does to give a better deal to its loyal customers with the new channels.
