I think this promo they gave you was
their way of compensating you. In the early stages of Ultimate TV, most people only got 1 year of free pvr/2 STB rental/HD Basic. Then, for a while they were offering lifetime PVR +some other stuff, but they no longer offer this one!
I think this 2 year promo is only for existing Classic HD customers switching to Ultimate TV. And I think in turn, they want the old box back. I've done some installs where the work order says to recover the old box.
So considering that the current promos that are only for 3 months, you probably got a decent deal. I don't know for sure if it fully compensates you for what you paid for the Classic HD RG3000, though. You said you paid $349, did they also charge you the $99 install fee back then? If so, that's $448.
I attempted to calculate it below (someone correct me if I'm wrong) so it appears they've waived $462 for the first 2 years, according to your promo.
PVR: $5/month x 24 month = $120
STB rentals: $3/month x 3 STB x 24 months = $216
1 STB free 6 months = -$18
HD Starter: $6/month x 24 months = $144
So it seems like it works out, eh?
That's the way I see it, but I could be out to lunch. I don't even know why they ever offered Classic HD. All that extra cost and work to install it for only 8 channels? Yeesh. I'm surprised anyone took it (no offense). They never really promoted it, either, probably because it was a pain to install and was very limited (I don't even think VDSL had enough bandwidth to add more channels in the future). I'm surprised it's still in the brochures, too.
