I have MTS Ultimate TV, and I enjoy having the first STB for free and you only pay $5/month for an upgrade to a Whole Home PVR, and $3/month for an extra STB. I am looking at the other providers in Canada (cable and satellite), and I noticed how you can rent a box or buy it. For example, Bell Fibe TV's PVR is $20/month, or you can buy it for $249.50, I don't get this. I'm lucky that I have MTS because $20 dollars to rent a box is overkill for me, which is why we switched from Shaw. I wonder if it would be better to rent or buy a STB, and why providers do this? Is this some kind of money-grab or something? Any opinions?
