Recievers being replaced

It was brought to my attention some time ago that sometime after Jan. 1 2019 DirecTV would not support the older receivers.  Are they going to replace them with the new version?

Don't ask for an upgrade at all, you need an mpeg2 swap, NOT an upgrade there's a big difference.

The last of the MPEG-2 feeds turn off April 2019. They have been contacting people about a complimentary swap of equipment, which is different from a traditional optional upgrade.

 

What are the models of each box you have now?
