What does FREE HD DVR upgrade REALLY mean(?)


What does FREE HD DVR upgrade REALLY mean(?)

I'm sure I'm not the only one that knows FREE means nothing BUT free....
So, my question(s) is this~

1) Does FREE UPGRADE mean NEW contract?

2) I have 2 DVR's~ If I upgrade for FREE, do I need 2 receivers or one and if TWO, how UNfree would the 2nd be?

3) Does HD cost more? If so, on ONE or BOTH tv's?

4) Is this something I can do or do I have to PAY to have the installation done?
5) Will I need to upgrade the satellite dish also?

Thank you for any help.
I can understand typed written words MUCH more than double talk sales pitches.

You will resign a new contract and hd service is 10 $ a month as far as dish upgrade im going to say yes if you do not currently have hd

1. Yes, every time you upgrade one or more receivers, it triggers a new two year contract.

2. You need to call DirecTV and see what is included in the offer.

3. HD is $10 a month, regardless of how many receiver you have

4. Most likely, DirecTV would need to do the install, but most often, where there is a free offers, the installation is included at no cost
