per month, per unit. That is
a common expense and you
must pay it even if you do not
take the box. So, for the extra
programming alone, it is worth
taking the new box.
Q: How will the people who

A: Each account will be
looked at individually. The
new box being distributed is
a Standard Definition box; it
will not support High Defini-

an HD box, you will keep that
box and an adjustment in cost
will be made for the value of
the new box, which you will
not be receiving. That said, the
new box can be programmed
for any services on your cur-
rent box (other than HD) and
that is what will be done. Once
that is done, you will receive
an adjustment in cost reflect-
ing the fact that the new box
comes free of extra charge in
