Chapter 28. Digital Video Recording: TiV... > Features and Considerations

Features and Considerations

There are typically two costs involved when purchasing a DVR. First, you have the one-time cost of the unit itself. These usually range $199 to $599, depending upon the manufacturer and the amount of hard disk storage capacity you decide to purchase. Second, there is the monthly service fee, which allows you to receive the daily programming updates over your phone line in order for the service to be highly accurate when searching for your preferred content.

These daily phone calls are made automatically by the DVR and do not interfere with your incoming or outgoing calls. You can use a standard phone line, and most DVRs come with an RJ-11 phone jack for easy connection. Monthly service fees are usually around $12.95 per month.
