Used hd receivers

Hi


I have bought a hd pvr from London drugs for $59.99 however I have 3 tvs. 


So I was thinking of buying 2 used hd receivers from my neighbor. I know London Drugs has them on sale for $39.99 each however he is offering $20 for both. Would telus activate them? 


Thanks Jason

That is true for the box that you purchase from London Drugs, I can't say the same for the used boxes, but if a tech is coming out to install all of them at the same time, I don't see any reason why they would charge you.


And if they said it, then we shall go with that, and assume it's waived.


Hope this helps.

If your connection supports additional boxes, yes it is possible to get them activated. Make sure they are connected correctly or they may send an installer out and there could be a possible cost from that.

One PVR can run 4 TV's at my place. One hard wired and 3 on the wireless boxes.


Are we talking about the same Optik PVR?

Telus would activate the old hd receivers. There may be a charge for installing them at your place, your best bet is to call customer service and confirm with them.

When I signed up they said they would waive the $100 installation fee

If you talk really nice to the tech they tend to swap out the outdated receivers with the new ones for FREE, PVR and HD receivers.
