Equipment Charges


I just purchased from Amazon a Dish Tailgater and 211k reciever for used while traveling in my RV.  I recieved the equipment today and got online with Dish to set up my account.  I did not have a Dish account or any of their equipment at my home as I have cable service.  I wanted to set up a Pay-As-You-Go account with the Flex programming package.  After all of the sign up info I was informed that there would be a $7.00 Reciever fee.  Previous chats (which I saved) mention various taxes but never a "receiver" fee.  


Sorry, but this kind of sat sour with me like it was being sneaked into the bill at the last second.  Does anyone who owns their equipment get charged this?

Since there is no monthly lease fees, the fees for purchased and owned equipment are the same. I have not seen how things work with it, but have seen that there is a non DVR fee if you do not have a DVR.
