Will purchasing my own DVR lower my bill?

I'm in the situation where I need to get my bill down in order to continue being a Dish customer. I've really enjoyed the service over the years and would prefer to keep it over using something else. I'm currently paying $7 per month for DVR Service and $8 per month for a Protection Plan. I have a VIP 722k that I lease.

If I purchase my own DVR, would those two charges be removed? Ideally I would like to pay for the channel package and nothing extra. I didn't know if there were lingering charges even if I own my own equipment.

Thanks in advance!

The DVR service fee would still be charged since it provides you with all the features of the DVR. The Protection Plan is optional and you do not have to subscribe to it. Can you send a private message with your account/phone number and 4 digit PIN so I can review your account?

Very little in lower costs, but you eliminate the 2 year commitment issue.
