It is either a geographic thing or you are mistaken. I can offer the Digital Variety package for a discounted rate. The customer pays only that amount (plus taxes) if they have 1 box. It's a digital package so it makes no sense to charge for the first digital box. If they have more, there is generally a fee per box but there is another promo for up to 2 additional free boxes. If you have a DVR as your main box (which you should for billing purposes), you only pay for the actual DVR and not the box as well.
