    I found a true bargain priced new in box Directv Ultimatetv receiver and am seriously considering buying it and reselling it online.

    I am a current Directv customer, and own an Ultimatetv receiver, but considering the price some folks are paying for these discontinued receivers, I am really tempted to buy the new one then turn around and sell.

    Question is, am I tied to that receiver and I am the only one who can activate the access card within the 30 day period or be penalized, or since I am a current customer, is that stipulation and penelty fee "waived"?

    What do I tell the store I buy it from? "Hey I'm a customer, and just replacing an old receiver" or "It's a gift, I won't be activating it"??

    If I sell it, do I have to tell the buyer he/she has X number of days to activate? Most of the new ones I see auctioned off are saying "no activation/contract required".

    I just don't want to get socked with the $150 penelty DTV throws at you when you sign the "contract" at the local store.

    Any thoughts??

    Thanks

    I agree with Ryan looks like too much possible trouble to be worth small amount of money you could make. What you could do is work as a consultant (for a small fee)explaining to people how they can get this "Great deal". [​IMG]
