    AT&T U-verse has been doing this since at least 2008. You need only to drop off the equipment at a UPS Store. They gave you a receipt and after you're gone they pack it up and ship it out. Not certain where the cost savings comes from, but there must be one...

    I wish Dish Network would do the same.

    I wish cable television wasn't so expensive and that we could choose which channels we wish to subscribe to (a la carte).

    So, does does this mean no call tags to NR-3?

    Comcast generally sends boxes that are unmarked empty, much like Dish Network, with a label and tape inside. Unlike Dish, they generally don't have us do call tags and leave it to the customer to make sure we somehow get it.

    You kinda can. You can ditch your cable tv subscription and just pay for your cable internet. You can get most content online now. Also just recently in the news CBS became the first major cable network to offer a direct to consumers streaming service for like five bucks a month bypassing the cable companies. HBO just made an announcement that they will start offering a stand alone streaming option directly to consumers too starting next year.
    There is a lot of good info here:
