Here’s a little screen snip from the Eastlink DVR page:
I naively assumed that when I clicked on the big Order Now button, and filled out this online order form, I was actually placing my order.
It appears that this “order online” exercise is simply a cleverly disguised hoax, however, as almost 48 hours later I received back this email:
Thank you for your email.
We contacted you regarding the dvr installation. The monthy fee for the dvr rental is 14.95 plus tax and the installation would be 19.95 plus tax if you were to order before November 31. To get more information on appt. times or other services please call our customer care line at 367-2800 or 1-888-345-1111 and we will be happy to assist you.
So to actually place an order, I had to get on the phone, wade through the telephone tree, give over my identifying information (phone, name, address), and describe what I wanted to order. At least in theory I have now “ordered.” We’ll see what happens next.
