What city/province do you live in?

As that would be unexpected if you live in Quebec/Ontario.

As soon as I received my ATV this past Tuesday, I went into my Directv account the following morning to remove the recurring monthly fee that was to take place May 16th.

Last night, I received the following offer to discount the service by $25/month (making the base $35 plan $10/month for the 3 months beginning May 16th). I'm tempted to accept it. Though the only channel I really watch on Directv is AMC, so that I can watch "The Walking Dead" live as it airs for everyone else. I just don't know if paying even $10/month is worth it.

I’m waiting for this offer to appear as I did the same. For $10 a month I would say it’s great value for me at least...

On another note I used a different mail forwarding service (Planet Express). I was in a bit of a rush to get my ATV. It’s due to arrive today via DHL express. The original ship date from DirecTV was Feb 21, so pretty speedy overall. Although I did get hit with customs. I figured I would since DHL is notorious for it ($105 declared value).

That sucks, I’m sorry you had to pay customs. Do you mind sharing how much you had to pay cutoms?

so i checked my cc and i was billed 135.56cdn! that sounds right? also had to pay around 10cdn via paypal for shipping to mymallbox
so 145$cdn no including the 32$usd cb via befrugal ..i prolly won't even use the appleTV much as i don't think i can JB without big hassles, i don't have a mac , was really hoping it came with a usb cable/port but i guess apple didn't want it to be JB like the earlier gens

Yup. DHL/UPS are notorious for custom fees. That sucks.

$37.52 CAD - unsure how it’s broken down as duties, taxes, and/or fees tho.

Ooops, I didn't see that part. I think default was $10...hopefully none of us get in trouble for underestimating the value of the AppleTV

Pretty sure the "worst" they could do would be take the retail price of the Apple TV and make you pay duties and taxes on that. I mean I guess they could hold your package for a while too, but they aren't going to send it back, they want the revenue.

For someone still buying it, there's one more trick to avoid state taxes!
The zip code trick for a friend of mine, placed him on Santa Monica, CA 90401! On DIRECTV billing he put like that and was charged an extra $10.50 for taxes! I've changed just the state to KY (Kentucky) and he was not charged and the payment accepted! That means that as long the zip code trick gives you a valid 5 digits, you can chose an exempt state and avoid the extra $10.50 Smiling Face With SunglassesSmiling Face With SunglassesSmiling Face With Sunglasses

Can anyone confirm you can permenantly install kodi on this after jailbreak? Looking online, the only thing I found said it worked on 4 so it MIGHT work on 4K, but nothing else.

You don't even need to jailbreak to install Kodi!
Buy a Apple developer account for $99 a year and install Kodi in as much as 100 Apple TV boxes, or buy one of the sideloads Kodi apps for $25-$40!
