Can I replace the TurboHD dish with a 1000+ that I have?
Recently I moved to a new location. I used to have HD & international programming, so I have a 1000+ dish which can pick up 110, 119, 118.7 & 129 (with DPP44 switch). I've fulfilled my 18 months contract already.
I did the $6 service plan + $15 technician visit to move to the new address. DISH wanted to charge $100 for installing a DISH with international programming support, I decided not to pay $100 and went with the 110/119/129 TurboHD dish.
After 1 month, I kind of want to get international programming back and called DISH, they still want the $100 for international dish.
Question is: Since DISH network never took back the 1000+ & DPP44, can I replace the turboHD with 1000+ myself?
The technician said I need matching supporting arms/brackets, etc. The 1000+ was installed with a tripod on bacolny before, now the turboHD dish is installed on the side of the wall. Anyone knows if I can replace it myself and then call DISH to add international programming (just told them I have a 1000+ dish myself).

If you mean the TurboHD dish is the old Super Dish, which is bigger than current dish you would need extra support and brackets. Check out SatelliteGuys store, they may have what you need.

Sure as long as you can get it mounted and dialed in. You'd just need to call E* and tell them you have the antenna installed and need the int'l programming.

It's not the old superDISH.
It has "turboHD" logo on it. I don't know if it's 1000, 1000.2, etc. It's picking up 110/119/129, no switch is needed for the installation (1 722 receiver).
It's a brand new one when technician installed it.
