    Dish network cancellation fees

    So I switched from Directv to Dish Network 9 months ago. And I am not very happy with my decision at all. Part of it is because of Dish and part of it is because I didn't do my proper research. Anyway, that's neither here nor there.



    I received a letter in the mail from Directv that if I switched back they would pay my cancellation fees up to 200 dollars. So I thought might as well call into Dish and see just what my fee would be. They told me that an early termination for my account would be 420 dollars for my AT200 package, and because I signed up for HD free for life, another 240 dollars would be tacked onto that! So I would be looking at almost 700 dollars to cancel early! Why so ridiculously high? I was told when I signed up that it would be prorated to approximately 17 dollars a month per month left on my contract!

    I am extremely mad at Dish now because I feel I was lied to about the terms of my contract. If these termination numbers are correct, I will stick out the contract, but once it's done, I'm gone and Dish will never see my business again!

    Call and ask again, or better yet, do a chat. It should be what the monthly termination was at the time multiplied by the the number of months left on your contract. That extra HD for life sounds completely off.

    The HD term fee is off. I read it as $10 for each month you had left on contract...so it would be $150 or so. But you think if he started with it there should only be one cancel fee....but its Dish so anything is possible
