Not to veer off topic, but, from an installation standpoint Directv is much easier to install in regards to los in this dma. While there are many EA markets on the east coast, there are also many WA areas. Here the 129 bird comes in on a 24 degree elevation & Directv 101 is 44, that is huge when trying to find a los & all the difference in the world between getting a signal or not. From Claudes standpoint D* is much less risk also because he's only responsible for the equipment for 3 days vs E* which is 180 days, that is huge when footing the bill equipment wise for a complete stranger who may or may not keep the service for the required term.
In regards to the op's question, it is my opinion that if you're an employee of a communications company that all services provided should be part of your benefits excluding ppv. Cable companies have been doing this for their people for years & most of them have stock prices well under dish except for a few. My own personal opinions of dish have seriously diminished over the years even though I am still a customer. They definitely could change things for the better, if not for customers, at least for their own people.

I've quit telling people to go to Dishstore. Why should I send someone to Claude when he hasn't had anything good to say about the stuff he sells for a couple months at least and says it so publicly...

Actually he is telling the guy some is exactly like what I had when I was an asst mgr for Blockbuster, only difference is it now E* he has to have instead of D*. I got several perks out of it as I subbed more people on to D* as I was an asst mgr that traveled tween on 7 stores in my district and picked up subs thru out the area. Was about to be offered my own store in the district when I was able to go back to school and get my degree by "getting fired". The best job I got fired from indirectly on purpose. Anyway sounds almost identical to BB's previous program.

LOS should be a problem for his location as it will be EA. He has a WV address. So they will be putting up an EA dish hit 72 then peak the skew for 61.5 & 77 and done. WV LIL are EA.

Are equipment costs also discounted or waived?
What type of receivers are allowed?
Is a contract required?
Is installation free?
