    Thumbs down How much is the Hopper upgrade costing you?

    I've been a customer for 3 years. I called a month ago and was told a Hopper a 2 Joeys would run me $199 total to upgrade.

    Today I contact Dish on twitter, they first tell me its $700 to upgrade to 1H + 2J... And then later tell me that the retail price is actually $647.



    My friend who has the same Dish setup as me, got it roughly the same time I did, and he's only paying $99 for 1H + 2J... Insane.

    Actually thinking about switching to those-other-guys....

    CSR's are just getting up to speed on Hopper and Joey, up until today for many of them they didn't even know the Hopper existed.

    I would try again later today and you will find the information is more accurate from all the CSR's.

    Sometimes patience is a vertue.

    I was told $99 but I had to sign a 2 year contract with no incentives. Holding off because of the contract.

    What a mess. At least they didn't quote you $53 above full retail price.

    I am new to the forum and signed up just to reply to this thread. Very frustrated right now. I called them this morning and was quoted the same 647.00 for 1 hopper 2 joeys. When asked if they wanted to loose a loyal (over 5 years) customer I was told there was nothing they could do. After hanging up I entered a chat and got the same response. Also asked what prevented me from caneclling and signing up again and was informed that any request for service within 6 months would be treated as a reconnect and the fees assesed. To add insult to injury I told the CSR that I would be re-evaluating my choice in entertainment providers, and recieved a response that Dish offers best in class service and support, and the latest in technology that can not be matched by C**LE. I said, yes but they dont charge me 650 for the latest technology. As a professional in the audiovisual industry I find it astounding that current subscribers are getting the short end of the stick.
