Dish "Protection Plan"
It is really nice for dish to be able to collect this. I am just leasing the receivers, yet I have to pay to maintain them. Normally when you rent or lease something, the "owner" has to pay to maintain or repair. What exactly am I getting by paying the extra $6.00 per month that dish shouldn't be required on leased equipment to provide anyway?

Plan covers tech visits which include repointing dish, wires, connections and shipping fees on replaced receivers.
I chose to pass on it. What it boiled down to for me is $72 per year so if my receiver goes bad they will pick it up instead of me paying to ship it to them. I like to live on the edge.
You lease a car or rental equipment, and see what happens when you try to return it needing repairs.
We lease a fleet of vehicles. Guess who pays a fee up front, and for all maintenance and repairs?
