Too Good to Be True? A Hopper in My Future?
I called DISH today to complain about losing the local NBC channel out of Indy due to a contact dispute with Dispatch Broadcasting. To make a long story longer, the young lady from India who could not understand me and versa vicea, connects me to the cancellation department (I did mention Direct TV had the channel) and I get a sweet southern lady. She not only gives me $30 off my bill for 6 months, but says I can get a Hopper and 2 Joeys and installation for free if I sign a 2-year contract and add tech service for $7/mo. Just a couple months ago, "Bruce" from India told me it would be about $300 to get a Hopper and 2 Joeys? Am I being taken for a ride, or am I missing something? The lady is going to call me tomorrow to see if I want to go with the Hopper, as I told her I had to consult with some friends first. My current 622s are 6 and 7 years old, but working fine, and I have not been under contract for more than a year. Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. BTW, will they have to run more/new cables to connect the Hopper and Joeys, and do I need to connect the Hopper to Ethernet, WiFi, or Phone?

I'd say "Go for it!" That's assuming only 3 sat tuners and 0 OTA tuners on the Hopper are enough for your needs.

loyalty dept is basically just matching the new customer offer of the first hopper free then throwing in some extra discount to stay. Others have gotten similar offers recently.
Internet and phone connections are optional. Not required for operation.

They may run new cables between the hopper and the node to make sure that the cable is 3Ghz RG6. Depends on the tech and the existing cable.

I am really happy with the Hopper and with the addition of OTA shortly this is one of the best DVRs on the market.Scott
