Activating Dish in Canada
Can anyone recommend a company that I can go thru to activate and register my Dish Network, even though I live in the Toronto area. It is/was activated with Dish and I was being charged via my credit card but went down yesterday. Looking to change providers, not impressed with the one I have, bad customer service. Thanks very much.
P.S.; wife and in-laws are Chinese and Dish has the best mainland package, wish BEV or any other Canadian provider offered a similar service.

Try posting on Craigslist. All you need is someone to take the mail addressed to you and throw it out - rather than return it to the sender. As you know, you can set up the account to be pd. automatically by credit card.
Your only problem will be calling DISH when you need to unless they have a non toll free number you can call. BEV has a 416 number I can call from the states.
PM me for further info.
You can call Dish 1-800 from Canada...
Just use an AT&T phone card from WalMart. It is not cheap (about 20 cents a minute) but it is alot easier than getting my sister in law in Tampa do make a 3 way call. Be prepared - if you own your equipment, they will want a social security number to do a credit check. In a country like the US, I find it hard to believe that they so willingly give up such personal information. In Canada, you have the right to turn down requests for this info.
WMS Activations does E* and D* too. Their site is
You gotta be kidding. $500 for an H20 receiver? These are free in the US after rebate. Why not just drop down to your local Costco in the US and pick one up?
