    I am moving into a new home and I know that Dish tells you just to leave your dish and they will come out and install a new one. How does this work? I imagine they charge to come re-install the new stuff. I think I heard there is a way to get it for free but I assume you have to sign another 1 year contract which I don't want to do. Does anyone know what the cost would be for install of 2 rooms in a new home?

    In the Dish Mover program you leave the stuff where it is now and take your receivers and remotes with you. When you go to your new home you call your local retailer (preferably the one you purchased your system from) to do the move for you. It costs $25.00 unless you are on credit card or checking account autopay. You must also sign a one year contract for AT60+locals. It covers up to six receivers installed as of recently.

    I am not sure if this is true or not but I heard that Dish Network is going to start charging for Dish Upgrades (and maybe Dish Movers too) starting next week and it may be $50.00. If someone on the boards knows anything about this then they can correct me or reply to my message. I asked a CSR and he said something about a $50.00 Dish'n It Up promotion starting next week for a 301, 510, 811, or 522 receiver but you cant believe everything that they say.

    if your not on CC- auto pay or don't sign up for it or if you don't sign another year contract for Top60, then it is $99

    BTW that $99 is for one receiver, $50 each additional one

    Did a Dish Mover to my new house in August 2004. Didn't pay a thing or commit to anything. They told me I did not even have to go the CC auto-pay route. I do not have cc auto pay, still write a check each month. I even went from one receiver to two so they had to do a little extra work. Of course they make an extra $5 a month off of the extra receiver hookup.

    I have had top 180 w/locals for about 5 years and have always payed my bill on time so maybe that took into account for something.

    I think it comes down to luck of the draw on CSR's when you call in.

    Someone must not have known what they were doing then if they didnt make you sign a commitment or didnt charge you the $25 fee for no CC autopay. You lucked out.

    I just did the Dish Mover and was not told I needed to sign a 12 month contract (although I read otherwise). So perhaps I am lucky. I did this two weeks ago and the installer came out, installed a dish outside on the roof of a well (somehow it had the best reception) and ran direct burial cables to my receivers (two receivers, one is a dual tuner though so 3 lines). Did not get any charge at all, HOWEVER, I did have to sign up for autopay which is fine with me. Also, they left the other dishes in my previous location which is good since I was worried I might have to have payed to have them removed.

    The installer didn't trench the cables but that is fine since they usually charge extra for that. Regardless, I did feel that I should tip the guy ($20) since that is the only thing I paid for moving.

    This right here is all that is needed, for some people to say that they didnt have to pay anything or didnt have to sign a contract to get others to expect the same when an installer comes out to do the upgrade that may need that signature to submit to Dish Network in order to get reimbursed for it.
