    I Have a few questions about Dish's Flex TV program. They are:

    Is the welcome pack package a one time thing or is there the possibilty to downgrade back to it if it choose a different package later on? (ex. Welcome Package -> Dish America -> back to the welcome package). Is that allowed?

    Is it possible to have more then one physical receiver on the plan or is it limited to one receiver(up to 2 tuners)?

    If I choose the welcome package, will the free 3 months of premium channels be in SD or HD?

    How does the $99 HD for life work?


    I miss watching the History channel since the FTA version disappeared off of 101w :)

    Thanks,

    You just pay a one time fee of $99 and you will have free HD for as long as you remain subscribed to Dish. You will save $120 plus tax a year for HD programming in the long run. It's a great benefit. :)

    if you have the flex plan most likely you will have to pay extra $$$ for HD equipment. Flex plans come with SD equipment

    Unless something has changed, this is incorrect.

    I signed up on Flex almost 2 yrs ago and activated with a 211k HD receiver.

    Welcome Pack you cannot get the HD version of the channels. Only HD allowed is locals (if in HD) and any alacarte programming you add that has a HD fee
