    Going from a 722K to a Hopper

    Does anyone know if they will change anything on the dish? Or if I will need a new dish?

    Going from a 722K to a Hopper

    Thanks again for the tip. It worked like you said. I called and they waived the fee. I've been a Customer since 1998.

    Going from a 722K to a Hopper

    Thanks. It looks like I’m scheduled for a hopper with sling. And they say the 3 is $150 more does that sound right?

    Going from a 722K to a Hopper

    Hello I’m finally ready to make the move from a 722K to a Hopper. I have some questions. What’s the newest Hopper so I can make sure the installer isn’t giving me some old equipment? How to I tell what I’m getting? Also, is there a thread or website on how to use this thing? I’m not sure...

    FCC wants to do away with all "set top boxes"?

    Have you seen this? http://money.cnn.com/2016/09/08/technology/fcc-set-top-proposal/index.html Basically the FCC would require all providers like Dish to make their content available without a dedicated box. All programming would be available via an app. So no more Hoppers?

    DISH Introduces Flex Pack

    That's exactly what I had to do - call or ask to speak to the loyalty Dept. They didn't give me any problems about the $5 discount.

    DISH Introduces Flex Pack

    You should be able to do that, if I understand correctly. Just call Dish and swap cards. Since you didn't have all G4 cards on your account, the Flex pack may not show up online right away. When I looked online it didn't show up until I switched cards. Then you could just call again or chat...

    DISH Introduces Flex Pack

    Without reading 19 pages - can existing customers get the Flex plan for $29.95 with autopay and two year contract? Has anyone actually done this? UPDATE: Success! It can be done. I just did it and am saving almost $30 a month! You have to call or get transferred to the retention dept...

    I need a new Smart Card for Flex???

    That's how mine came too. I plan to wait until the end of my service period to switch - at the end of the month. I'm still looking for down sides to Flex and I don't see any so far. I don't watch sport or news much and don't have children at home so I'm pretty stoked about dropping those...

    I need a new Smart Card for Flex???

    So no real difference, just a different color? According to the chat I can save about $30 a month and not lose any channels I care about. So this seems like a no brainer. (Going from AT120 + HBO to Flex + Locals + HBO) (I can't get reliable locals OTA)

    I just did a chat and was told I need a new Smart Card for my 311 before I can get the new Flex package. Does anyone know why I would need a new smart card?
