    Hulu raising prices

    Even with the increase it’s still far less than I was paying Dish but still not thrilled about getting hit with an increase a few weeks after switching. Sent from my iPad using the SatelliteGuys app!

    fox sports dispute

    With no end to the blackout in sight I cancelled Dish after 17 years and switched to Hulu+Live TV. Dish offered me $40 per month off for a year but I passed. Dish would have still cost more than Hulu and no RSN. Sent from my iPad using the SatelliteGuys app!

    I get about 40 OTA channels. I live in a small rural town that is home to a retransmission tower. I believe Hulu+Live gets you authentication for some apps. Update: I can confirm that Hulu+Live gets you access to quite a few apps including ESPN and FoxSportsGo. Sent from my iPad using...

    Cord-cutting accelerates

    I just cut the cord after 17 years with Dish using a combination of OTA, Hulu+Live TV and Netflix. I’m saving a ton of money and I have my RSN which Dish hasn’t had for 3 months. Also got a free year of AppleTV+. Sent from my iPad using the SatelliteGuys app!

    Lousy Dish tech support

    The replacement H1 is working OK so far. I thought about asking him for a HWS but it was all I could do to get him to replace it. I didn’t want to push it. He had to run back to his house to get one.

    How long does it take for the EHD to "Spin Up?"

    My H1 does the same thing. I found that if I open the info screen for the show I want to watch and wait about 15 seconds then hit watch or resume it works on the first try.

    Lousy Dish tech support

    I have a Hopper 1 that for the last month has been restarting itself on average once per hour. The picture freezes for a couple minutes then the hopper restarts. I called tech support and got some foreign woman. All she would do is submit a report to their tech department which would be...

    U239 - HWS

    UI upgrade has RUINED Hopper 1 usability

    That worked. Thanks for the tip! Still debating about upgrading to H3s anyway just because of the lag. I thought it was ok at first but the longer I use it the more it bothers me. I don't mind the look of the CUI.
