    long time dish customer, recent price increase, looking for input...

    Look at a streaming service. I was long time customer, over 20 years, and decided to dump Dish because of the over priced programming and basically they offered far more stuff than I would ever need. PLUS, charging me for the use of equipment was a joke. If you are with a company for as long as...

    Cancelled Dish Today

    Read some of the responses to my comment and none have yet give me a compelling reason to stay with Dish. I get all the sports I want, LIVE. I sub to MLBtv each season. I am watching all the live college games I can handle. I don't watch the NFL for any reason. As far as having 250 channels and...

    Cancelled Dish Today

    Cancelled Dish after being with them for over 21 years because of the over inflated bill. 250 channels and I only watched less than 15. Boxed everything up to send back and now have a streaming service that gives me everything I want. I cut my bill about $80 a month. Will never come back unless...

    Anyone else getting bored with Sling?

    Just disconnected my Sling from my Hopper. Never really used and couldn't figure the whole big deal with it. Tossed it in a drawer to collect dust.

    Dish Protection Plan.... is my thinking wrong

    Thanks, seems I have wasted a lot of money over a long period. I don't mind paying the S&H if one of the units goes beserk.

    Dish Protection Plan.... is my thinking wrong

    Mine are leased, don't own any of the equipment. So basically I could cancel the PP since I haven't really used it in many years.

    Dish Protection Plan.... is my thinking wrong

    So the PP is for home service calls and not replacing defective units? I have had one visit in probably 10 years or more. So if my Joey or Hopper unit bit the dust they would replace it for shipping only?

    OTA question

    Okay, maybe down the road because I get local channels already and I don't record anything on those channels at all, nothing redeeming. I use the antenna as a back up when I lose signal on the dish so If I could get the dongle at a fair price I guess it would be something to play with. Thanks

    OTA question

    I have a roof antenna that works pretty darn good now. I just have to switch input signals on my TV and get what I need. So this doesn't really do anymore than what I have already?

    OTA question

    Never really thought about this until the other day I was perusing the menu and came across the app for OTA or something like that. When I opened it up it stated something to the effect I needed some USB dongle or something to use this. So what is it I need to get the OTA channels on the Hopper?

    Any Chance of Getting MLB Extra Innings Back?

    MLB.tv I have been using my Roku with great success to get my games. Doesn't matter if Dish puts an app on the Hopper or not. Don't need EI at all anymore

    When will it end?

    I agree with Scott that whatever my wife wants she gets it. I am away from home the majority of the month and it doesn't seem much of a cost to make her happy. I can't get cable so sat is my only choice and I have tried Direct and do not like their service. I have been with Dish for going on 17...

    Sling Issue

    Hopper with a sling adapter. Hardly ever connects and since I am not at home I can't reset my DSL, router or adapter. So what is the problem? I can access my DVR with my smartphone and I use a JetPack Internet for my laptop. I always have excellent connection with it and can surf with no...

    Sling Issue

    I bought this item last year thinking I would be able to access my DVR remotely. Since then I have been able to use it ONCE! Yes, I went through the setup and reconnected through my router and such with the sequence that everyone says to do. My question is this, why do you have to continue...
