    No Starz offer with Dish anymore?

    Just tried to cancel my full-priced Starz movie pack subscription and it offered me $5/month for 3 months to not cancel. I took the offer. Not sure if I had went ahead and canceled if an offer would have shown up in my “offers” area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dish Anywhere & Firestick issues

    Is the Dish Anywhere app on the FireTV’s now working? They did a major upgrade a number of months ago which tanked the picture quality and resulted in a lot app lockups (spinners of death). I stopped using it because it was so bad. I went back in last week to see if they fixed it but it still...

    No more discounts on Starz?

    I manage my elderly parents Dish account for them which has Starz, Showtime, and the Dish Movie package. All of the discounts for them had expired so I tried to re-up them on Saturday by canceling them. I was only offered a discount for Showtime. Neither the Dish Movie package nor Starz offered...

    Basic technical question

    I’ve been wondering what happened to the repeaters. I recall something about getting rid of them or drastically reducing them. Is there a recent map showing them. The only I could find is quite old. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dish anywhere won’t stream in HD

    That’s great to hear. Can’t wait. I’ll be keeping an eye out for it. Thanks…

    Dish Anywhere on Firetv Buffering

    The updated version of the DishAnywhere app is terrible. Endless buffer and poor picture quality. The previous version was pretty good. Too bad.

    PAC-12 Network Suing Dish

    We still have Dish, but dropped down to the cheapest package they offer and added FuboTV for our sports when they dropped our RSN.

    PAC-12 Network Suing Dish

    I’ve had Dish for 25 years (so not an “anti-Dish” guy) and this is just more Dish shenanigans. Is there anyone left they haven’t had a dispute with of one nature or another. I shake my head at this one.

    Dish anywhere won’t stream in HD

    Dish did a major upgrade to the app on streaming devices a short while ago. With the new upgrade has come a major degradation in picture quality. Now, it can take several minutes for it to straighten itself out to HD quality and even then it’s not as good as it was. It also often hangs if you...

    MGM No Longer Available

    Does anyone know if it will show up as a “channel” on Prime or will the content just be featured in with the other Prime movies?

    Hopper Plus Available?

    Is the Hopper Plus widely available now? How much does it cost to add to our existing Hopper 3?

    I love Dish but can no longer justify it.

    That would be a good idea. SlingTV isn’t a bad way to go and is generally cheaper than many other options. One thing I really like about Dish is all of the flexibility it offers you to shave $$ off your bill. Locals are optional, the Dish Anywhere app on FireTV allows you to cut Joeys, and the...

    I love Dish but can no longer justify it.

    I agree. I tried Slingtv for a few years but the prices on it and all of the streaming services keep rising. They’ll soon catch up to the cost of Dish. That’s why I think Dish’s hardware charges are where they’ll have problems and squeezed. I already own streaming devices so it’s no cost for me...

    I love Dish but can no longer justify it.

    I’m in the same boat. Love Dish (been with them since 1999) and the Hopper but the equipment fees are hurting them. We are trying out Fubo on the side to see if we like it. The dropping of Root Sports pushed us into looking at options.

    Flex Pack Options

    I’m trying out the flex pack. A couple of questions: 1) I’ve read that add-on “channel” packs can be added/removed without penalty and are prorated for the time you had it. Is that still true and does it apply to all add-on packages. There was a comment made a year ago on some other post that...

    ROOT SPORTS, fuboTV Announce Distribution Agreement

    We’re trying out Fubo for 3 months mostly to get Root Sports which Dish dropped. But the picture quality is not particularly good. Wondering if others have experienced the same thing.

    Returning Joey We Don’t Use Anymore

    That helps. It’s a leased Joey 2.0. I don’t see anything standout online for deactivating it so I’m guessing I’ll need to call. How does the return process work? Also, if I want to get another Joey in the future, how much is it costing now to do that? Would a technician have to come out to for...

    Returning Joey We Don’t Use Anymore

    I have a wired Joey in a room we don’t use anymore and was thinking of saving myself $7/month by “deactivating” it. Can I deactivate it online? I seem to recall paying Dish $50 for it. If true, is it mine to keep or do I need to return it? I don’t know if that was an activation fee I might...

    RSN's Continue to Fall - Dish drops AT&T Sportsnets

    Funny that Dish is talking about the RSN business model being broken when it’s Dish’s overall business model that also seems in jeopardy. Take away live sports and all your left with is a bunch of channels with syndicated programming I can stream or OTA broadcast channels I can get via an...

    Fox looks horrible

    I have also noticed a lot of variability over the years in the HD quality amongst many of the networks when watching football games. Often it’s grainy. It seems to be most common with the main camera angles that show the live play action. Other close up angles from different cameras often look...

    hbo max adding on

    I’m debating whether to take that deal right now. The 50% off deal ($7.50/ month) is only for 6 months, you don’t get the HBO channels on Dish, and you can’t record anything to DVR. I like to record movies from the Dish movie channels to help insulate me for when I don’t subscribe to the...

    EHD Not Working

    My EHD I’ve had for a number of years is not showing up in the DVR section. I have 2 EHDs and the other one is working fine. I tried swapping out the USB cable, resetting the Hopper 3 receiver, unplugging the EHD, and unplugging the receiver. No luck with any of those. Any ideas on additional...
