    Kudos to Dish

    I just want to say Kudos to Dish. How many other large companies monitor social media and respond directly to consumers, trying their best to accommodate them? I've been with Dish for almost 15 years and Lord knows every other cable/fiber/satellite provider has tried to get me to switch, even...

    Changing my system from two Hoppers to One?

    Hey all , My current setup is two Hoppers with Joeys. I just got off the phone with a very nice and helpful rep but she was very new and seemed a little confused. I am wanting to change my system to the Sling Hopper and three Joeys. Is this possible? I think that's what we setup an appt...

    How long with Dish?

    Just wondering how long you all have been with,Dish? And why? I've been with them since around 2000/2001. For the most part I've been very happy with the service they provide. I've almost jumped ship a time or two. Most recently to U-Verse and then DirectTV. Yeah I could probably get a...

    Invalid finderID

I have it working well on my WiFi network but once I get on LTE or 3G I get an "invalid FinderID" error. My guide works...

    Good deal for hopper and some questions

    Okay.... I finally bit the bullet and called Dish about upgrading. I've been a customer with Dish for literally 12 years and been contract free for a while now. For the last several years we've "gotten by" with two 622's. With the top 180(?) package and HBO been paying about 114.00/month. I...

    CH 21 (DFW) and HD?

    With local channel 21 carrying the Rangers this year, any chance Dish will start transmitting Ch 21 in HD? Tell you what, the only thing keeping me from jumping ship to U-Verse is no MLB Network. Last year when I was stuck with SD on Fox and Ch 27 my friends were able to watch it in HD.

    getting the landline fee waived. Any luck?

    Has anyone here had any luck getting the Dish Land line fee waived if one cancels one's land line? I am about ready to ditch ours as I can't remember the last time we used it but hate that Dish will fine us if I do. I'm hoping that I can threaten to make the switch to U-Verse and they will...

    622 and Home Distribution Feed

    Hello, Pardon the probably stupid question but I just want to ensure that the home distribution feed on the 622 is in fact "true" HD. I just got back from the Wal Mart where I picked up a 19inch Panasonic Widescreen LCD TV. I plugged the coax into the back of the TV tuned it to Channel...

    HD OTA w/Dish BOX?

    Hello, I am a current Dish subscriber in the Dallas market. I said that only because Dish does not yet offer locals in my area. I was told that I could purchase a HD-OTA and plug it into the back of my Dish box, and then antenna signal would then pass through the box and show up on the...
