    Cancelling DISH

    I moved back to an area with UVerse. Way cheaper to bundle internet and TV, and unlike Cox or Time Warner, it is affordable. Plus it's only a 12 month contract so you can keep switching with roommate every year to keep the discounts. Doesn't have NHL Network, but that's my only frustration. I...

    Cancelling DISH

    For Future reference, just send them a PM on Twitter and somebody on DIRT will come and take care of it. Jason was super helpful. I wish DIRT could just process cancellations in the first place. It would be so much more efficient.

    Cancelling DISH

    I PMed Matt, who does not work Wednesdays. It's really odd. The guy asked for the address for my return kit and said all the disclosures about $10 per receiver return fee and $20 per unused month, so it seems weird that he would not have actually canceled it. I'll try to have a chat agent cancel...

    Cancelling DISH

    I do NOT want the dish de-installed. I am hoping that someone from DIRT can cancel this technician visit that I assured the CSR was not necessary. How does a short term customer know more about DISH policies than their own employees? The CSR even said they would waive the fee for this visit...

    Cancelling DISH

    Just to update the thread and publicly announce the nickel and diming that DISH has instituted, when I told the phone CSR that I would not be going on the roof to retrieve the LNB, Dish wants to charge me $145 to send somebody out to remove the entire DISH. Sounds dumb since some future tenant...

    Cancelling DISH

    Does anyone know if I can schedule a cancellation upfront or if I need to wait until the day I want to cancel service? Live chat was completely useless and referred me to an 800 number - the whole point is I don't want to waste my time on the phone if I am just going to have to call again in a...

    Samsung 60" Plasma or Vizio 60" E600i-B3 LED

    The Vizio I referenced is an LED/LCD, not a plasma. My Magnavox 26" LCD has lasted well over 10 years and my Sony 40" LCD is 5 years now, it's weird to me to read all these reviews about TVs that don't last. I feel like I put fairly heavy usage on them... What is the difference between Samsung...

    Samsung 60" Plasma or Vizio 60" E600i-B3 LED

    I am looking for a new TV. My current TV's are a small-ish Magnavox LCD that's probably like 12 years old and a 42" Sony Bravia. They are both fine, I just want something bigger. My budget is $800. I can get the Samsung PN60F5300AFXZA or Vizio E600i-B3 I do not watch many movies, never have...

    SlingTV Invites going out tonight 1/26

    Because the RSN's get far more revenue from cable/satellite subscribers than advertising. Allowing those broadcasts in MLB.TV circumvents that. The out of market games dont have much value, hence the MLB.TV package.

    CNN and HLN gone/ Dish-Turner Dispute - Now Back 11/21

    I'm guessing that Dish is right on this one, though I'd rather have CNN than MSNBC personally. We'll see. Losing TBS/TNT would be a bigger loss.

    Dish OTT Targets $30 Price Point

    If they can get the regional sports networks and big 4 locals, I'd strongly consider it.

    CNN and HLN gone/ Dish-Turner Dispute - Now Back 11/21

    I didn't get a discount, but I got 3 free months of Starz and Cinemax. Works for me.
