    Cheapest way to get Dish installed with no contract?

    Cheapest way to get Dish installed with no contract?

    Why not ask the LL if it would be ok to do the install yourself? Or see if he/she would be willing to run the line for a small fee. It doesn't hurt to ask.

    free dish any advice?

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I think we are going to try the controlled fall method if there's enough room. The view from google maps doesn't look good. The yard is very small and narrow. I'm going over today to assess the situation. How heavy would you guess the dish to be? I'm not sure...

    Equipment exchange 301 for 311

    On friday I came home and found a dish network box sitting on my porch. Opened it up and they sent me a dp311 with equipment exchange instructions. At first I thought they're trying to scam me into the receiver lease fee. But I think they're going 8psk soon, and trying to keep customers from...
