    HBO for $10 is back and Showtime is 1/2 off

    Thanks for the heads up, online chat worked great, $9 a month back just covers the rate increase plus a bit.

    Dish Network Corp. (DISH) founder Charlie Ergen said he may permanently drop Time Warner Inc.

    I have to be honest, Dish has done very right by me over the years in upgrading hardware without commitments and honoring some pretty decent programming deals when I called because of my tenure. I just talk to a service rep and mention my time with the company and 9 times out of 10 whatever...

    Dish Network Corp. (DISH) founder Charlie Ergen said he may permanently drop Time Warner Inc.

    Nah, you misunderstand what I'm leaning towards here a bit: I've been wanting to drop providers entirely -- move to online for the few shows I care about. I think. For our current Dish set up my youngest daughter really is the person who watches the majority of TV (not a bad parent comment...

    Dish Network Corp. (DISH) founder Charlie Ergen said he may permanently drop Time Warner Inc.

    We are up to week 3 now with my daughter not being able to watch her favorite shows (seriously, she DRVed 4 shows and watched them over and over) -- so I'm starting to seriously weigh some of my options. I honestly want to see how well the family manages not having TV, but am not sure I'm...

    Dish Network Corp. (DISH) founder Charlie Ergen said he may permanently drop Time Warner Inc.

    My daughter asks daily if Cartoon Network is back -- honestly this might make it easy for me to talk the family into dropping Dish entirely (and NOT going to another provider, just drop it for a while to see how we do). I told her after a month if it isn't back we'd see what we could do.

    OTA Recordings Breaking Up

    FWIW: I run into the issues on the 2 Joeys in my house, but not on the Hopper proper. Note for all of these tests I was watching (well, trying to watch I guess) live TV.

    Dish 722 Rebooting a lot

    FWIW my 722 has been regularly rebooting for a couple of weeks now as well. Starting this weekend it has also had display trouble with the TV2 output (over coax). The output UI (dish menus and guides etc) are fine, but the actual TV image (DVR or any live channel) is messed up. I'm using...

    Hopper Upgrades

    After a show-and-tell with my neighbor (who just moved back to dish) I would be interested in discussing Hopper upgrade options for my active account. A PM from the DIRT team would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Can you get the new HD from DISH?

    I just got off of the phone with Dish: First off, I spoke with Dan 60H from first line tech support and Gary 9BQ from Advanced -- both were personable, helpful and realized I was an informed subscriber and spoke with me as such. Just wanted to note my support experience was very positive...

    Can you get the new HD from DISH?

    Per the website I have: Current Programming: America's Top 250 Local Channels: Lexington, KY Premium Channels: N/A International or Ala Carte Add-ons: Fox Sports Cincinnati, HD & Platinum Which should be everything I need. Sounds like I need them to 'hit' my box. Of the 2...

    Can you get the new HD from DISH?

    Hmm, I do not the new channels (most notably BBCAHD which is the one I want). I did a quick check switch to see my config and got the following: 1k4 switch with 77, 72, 61.5, x as the Sats (in Lexington, KY). When calling dish what do I need to request they do in order to get the new...

    612 weird blip every day same time

    A friend of mine asked be about this exact same issue. They were recording the 6am news on a local channel and every day the recording would end at 6:12am on the dot. This was on a 622 -- which they had replaced (thinking it is a hardware issue) but ran into the same issue with new...

    Dish HD Locals---Any cities have them yet?

    Dumb question time: that list is not the final list of cities on the docket correct? There seems to be some finality to that list as people talk about it that scares me a bit (mainly because good old Lexington, KY isn't even on the horizon). Just curious if cities not already listed were...
