    FCC wants to do away with all "set top boxes"?

    Have you seen this? Basically the FCC would require all providers like Dish to make their content available without a dedicated box. All programming would be available via an app. So no more Hoppers?

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

    So a few months ago I saw all the promotions for HBO for $10 a month but I didn't bite. Then a friend let my borrow his Game of Thrones DVDs. I watched all 4 seasons and wanted to watch the 5th. You can only watch it on HBO. So...I log into my Dish account to see if maybe the $10 a month...

    Hello, I've tried to search and figure this out but now I'm just confused. I can't figure out Dish's prices. I have a 722K as my main receiver. My kids share a 625. Would there be any cost savings by getting two 211K's with EHDs to replace the 625? (I'm not ready a Hopper system just...

    Channels in 250 not in 200?

    I've tried to find the simple answer but have had no luck. I'm looking for a list of the difference between the two packages. I'm not looking for a list of every channel in both packages. I'm looking for a list of channels in 250 that are not in 200. Is there such a list somewhere?

    Will the DVR keep working during a weather outage?

    As the title says, if you're already watching something on your DVR during a storm that would result in an outage, will it keep working or go out too? I know once you have a weather outage, you can't access the DVR (why not, I don't know? Maybe they could fix this?)

    Can't flip past channel 100?

    I've got a 722K with L668 software. I can't flip channels past 100. If I start on a channel lower than 100 and trying flipping up to a higher channel, it stops at 100. I can go back down, but not up. If I start at a channel higher than 100 and flip down, it stops at 100 and will not go...

    Anyone else get free HBO/Showtime WITHOUT asking?

    I have a bad habit of never looking at my Dish bill. It's usually around the same amount on my bank statement so I don't get too twisted about it. Bad for me, good for Dish I know. I usually just laugh when people on here talk about their bill being $5 different and demanding an explaination...
