    I love Dish but can no longer justify it.

    I've been with Dish for nearly 20 years and never experienced rain fade. The only time I lose signal is during very heavy thunderstorms.

    I love Dish but can no longer justify it.

    I did notice that the Frndly app is not compatible with my Nvidia Shield TV. I guess I can try side loading the APK and see if it works.

    If it's an Android device then you should be able to side load any apps you want.

    Will a VIP 211k work?

    All I did was connect the same coax cable to the 211k that was also connected to the Hopper.

    Will a VIP 211k work?

    Yes. I ran check switch and it did not detect the satellites. Whenever I tried to go to any of the channels I got the "complete loss of signal message".

    Will a VIP 211k work?

    My 2 year contract after upgrading to the Hopper isn't up until February, so I'll wait until then to contact Dish to figure what I need to do in order to get the 211k working. It may be that I just need to deactivate the Hopper and then activate the 211k.

    Will a VIP 211k work?

    I hooked up the 211k and after it downloaded the program guide it gave a "complete loss of signal error".

    Will a VIP 211k work?

    I'm thinking of getting rid of my Hopper 3 and going with a 211k that I own in order to save on the $15 a month DVR fee. I really don't record much and wouldn't miss the DVR that much anyway. Would the 211k work with my current set up or would I need a technician to come to my home?

    Welcome Pack no longer available

    It isn't listed as an option on mine. I have the Welcome Pack now and I was going to upgrade to Flex. I was told If I cancelled the Welcome Pack that I would not be able to get it again since it is no longer offered.

    Welcome Pack no longer available

    Just got off the phone with a Dish CSR and was told that the Welcome Pack is no longer available. This is the first I've heard of this. Anyone aware that it was removed?

    Dish Price Increase Coming - 11/16/2021

    Even when the cost of fuel and food was down it didn't stop Dish from increasing their prices every year did it?

    Dish Price Increase Coming - 11/16/2021

    Dish is bleeding customers as it is. Raising prices isn't going to help.

    Dish Price Increase Coming - 11/16/2021

    Dish is doing a great job of driving away customers with these constant price increases. More people will just cancel and rely on streaming services and/or an OTA antenna. In the long run Dish is hurting themselves.

    Tegna removes local channels

    So what's your solution? Full government control of the networks? I'm sure that would be great!

    Guess I'll be streaming Sunday night's NFL game via other "alternative methods".

    DISH Fights for a Fair Deal, Tegna Prioritizes Greed above Consumers

    Nothing will stop it. It's the same old song and dance every year. Customers lose the channels for a few months or more and they get them back eventually along with the inevitable price increase.

    DISH Fights for a Fair Deal, Tegna Prioritizes Greed above Consumers

    I'm sick of these yearly contract disputes. I think it's time to cancel my locals with Dish and resort to other "questionable" ways of getting my local channels.
