I don't believe that price is correct. Retailers can't buy them for that price when they come out.

I guess thats why he has a "Wish List" on his page, I wish that the 811 was $199 too. :D

I just called them. They said that the price is correct and that is with the service activation. Also, he said that the 811 iwll be available on Nov. 17th. What you guys think?

Just shows they don't know what they are talking about (and BTW why is it this is the ONLY Dish Network product I can see on their page?)

On yesterdays Retailer Charlie Chat, Charlie himself said the release date would be December 1st.

:p I really had difficult time dealing with their CS rep too Dell CS that is. But for that matter, E* is no exception. I was talking to one sales guy and he said that 811 will be offered as part of the DHP equipment lease option on 15 th. I called them back to make sure what I've heard is true, since I read that the 811 will be available in Dec time frame, and $#*& they said that they never heard such thing. Huh????? What is going on here?? Had to laugh :superlol:

After the buy back on a new customer activation, a retailer could still make a buck. However the unit should not be sold as receiver only when any real new customer would need a dish as well. Nov 17th? HA!!!!!

I didn't go read their promo but I can bet you that they are quoting $199 for the receiver on a new activation (customer) on the Free Dish promo that gives you a free $199 receiver/Dish/install and if you upgrade to a higher end receiver the $199 is deducted so they could actually get to $199. Of course with Dish in a state of flux as to the real price for the 811 they could still be off if the price does end up at the lofty $499 they are quoting at the present.

OK, I don't see anything at $199, but this page says $399. I don't see anything anywhere that mentions $199, "for new customers", etc.

Did they change their website/page?
