Howdy folks. I plan to sign up for the $29.99/month DishHD standalone plan, and do the paperless billing/autopay for the $.01/year Cinemax. I will not want a DVR and only need one box. My parents have a referral, so I get a $50 credit (they tell me).

Is there any reason to sign a contract? I won't miss the programming credits, and I prefer the freedom of not signing an agreement. Will I have to pay for the equipment if I don't sign?

Either way, what fees will actually be on my bill?

i do believe that if you do not sign a contract you will have to buy your equipment. a 211 receiver will set you back about $250...

Actually, funny thing. I signed up for DishHD with a 612 and a 722. Installer came out, with contact, I read every word it said "This contract is OPTIONAL" right on it. I checked "I decline" and signed, and told him I was making a photo copy. I called dish 3 days later, and sure enough, I was in a 18 month contract. I explained this was wrong, and faxed them my copy of the contract, as well as calling the local install company about it. Later that day I got a call back from dish, no more contract... never had to pay for the equipment, still noticed I am getting 3 free months (first credit of 3 showed up on my bill still) and no other weird charges...

Moral of the story, copy EVERYTHING the installer shows you that he is going to take back with him.
