Dish has announce a new plan which starts on April 19th so you can buy a 622 and send in your 921 or 942 and get a $200 credit applied to your account!

Dish is experencing a gap in 622's there will be a 2 or 3 week gap when 622's are not available due to production issues and demand.

After a long talk about the 30 day money back promotion they went into warning the dealers about using telemarketers.

The chat is basically over now, however they will still be staying on and taking questions, if there is anything interesting I will post it here.

Do you know if this is only for subs who currently have more than one 921/942 they wish to upgrade? Or does this also include people who already upgraded a 921/942 and would like to lease a 2nd 622?

Fan-tastic.

As to others confusion, I would think this is an addendum to the existing Dish-n-It-Up parameters, just allowing (formally) more than one HD receiver at a time. In other words, same lease/owned price-points and requirements, just multiple rooms (i.e., I have 1 leased 942 and 2 leased 811s, I pay the $299 for the 942 w/ $200 'rebate' on next bill, and $49 per 811--all requiring I send in the old boxes and swapout done via an E*-sanctioned installation [due mainly to requisite dish upgrades, but even if not needed]) That your take, Scott?
