It sounded to me like there is a documented process that some CSR's are following that has them shut off locals in some convoluted effort to add the wing dish. I've read (in this thread?) or another forum about others who had this happen, nothing about just shutting off the locals for all.Did they shut down all the locals? or only the people who are receiving the upgrade?
so this begs the question -- are there installers in Cleveland who will install a 61.5 dish for less than the $60 that Dish wants? Or does Dish subsidize this install (so the installer gets more than $60 from Dish)?
I obviously can't speak for any installers except the one I know, he usually has extra equipment laying around and said he would do it for me for $50.
