Looking at Dish Flex. I see starting at $34.99. What else is there. I guess there is a Dvr charge. Any extra cost for a basic receiver ? Is there one that will work with a sling adapter?
One of the biggest bargains for Flex subscribers is the Movie Pack , which includes Epix, Encore, Starz, MGM, Sony, FMC, etc. $5 a month on special.
To be precise, it's only Starz Encore Suspense and Starz Family, not all of the Starz and Encore channels that is in the Movie Pack promo. And I think there is 1 Epix channel that isn't included.
Well no, Flex doesn't become $95, your bill does because of all the equipment add-ons and all those extra charges would be the same no matter what package you subscribed to.Here is mine. As you can see Flex easily becomes $95 as equipment is almost as much as programming.
Well I guess you could get Flex on one tv with non dvr service for about $40 but who has only 1 tv and does not want DVR service.Well no, Flex doesn't become $95, your bill does because of all the equipment add-ons and all those extra charges would be the same no matter what package you subscribed to.
I think that is true but I am ok with thisUnless the rules have changed, you could save the $8.99 "DISH Protect Silver" charge, adding it back on only when the need arose. You would have to keep it on for several months (6?) afterwards though.
I bought one and it worked OK. If I had a tv in my garage or some place I might use it once every couple of weeks it would be OK but we use the joeys daily and it is worth the money for the ease of use factor.I replaced two of my joeys with Amazon Fire stick usb dongles for my two tvs that I rarely use. Saved me $14.00 a month.
I will look into that.Your DVR fee should be $10 since you have the 2 year price lock. I’d call in and ask for that.
That sounds more like an ad aimed at retaining existing customers, reminding them that Flex Pack is still an option, and discouraging them from switching to streaming. Now, if Dish would offer new Flex Pack subscribers the $5 per month Hopper Duo DVR fee, then I would believe that Dish is making a push to market Flex Pack to new subscribers.I saw an ad this morning on Food Network for the Flex pack. It was taking a swipe at streaming services not offering local channels or local news. Is Dish taking another stab at marketing it to new customers?
About the best you could do would be to purchase a Wally, add an external hard drive, and pay the one-time $40 DVR activation fee, with no monthly fees after that. You can probably forget about ever reactivating your purchased ViP722k, unless you do it really soon.I'd re-up to Dish and go to Flex in a second, IF they wouldn't charge me the dvr fees, etc on my OWNED 722k receiver. I'm willing to pay the base fees, but not all the BS "because we can" fees.
