O.K. I'm VENTING! Locals were launched in Cola. S.C. yesterday Nov. 6. I called Dish 5 times trying to sign up for the Superdish and locals. Every time I was told that the computer was down call back later. My last call was at 10:00 pm. and was informed to call back in a couple days. On the way into work I heard Dish advertising on our local radio stations that local television stations are now available. I called Dish at About 11:00 a.m. and the nearest install date would be Jan. 04,2004. I later called a Dish sales rep. and asked if the superdish was avaiable in the stores, she indicated that they should be. I then told her I was a current customer, could I go to a store and get the superdish. She replied that this is for new customers only. I called 10 different stores.No one had the superdish. I went to a local Radio Shack and they are still selling the Dish 500 packages. I think Dish Network is about to have a big PR problem . Someone goes into a retail store buys a Dish 500 system thinking they are going get their locals, well I hope you can see the picture.
