I have already started charging extra for some of these SuperDish installations (depending on the difficulty and what is involved with getting the Dish installed) because of how expensive the shipping is on them then having to use a pole on a lot more of the installs if not most. There is less room for keeping the install at a free pricepoint when you make less money right off the bat than what the Dish 300 or Dish 500 does.
Not only that but they are more complex to set up and you have more wire connectors you have to use along with more wire and more time. There is more involved with getting a SuperDish setup than the Dish 300 or Dish 500 because of it's size and weight. The extra time it takes alone takes away from the number you can do each day reducing profitability.
Many do not want to pay for the upgrade since it has been advertised so many times about how it is free. Not only this but Dish has not paid some of their retailers for the SuperDish upgrades and I got paid for one of three so I choose to wait and see if I have any problems getting the other payments.
Not only this but we have to buy a receiver with every SuperDish and then you have the shipping on those as well and that much more of a loss if you have more receivers than what you can sell. The combination of all of these things plus the retailer backcharge period being extended is going to make things more rough for some. You can only go so cheap on an install especially the SuperDish installation before you run into problems with the SuperDish being able to work correctly due to not being mounted correctly on strong enough boards if they do not want to use poles, among other things.
