We are considering switching to DISH and are curious about the HD for life offer. It says HD for life of the account. Does this mean for the 2 year commitment or for as long as we maintain an account with DISH even if it is beyond our initial 2 year contract? Also to get an HD receiver capable of supporting 2 TVs do we have to get one that has a DVR?

Thank you

Life of the account means so long as it is active, so even past the 2 years you would still get HDFL. We do have a non-DVR HD receiver that supports 2 TVs. If both of the TVs in your home need to be HD, you will need to get 2 separate receivers (the duo receivers only support 1 HDTV, the other is SD). Please let us know if you have any additional questions

Don't forget that HD for Life requires autopay and paperless billing.

What programming package do you have?
they used to have seperate HD and Platinum packages for $ 10 a piece and then (thanks to satellite guys) I found out I could cancel both of those packages and get a "combined" platinum and HD" for $10 a month..those who had that package were grandfathered into free HD for life

Dish does not have a receiver that will serve two HD tvs. All of their dual receivers are one HD and one SD tv. A VIP222k will get you two tvs (one HD, one SD) with no DVR. If you have two HD tvs, then I would suggest two VIP 211k receivers. You can add an external hard drive to them and make them into a DVR if you want to at a later date.

and if it did require more than the 2 year contract, would it really make any difference? I've been on autopay and paperless for 13 years without issue......

Does it also require autopay-for-life, and paperless-billing-for-life? Or just autopay-and-paperless-billing for the duration of the 2 year contract?

Thanks.

If autopay with paperless billing was removed, HD Free for Life would be forfeited until it was added back on to the account.
