I had to do a Chat with them as it did not show for me online either. And I didn't lose HD free. I have the Flex plus one pack and dropped my bill $29.Hi
I'm wondering why I don't see the Flex Pack under My programming, Change Programming?
Also, If I was to change my Service to the Flex Pack, would I lose the HD Free For Life (reg $10)$ 0.00 ? and then be charged $10 for HD?
I tried to downgrade in the past, but then it said I would no longer get HD Free For Life, and would have to pay $10 for the HD
I think this is intentional on Dish's part. Around the same time they made this change, they also stopped allowing deactivated HD receivers to get the HD feeds of the free preview channels. So, it is a trade-off. We lost the satellite-delivered HD free previews, but we gained guide data for our free OTA locals.I don't think guide data is a receiver-specific function. At this point, Hoppers, 722, and 211k receivers have "kept" their guide data for OTA locals so it appears to be safe to assume this is the case.
Now, the skeptic in me is wondering if this is an oversight on Dish's part or not ! Has anyone from DIRT commented on how OTA guide data is now remaining available ?
What plan did you have?Just switched to flex and added 4 packages to get the majority of channels I will watch. I am now missing 2 or 3 channels, but I have shaved $ 36/month off my bill (actually $28, I canceled the Protection plan at the same time).
