Noticed this ad on zap2it a little bit ago. It was for the kangaroo but the last screen says "RISK FREE" 30 day trial. I tried to click on the ad but it goes nowhere

Didnt know Dish had a 30 day trial? Thought once you singed you were locked into a 2 year agreement

screengrab....didnt see this anywhere else so maybe DIRT can confirm?

Well, yeah.................... They didn't say "Risk Free" to WHO! lol.

30 day trial, plus 2 years TRIAL of trying to get them to cancel you.............. = risk free to DISH!

I heard that they're doing a pilot program for only a few hundred customers where they can get a 30 day trial and cancel without penalty in that 30 days. I'm not sure of specifics, but I assume that after the 30 days the 2 year commitment is enforced.

Every once and a while they try this to win over people who are on the fence. The problem is that a majority of the people who they sign up because of the free trial end up cancelling on the 29th day.

Then the bigger issue is that after the trial is over, people still think there is a 30 day trial period and you end up getting into an argument with customers over it when they want to cancel before the first 30 days.

If they want to do a true trial, make it for only 7 days.

I thought they had a trial using the service online? Would be pretty interesting if they could use the Joeys for a trial via broadband. Since they team up with Frontier which has no data caps that could be a very interesting thing to do.
