I started with them in January 2011, so I have had their service since Early March 2011. They made you wait 30 days to set up service, and then once the 30 days passed, you would be able to schedule the appointment.
I bought the Dish ISD 3200 receiver in October 1996. I've been with Dish ever since. Did the installs myself until the DVR 510 was retired and we needed a new dish for the 722K and our current Hopper 3.
I don't remember the year first receiver was a 311, then upgraded to a DVR 522 then a 625 , then a 722k w/Sling adapter to a Hopper 2 with SJ. Now a Hopper 3 with wireless Joey.this is most likely my last Dish receiver, thinking of moving too Sling later on.
