Just checked the programming tab and under my summary they show locals as $12.00 but there is also a $2.00 credit for Local Savings. I am on the second year of my two year price freeze, so I wonder if this is to keep my bill the same for the rest of this year till my price lock ends in December? I also noticed this same credit under programming tab summary on my 2nd account for my parents, also on second year of price lock deal.

That would be the easiest way to not overcharge customers on price lock.
 
Same on mine, was surprised that price lock was for both Flex and locals, expected it to be only for Flex. Guess I'm good till August
If I remember the promotion for new customers when Flex Pack was introduced, it was marketed as a bundle deal of Flex Pack plus one add-on of your choice for $39.99 per month. (Of course, there was no requirement to take the add-on if you did not want to pay more than $29.99 for just the base Flex Pack. It should also be noted that several of the add-ons each cost less than the $10.00 price difference for the bundle deal with the first add-on.) It is good to see that Dish is honoring this price-lock deal for everyone.

I wasn't a new customer, just swapped package (with price lock offered if I agreed to new 2 yr contract, got nothing extra). In past discounts only affected main programming pkg, but this is first time locals were separated so knowing how we get charged extra for everything I expected to get the $2 charge. Definitely not complaining :)
 
Right, that was my point. Dish is honoring the advertised deal for everyone, whether you were a new customer or not.

Must really be trying not to piss more customers into leaving.

Back in the day a price increase was a price increase. Dish didn’t care if you where in a contract or not.

Only thing that was guaranteed was the discount on the base package price

I finally got a free Hopper 3 upgrade. Can’t give a customer an ETF if they leave because they won’t be provided with useable equipment. Now I’ll be able to truly enjoy dish. I love the package I have and don’t want to ever leave them. But if I ever get stuck with unusable equipment again and they don’t resolve the problem then I won’t have a choice. IMO dish is still light years ahead of the competition.
 
A light year is not a measurement of time. It is a description of distance, about six trillion miles. Either way, it's one hell of an edge for DISH, if you believe that.
I did not take his post as a reference to time. "light years ahead" just means so far in front that they are on their way to the next star system. :)
