For any recent new subscribers, how long from the time you signed up until you got installed? Presently I'm using Comcast now but am looking to switch over to D* or E*. I called D* first and was told that the earliest install date would be 5 weeks away. Now I know there are many installers out there and they can be pretty busy and I can't blame them if they are all booked up for a month or so. Just curious on what your E* install times were.

If you call your local dealer you can probably get installed within a couple of days.

A day or two is typical right now. Try different retailers if you don't like your first answer.

I signed up through Dish directly on the phone in December. Called on a Friday and got an appointment for Sunday morning. When they got out here though we realized they messed up the work order and had to schedule another followup for Tuesday - so only 2 days both times. Then somehow they cancelled the Tuesday one by accident without me knowing. I called fuming when no one showed Tuesday and they had someone out for the next day. So 1 day, if they need to.

I'm in Tempe, AZ - a major metro area. It probably depends a lot on where you live...
