(apologies for the all caps. I didn’t feel like going back and re-typing it all after I realized I had done that)
I have been a DISH customer for 23 years. All I have ever asked for is an honest, steady price. In return, I have jumped through the same hoops every 3 to 6 months, threatening to cancel so that they gave me a temporary discount. I am finished with them. DISH SUCKS (they used to be the best with the best hardware- No More!)!!
THEY ARE MAKING THEMSELVES UNCOMPETITIVE IN THE MARKETPLACE. I CAN’T GET THE CHANNELS I WANT BECAUSE THEY KEEP CANCELING THEM. I SUPPORTED THEM WHEN THEY PLAYED HARDBALL WITH HBO, AND THEN MY LOCAL NETWORK PROVIDER, AND THEN WITH MY RSN, BUT THEY HAVE FORCED ME TO GO GET SEPARATE STREAMING ACCOUNTS FOR ALL OF THEM SO EVEN IF THEY BRING THEM ALL BACK, I AM NOT GOING TO PUT IT IN MY PACKAGE. AND NOW THAT I HAVE TO HAVE STREAMING EQUIPMENT ANYWAY (Apple 4K and firesticks - NO more monthly rental!) I SEE NO REASON TO CONTINUE PAYING FOR THE HOPPER OR THESE WIRELESS JOEYS THAT DON’T WORK WORTH A DAMN.
I AM ALSO GETTING RID OF COMCAST FOR MY BROADBAND, MOVING THAT OVER TO GIG FIBER FROM FRONTIER (OUR PHONE COMPANY). FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER WE HAVE COMPETITION FOR BROADBAND - NOW COMCAST WANTS TO LOWER MY RATE - TOO LATE!
I AM NOW GETTING 2GB SERVICE, HAVE HULU LIVE TV AND A HALF DOZEN OTHER STREAMING SERVICES AND MY BILL WILL GO FROM $320 A MONTH DOWN TO $125 A MONTH FOR EVERYTHING! That includes legal use of additional screens by my daughter and my mother who live elsewhere. The only cost is an extra $10 a month, and they will save over $380/mo between the two of them!
DISH will be bankrupt in about a year. Bye-bye and good riddance!
