My God, has it been that long?
If it helps, Harley, I just called dish last night to change my service address; the entire call took exactly 4 minutes and 22 seconds. I've done it 4 times in the past year and it's been pretty easy and straightforward, not at all like it used to be a few years ago.

What happens to people who prepaid for a year? Just called the number and they said that department is not in until 11AM.
Well given the uplink report thread, it looks like Dish will launch HD Distants. The must have crunched the numbers and concluded the RV market was profitable. Of course given that Dish has no association with AAD, one will probably have to apply to get the distants from Dish with the copy of RV title again.
I wonder if they'll be able to grandfather my waivers from when I had them before with Dish or if I'll have to re-apply. Anyhow, it seems accurate about them offering them up as of the 21st (as previously speculated by a poster).
I agree. AAD didn't accept waivers filed with Dish when they started the DNS services.I bet this time they make everyone reapply. Dish will not want to risk losing the ability to provide distants like they did before.
In my case they offered me to cancel the Chicago distants and apply the remaining balance towards a 1 year of the NY distants. I'm good (hopefully) until February 2012.What happens to people who prepaid for a year? Just called the number and they said that department is not in until 11AM.
I called yesterday as soon as I heard they were gone. (It was hard to get through and the first agent after holding for 10 minutes, put me on hold until I redialed). Anyhow, to the point, the agent told me that there were no refunds and I had to take the SD's for the remainder of the year. I didn't argue, but I think if you do argue, they'll possibly send out a credit as I've read elsewhere... not sure they actually received it though...
I bet this time they make everyone reapply. Dish will not want to risk losing the ability to provide distants like they did before. It will have to be pretty restricted to just RVers. Short markets will probably get the distants automatically for the missing stations.
