I have Dish Network, and don't have my 322 receiver hooked to a phone line and I am not charge the $5/mth because I wrote an email to one of the execs and complained about it and they had the fee waived off my account. I've never ordered pay per view, and I read this today on the FAQ on Dish Network's site: Why do I need a phone line connected to my Dish Network receiver? A phone line connection is required in order to provide non-interrupted programming. The phone line will not interfere with your telephone use. If the Dish Network receiver is using the telephone line and someone picks up the telephone, the Dish Network receiver will immediately stop and try again later. The same will be done if a call is received. The Dish Network receiver will only use a toll free (800) number. This provides continuous access to DISH Network Pay-Per-View movies and events and allows use of the Customer Support Application and other Interactive TV applications on channel 100. DISH Network Pay-Per-View purchases are stored within your receiver and limited to a specific purchase amount. The phone line connection allows your DISH Network Pay-Per-View purchases to download automatically and be processed by our computers. These purchases are then applied to your regular bill. ========================== Being that I don't have a phone line connected, can I order Pay Per View stuff for FREE since it will be stored in my receiver, but since there's no phone line connection, it can't download anything to dish network's computers for processing???
