It is included in the AT120 and 200 if you have the HD add on ($10 per month). If you sign up for HD Free for Life it becomes available only if you subscribe to Dish Platinum.
Could DIRT post a "confirmation, yes it really is so" post so we are all certain.
Said it many time before..............SHADY.....................
Not as Shady as giving your customers a satellite dish,then telling them they need the service plan to fix it,then if you cancel they ask for the LNB back?.
And I also know when you cancel your Dish Network subscription you can tell them you can't reach it and Dish will not charge you for the LNB.But it's the thought that counts!.:rant:
DishSubLA said:So, people think they are getting HD for life by making things less expensive for Dish by committing to autopay and email statements or paying a lot of money up front for HD for Life. As is apparent by this thread, Dish doesn't seem to advertise this difference on HD Free for Life and the HD Add-on.
Is DIRT really sure about this? Could DIRT post a "confirmation, yes it really is so" post so we are all certain. If this really is the case, good grief! While there may be a legitimate reason for this Palladia situation because of contracts or payments by Dish for the channel, it still comes across as dishonest, flim-flam at worst or disingenuous at best. Say it aint so. As one who watches Palladia, I would be REALLY pissed if I had paid for HD for life only to find that if I want said channel, it would cost me an additional $10.00 per month because it is, IN FACT, offered in the AT's, even if only as the HD add-on. PLEASE!
I just want to clarify the packages. The HD Free for Life gives the channels that are included with the AT packages that are simulcast in HD. The HD add-on is different because you are paying $10 per month and you get two additional channels (HD theater, and Palladia). Those channels are a bonus when you pay for the HD add-on and are not included in the basic AT packages.
This is all way too confusing and something Dish should consider simplifying. If you are getting "HD for life", it should include all the non-premiums. There shouldn't be an additional $10 fee to get more non-premium HD channels.
And let's remember Palladia was supposed to be a replacement for the Fuse channel that was dropped last year but that was conveniently taken away by Dish as well and denied by all representatives when customers asked about it.
The first part is to be expected if you are not capable of owning, installing, and maintaining your own equipment. There is nothing shady about them expecting this from customers who want EVERYTHING for free.
That monthly fee is for programming not for service. If your car breaks you have to pay for it. So if your system goes bad then you should be the one that pays for it. BTW many cable companies charge for service calls now.Sure is. To me, if you pay a monthly fee for a service and they stop delivering the service for whatever reason, it's their responsibility to fix the problem or refund you your money and waive any contractual obligations. I know that's not the law, but there is such a thing as an ethical responsibility in this world. Not everything that's legal is right. Even the cable company will come out and fix the equipment they are leasing you, or replace it, for free if your service stops working, and cable companies are not exactly models of perfect customer service themselves, but even they do this bare minimum without tacking on a surcharge.
Didn't do anything to get hd free for life.
