Well......., you could always buy the package elsewhere, since DishStore doesn't sell it anyway, and then to alleviate any pangs of guilt you may feel you could donate and become a supporter/ Pub member here and it would be a win-win situation for all involved, hehehe.Gregg Loewen said:hi
I could order through anybody and if JVC rebrands the TV (as with the PVR) I could even buy directly from JVC...
but then Id not be supporting Satelliteguys would I ??
jgoggan said:I am also being repeatedly told by Dish at various locations (main number, WOW-HDTV number, ceo email, and so on) that 921s are simply not available except through retailers -- period. Including any HDTV w/ 921 deal.
When someone DOES know about the HDTV w/ 921 deal for existing customers -- they tell me that I have to go through a local retailer. When I try to do that (calling over a dozen of my "nearest" retailers), I get told that either the deal doesn't exist, or that they won't sell it to existing customers because they don't make enough money.
Claude -- or anyone else -- is there any "part number" or anything that I could give to the locals that can't seem to find anything about this deal to tell them what to order? Ignoring the ones that just WON'T sell it to me, I'm hoping that if I give one of the other retailers enough information (i.e. how to order it for existing customers for $1599), then one of them will finally do it.
Any help that anyone can give on that? Thanks!

As well, no time frame either.
I continue to ping them on this, via telephone & email. Maybe something will shake loose soon.
Mainstreet said:You are correct. There is currently NO way to get a 921 with the HDTV set for $1599 as an existing customer. Currently, that price point is ONLY for new customers.
One option would be to take the HD in a box deal for $999 and get a 921 for $999, and then sell the 811 for $400 to make up the difference. You should be able to get at least $400 on eBay for the 811. That would make your total cost $1599 for a 921 and the HDTV.
