I wrote to Dish to complain about the $4.99/month additional receiver charge. With the new Quad LNB dishes out I was thinking of upgrading my Dish (or putting in a switch) and adding more receivers. This charge makes no sense as I own my receivers. I tried to explain this to Dish and here was there response: "The additional outlet fee of $4.99 per month is to transmit all of your programming from your main receiver to your additional receiver. The satellites transmit this feed and signal which takes more resources from our up link center." Does this make any sense to anyone? If they are referring about having to transmit further signals with smartcard codes why not change to one smartcard per dish rather than per receiver? Thoughts?
