    Great advice. One can pick it up prn, then jettsion it after 6 mos. to avoid an addt'l fee for cancelling the service too soon.

    The early removal fee went away after the price increase to 7.

    FYI, the removal fee is back. Keep it 4 months or it's $25 to remove.

    It is? Didn't DIRT just tell us when the fee went to $7 it'd be waived?

    I'm assuming the removal fee was discontinued temporarily so as to not upset customers who had just added it prior to the price increase. I think we should all know by now Dish reserves the right to change its mind :p

    What it really boils down to is this. If you have completed your 2 year commitment you have 2 choices. Stay with Dish and pay the $95 or switch to Directv (assuming your not considering cable) for free. There are plenty of people who make that same switch just for the new customer freebies. I doubt this particular situating comes up too often. I've been through many bad storms with no damage to my equipment. If I were Dish I'd just replace it as a goodwill gesture, like the Roku and free movie channels etc. A little good pub goes a long way.

    Not to be smart... but actually, it quite literally is rocket science :)
