    Why would DISH want to pay $300 to get you back, you already paid an ETF so you could go to D*.

    So you want them to tack on another 300$ ontop of the 700$ it costs to acquire you as a customer?

    How long ago did you leave Dish by the way?

    And lastly the answer to your question is nope, you could try to find a retailer who might buy you out though but its unlikely.

    I do not believe I have ever heard of a "we'll pay your ETF" offer where DISH does the paying. I'm surprised that DirecTV still has one (although it is hard to find).

    It costs too much to gain a new customer to throw away cash as well as the equipment discounts and installation costs when signing someone up. Especially someone who pay not stick around long enough to pay off that investment. Perhaps if DISH could sign you to a four year contract with a $700 ETF it might be worth the risk to pay an ETF elsewhere, but DISH doesn't have that kind of contract.

    Winters,...
    It'd be useful to the rest of us for you to say why the dissatisfaction?

    See this thread from 2010 to read more about DirecTV's rebate.
    See also this thread from 2011 where the terms of DirecTV's rebate are printed (although the second thread was asking if DISH also offered such a rebate).
