NO! :joy: :biggthump
No one knows except E*. Maybe they are waiting until after Feb. to roll out those channels.
Any news on the MLB Network?
None is expected. It would be surprising if DISH added it. (Not unwelcome or precedent setting, just surprising.)
When will we get notified of the increased rate? My bill generates on the 5th of every month, and my Jan 5 (for 1/20-2/19) bill is the same as last month and there is no insert or anything saying its going up next month. Will Dish suddenly just start charging me more, with the theory since they bill in advance (and far in advance) that I can change service in time to go back to my earlier bill amount?
I have not seen a rate increase until my February received bills (billing for March service) in the past few years of increases. You should receive a notice before the bill with the new rate.
I got into HD Absolute a couple of days before it was disbanded.
I'd have to move only when they add Comedy Central HD - that would save me from having to watch Stewart and Colbert from the net.
Having checked the channels in all the Turbo options - looks like bronze + platinum would be ok for me. I'd only miss the NGeographic. Still I'll have to pay $10 to $15more ...
BTW, the channel list on E* has a problem. SciFi is listed with Bronze but again as a Gold channel (i.e new with Gold - using a star next to it). I guess it comes with Bronze ?
It apears to be a typo. I think they intended to mark Science Channel in bold with a gold star (one line above).
The rate increase will come with more HD channels?
No guarantees ... perhaps coincidences.
I just got my January bill. It's dated 01/01/09, with service from 01/16/09 to 02/15/09 (billed a current rates). There's a message on the bill about the price increase:
Oddly, my parents bill was just generated on 01/13/09, with service from 01/28/09 to 02/27/09 (billed a current rates). However, there's no message on their statement about the pending price increases.
It seems that the billing date on your account will affect when your prices go up.
Just received the ATT/DISH bill and it details all kinds of price increases for various packages, including many international ones, but nothing about DishHD Absolute which is the one we have. I'm hoping that means no increase even if no new channels. Next month's bill will tell the whole story i suppose....
Do they notify those of us with paperless billing about the price increase?
I just had my E* installed a week or so ago and got my bill the other day. Other than the bill being totally screwed up (I was not surprised), there was no mention of price increases and the billing showed the current prices still in effect for Jan and Feb.
The screw up was in billing me fees that were not mentioned, not giving a monthly credit as our agreement called for, and for billing me for no phone connection when the requirement had been waived. The CSR said they would credit all the above in the next billing. We'll see.
Hopefully E* will get the erroneous billing squared away by the Feb billing, which will probably be just in time for the price increase to take effect.
What kind of additional fees were they trying to charge you?
A $50 upgrade charge. Upgrade from what?
A $5/month programming access fee (no phone connection) - supposed to be waived.
They left off a monthly credit we negotiated to be competitive with D*'s promotion and to get my business.
They forgot to bill me a penny for Cinemax .. and forgot to turn it on too.
About par for the course, I reckon.
But it's all supposed to be fixed... sometime.
I'm happy with the service (DDA 250) thus far.
Not yet. I just checked my January 14 dated bill and there was nothing about it in that bill. One weird thing, though, the tax went from $0.30 (6% of $5) to $0.58 for some mysterious reason.
Taxes? On my bill, I don't have any taxes. Should I be happy?
Whats the advantage of DDA?
Starting in February 98 cents per DVR. Until then there is a larger discount. (I'm expecting a price freeze until 2011 on DDA as well.)
