    Still tells me nothing. I'll wait for a bill in February. Since I'm now paying $10 less than a year ago due to elimination of HD Platium fee during the summer, I may not be that bad off.

    I still think DISH should send existing customers an announcement before Feb. 1 which compares the specific customer's old and new charges. Guess that would be way too customer friendly for them.

    Not to mention they are greatly prone to conforming to Murphy's Law and probably would screw it up.;)

    Obvious typo - TurboHD Silver and TurboHD Gold listed at the same price - $49.99.

    This appears to be just a reprint of what was already posted with the attendant errors.

    But Uverse uses cheap Motorola boxes. You know the saga I went though.

    I'd never recommend Uverse to friends or family right now. While some appear happy, what I read tells me folks are having problems along the lines of when Dish comes up with a new box that was beta tested by techies instead of a single moms with four kids none of whom a particularly adept on a computer.

    Ok, Parents account gets processed 1st and here is the bill. I have no idea what the $15 adjust is for Classic 250 Gold wDVR. Multisport is normal this time of yr, always drop it. Looks like for the bill just created the month of Feb, still hasn't changed for parents house. Only real change made on our part was dropping MultiSport, saving $26 this month, wierd.

    Nobody has mentioned anything about the monthly charges for the receivers being changed.

    I don't remember the prices exactly. But it's going to be changed to $17, $14, $10 & $7 for the receivers. Depending on what type of receiver you have. I remember the $17 is for the HD Duo DVR & the $7 is for a SD solo non-dvr.

    Have you read the thread??? Lots of posts about the recievers, the costs for additional, the lack of discount for phoneline or network connection, and lots of talk about rather the Primary is included or not. When posting the prices, you should break it out with the increase over the current combined charges, with and without a phone line connection. Some of the increases aren't that large if you never had a phone line, some are a bigger jump, if you did have the phoneline/network connection.

    Anytime there's a change, I have to put the prevous bill and the next two bills on a spreadsheet to figure out what they've done. And as I said on another thread, I'm skeptical that Dish's billing system will correctly handle all these rate changes.

    The $15 could be their promotional credits, the $15 off for the first 12 months.

    I couldn't go through the whole thread but I am sure this hasn't been in the news as yet.

    They waive the TV2 connection fee if you sign up for CCA with paperless billing & also give them a valid e-mail address.

    Now that I have my bill, I have to make some observations:
    • The basic result will be a net $2 increase over January in my combination of packages and equipment - Top 250 HD plus Platinum with a ViP722 and a ViP612, HBO, Showtime, Starz, and Cinemax.
    • Though I had to use ceo@ to get what the chat CSR promised, HBO and Showtime are free for three months which is shown as a $22 credit while last year it was a $20 credit because it was for HBO and Starz.
    • It appears that the Cinemax for a penny is still being delivered into a third year.
    So, ignoring taxes:
    • My net bill for February, March and April 2010 will be $9 less than a year ago because the charge for Platinum is gone and the 3-month premium freebie is a higher credit.
    • My net bill for May, June, and July 2010 will be $7 less than a year ago.
    • Beginning in August 2009 I started getting the free Platinum so that's when my net bill will actually be $2 higher than a year ago.
    I am getting all the various freebies because of this forum. Isn't this forum great!
    :D

    The 3mo hbo/show if done via the promotion will be $20 credit, if done manually it may be a $22 as alot of tech's dont do the math.
