Dish Says NO! to 5th Receiver. Buy Your Own
Posted 08 February 2009 - 08:10 PM
in my office to get TV on my HD Big sreen monitor and still have the TV with the exercise bike. After 1 hour on phone, Loyalty Dish tells me no can do! Advised to purchase own unit on ebay and hook up. Said there would be no additional charges. i'm confused and beginning to feel stupid. Can anyone enlighten me? i'm all ears. Paying about $ 150/month for everything.

This is also why people with larger systems generally choose DirecTV. Dish is cheaper for smaller systems, but more expensive as you go beyond 4 TVs. Still, if you want more, you can have it, you just have to pay for it.
There's no run-around involved; it's the same rules for everyone, and this isn't one that is often broken. In the rare cases it is, it's usually because Dish screwed up big time somewhere, and that's not the case here.
