Quesrtions before I switcvh . . .
Posted 06 March 2010 - 07:54 PM
Assuming I can get any kind of "deal" (I had Dish 5 or 6 years ago) who has the best one? (I have CenturyLink for my phone, wanted to bundle, but from what I saw on their website, their prices are MORE than the standard Dish rates . . . unless they have some "unadvertised specials?")
If I can pick which receiver I can get -- preferably a dual tuner -- is there a best one? (BTW, do they still have the UHF remotes . . . I REALLY miss that!)
I don't have an HDTV yet -- and no immediate plans to do so -- but could I get an HD receiver and use it in SD for now, instead of upgrading later?
Anyone know if the contract with Versus is up soon?!?!?!?! (Ironically, I last switched to DTV because DISH dropped Versus back then!!)

Versus isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
"Belligerent and numerous."
Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ
AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

As long as you left your previous dish account with no balance and left it Voluntary you will get all new customer promo's
W/24mo Contract ( Assuming your credit qualify's )
$15/mo X 12/mo
Service Plan ( Former DHPP ) Free 6/mo
Free HBO/Show 3/mo
First Receiver at no cost, 2nd and 3rd at discounted price.
Get a 722(k) rcvr even if you only have 1tv. Yes a 612 is a nice rcvr but you wont pay anymore for a 722 as your first rcvr and you get optional TV2 Output or if you dont use that you get PIP where as the 612 does not have it. Yes they still have UHF remotes.
