I just received a flyer from Windstream (my telephone utility) offering lifetime pricing on a bundle of unlimited phone service, high speed internet and dish service. The prices given for the Dish service part of the bundle is America's top 120 $39.99, Top 200 $54.99 and top 250 $64.99. This assumes one receiver and no locals. I can't believe that a satellite service can go more than a year or two without increasing prices. What is the catch? :confused:

AN OLD GEEZER WHO REMEMBERS THE DUMONT TELEVISION NETWORK AND IT'S TOP RATED "CAPTAIN VIDEO AND HIS VIDEO RANGERS", TV NEWS ANCHORMEN WEARING HATS DURING THE NEWSCAST, ONLY 180 SECONDS OF COMMERICALS EACH HALF HOUR, 3 STATIONS ON THE AIR WITH THEIR TEST PATTERNS AIRED FROM 2 TO 3PM, PROGRAMMING FROM 3PM TO 11:30 AND SIGNING OFF AT 11:30PM. HOW COULD I FORGET THE SINGLE FRAME VERTICAL ROLL WHEN THE STATIONS SWITCHED FROM NETWORK TO LOCAL OR LOCAL TO NETWORK AND THE TIME TONE ON THE HOUR.

Seems legit, although the offers I see on the Windstream website specify "DISH America" packages.

Conditions:
http://www.windstrea...Conditions.aspx
"DISH channel lineup, including number of channels, is not guaranteed and subject to change without notice. DISH bundle is subject to Windstream continuing its relationship with DISH."
"First-time DISH Network customers only. Offer ends 9/28/10.Lifetime price guarantee for DISH America programming valid for Windstream customers only."
