Can someone please help me with upgrade from 722 to 722k? I want the dual OTA tuner.

I am currently "leasing" the 722 based on 2 year committment, which ended over a year ago. When I called Dish and asked about an upgrade to the 722k, they say that there is no mechanism to do so, and the only alternative is for me to purchase a 722k.

Are there other options? Is it necessary for me to cancel and restart service, or should I be able to get them to agree to another "lease" and 2 year committment? It is hard to get a handle on the delays and costs involved, and Dish is not very forthcoming with such details. Also, what happens if my current 722 dies? Am I faced with the same options?

What language is needed to get a replacement? I do not participate in the protection plan.

Never settle for just one answer,escalate the question,in other words ask to speak to Dish's Loyalty Department.If their answer isn't satisfactory to you,then you would need to purchase the receiver,or sign up for DirecTV,and if you have to leave be sure to tell them why your leaving DISH.Good Luck!:)
