I didn't take the op as being harsh. I have seen a few posts of people who bought their equipment but it shows as being owned by Dish. And while they do ask for the LNB they will accept you can't get to it. The OP may not have known that. If Dish said there was no refund I don't blame someone complaining about that.

And I know I am right. I bought it from Dish themselves. I remember clearly when the website suddenly went from "owned" to "leased" after one of their website "redesigns". I called, they told me not to worry that it was a "glitch". I've never had to pay a leased equipment fee for it.


Just so you know... the lease rental fee is the same as an additional outlet fee for owned receivers. I forget what they call the fee.

Basically... the first receiver (primary) on your account is free, whether you own or lease... Additional receivers cost additional per receiver, again whether you own or lease.

So... your bill is the same whether you own or lease... thus, the price of your bill is actually not an indicator of owning vs leasing.

I found it interesting that when I used Dish mover, they never said or did a thing about the old dish. It still sits intact on my previous residence.

@psmith. You dont contact these departments, theres no "ERT" option in the IRV.
And in the case of EVT they generally contact you (these are the guys who handle accounts that have broken there TOS and set up Dish at more then 1 house per account).

@Stewart, its just called a receiver fee :P
@Sregener, its more cost effective for Dish, to leave them behind and potentially piss off future HoA's :P

Direct wanted my TiVo back years ago and I told them that I owned it. They checked and finally agreed with me. It's nice to keep any decent receiver, especially when you own it! I'd call back and ask for a copy of the contract you signed. That should have all of the equipment that they provided vs. what you bought.

Except DISH will never ask for your TiVo back. :rolleyes:

Please link to rules. Otherwise we can only read your statements as "this is the way I think it should work".
