my next door neighbor. They just moved in and chose cable.
The installer gave me a brocher that offered $500 to current Dish or DirecTV
customers who switch. $350 one-time credit on the first bill, and followed
by $12.50 per month for the next 12 months. They just need a copy of the
current satellite statement. The only other requirement is subscribing to
their HDTV service with a HD DVR. No contract needed....
Can't say that I'm not tempted. However, I'm wondering if there's any kind
of counter offer that Dish will offer me to stay. Has anyone gotten anything
from Dish lately? Suddenlink's offer used to be just $200. Maybe they're
desperate or something?
Update: just got off the phone with a Dish agent. Now I feel kind of insulted...
She offered me a $5 credit. Yes, a one time $5 credit. I took it. (because
$5 is still money, right?)
