DISH Announces Extension of iPad Promotion Through 2014 
 



DISH enhances promotional offer with choice of popular iPad Mini

Promotion gives new Hopper customers the power to watch TV anytime, anywhere

 

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Beginning Jan. 17, DISH Network L.L.C., a subsidiary of DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH), will extend its promotion offering qualified new subscribers the choice of an iPad® instead of first-year programming discounts for customers who sign up for the Hopper® with Sling® Whole-Home HD DVR and a qualified programming package. As part of the extension, DISH will now offer customers the enormously popular iPad Mini, which is lighter, slimmer and easier to carry than the tablet previously featured in the promotion.

"People are on the go more than ever and it's critical DISH provides a service that fits into their lives," said James Moorhead, chief marketing office of DISH. "With the combination of the Hopper, our acclaimed mobile apps and now our free iPad Mini offer, DISH provides the industry's best mobile video experience."

Last month DISH announced its updated DISH Anywhere™ app for iOS devices. Among the enhancements is the integration of the Hopper Transfers feature, giving customers the ability to view recorded content when no Internet connection is available.

About The Promotion
The Hopper and iPad Mini offer requires activation of new qualifying DISH service with 24-month agreement and credit qualification. Monthly DVR and receiver fees apply. All prices, fees, packages, programming, features, functionality and offers subject to change without notice. To qualify, customers must select the Hopper system and minimum of America's Top 120 package. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. This offer cannot be combined with promotional pricing. Offer not available in Puerto Rico or USVI. Activation fees may apply. Visit www.dish.com for more details.

This seems like a no-brainer to continue... it helps lock people to Dish if they get used to using the iPad for the Dish Anywhere stuff... and it sounds like the deal probably works out to not cost Dish very much since you don't get some of the other new subscriber discounts if you choose to take the iPad.

It would just make sense to buy ipad directly from retailer, rather than free (not really free paying regular package price plus fees) from Dish, or get it through eBay for reduced price then sign up for programming discounts
