Questions about Dish
Posted 20 July 2014 - 09:57 AM
I see new customers get HBO and Showtime free for three months. Are they able to budge at all on this, to say six months? Or are they able to offer anything more than their initial promotions for new customers? Like even cheaper deals? I'm just not sure if I want to sign up with a tv service again, so obviously the sweeter the deal, the more likely I'll agree to a contract. Anyone have experience with negotiating even during the initial sign up?
Does Dish have MLB extra innings?
Anyone that has had both directv and Dish, are there any big differences between them? The channel selection looks mostly the same.

The channel selection is pretty much the same. Dish does not have MLB Extra Innings. I don't know about talking them down in price when signing up, can't hurt to try.
The last time I priced it out Dish was a little bit less expensive than Direct.

I feel like I'm being cheap by looking for discounts everywhere...but I'm not really desperate for having tv back, I'd really only do it if it works for me financially.

Yes Dish has a refer a friend program. You get $50 off your first bill and the person that refers you gets $5 off their bill for 10 months. Have your grandmother call Dish and request that they send her one if she doesn't already have some around the house (Dish tends to send them to their customers in the mail every so often).
