What Dish plans for Puerto Rico on this issue?. We have access only to 110 and 119 but 129 has no footprint here nor USVI, there are over forty (40) HD channels that we cannot see but we pay the same rates on all AT's. 


Simply, it is not fair.


Any news?

There are no updates that we can provide.  Although customers did receive signal from 129 in PR in the past, it was never officially supported.

I agree it's not fair.

Why do you think I had my 5 receivers deactivated and went from AEP/Multi-sport/HBO/SHO/STARZ/CINEMAX downgraded to one receiver (no receiver fees of 17.00) to AT120.  My bill went down from 203.00 to 62.00.  In addition to that I got an powerful yet small outdoor omnidirectional antenna that picks up 47 channels some of which pick up some HD like PBS/PBS Kids/Local Affiliate, Univision, NBC NY and more.  Picture quality is just AWSOME.


I just got tired of all of it.  The reason I left one of 6 receivers active was because of no receiver fees and to prevent loosing my EHD content.  To top it off I was able to keep HD Free for Life at no charge.


DISH did not have the kindness of letting us use 61.5 which has a small dish capacity for us to receive.


You can either pay for what you don't receive or downgrade/cancel.  DON'T SIT AND WAIT because nothing will change.
