How do you order online and get two Hoppers without selecting a bunch of TVs? I want two Hoppers and two Joeys.
Work with a local reseller. You'll know with whom you're dealing with and can supply a face to a phone number.
Please PM me with additional questions and I would be happy to provide you the answers. You should be able to have 2 Hoppers and 2 Joeys installed. Please let me know. Thanks.
In answer to statement 2: all Joeys and Hoppers above the first Hopper (included with the programming package) are $7 per month. The same would apply to the Hopper/Joey as far as my statement on activation/deactivation of leased and owned receivers.
I answered question 3 in the earlier post. Thanks.
I PM'd you Ray. Hopefully you can answer all my questions. Thanks
I've been doing a lot of research and am about to make the move. But I need to figure out what my total monthly cost will be. I'm going for the AT250 package with Hopper and 3 Joeys. Besides the promotion price of $39 a month for the first year, what other charges will there be per month?
Direct charges quite a few and I just want to be prepared.
It should be $10 for the DVR and Multi-Room Viewing and $21 for the lease of the 3 Joeys in addition to the subscription fee you noted.
i would go with 2 Hoppers and 2 joeys if i was you.
same monthly fee
I'm going to call them today and see how much it would be. I'll post back with the price I get. I'm going for 2 Hoppers, 2 Joeys and the AT250.
They said it'd be $75 for the first year and about $30 thereafter. The lady also said I'd probably just have to pay $99 for the additional Hopper. I'm pretty sure the DirecTV isn't costing $105 but I'll have to double check on that. Their call center is LOUD, I could hear multiple phone calls in the background. It makes TWCs sound good. Now I just need to call DirecTV and see if my contract (which it is) is up so I can cancel it.
I just had a chat with a customer service rep at Dish. They told me there is no charge for a Hopper per month, and $7 per month for each Joey. Is that right? Would be great if true. I just have a hard time believing that....Please confirm.
The FIRST receiver, whether it be a Hopper or a traditional receiver, is free. Additional receivers are charged.
If one has two hoppers one will pay $7 per month for the second hopper (plus $7 per month for each Joey).
So to get my total monthly charge for first year I just add however many extra receivers (Joeys) I have to the package price and that's it...correct? Any more "hidden" charges I should know about?
Thanks for the info.
There are about $10 more in monthly charges, plus tax ... plus if you want more than one Hopper or more than three Joeys there are additional one time fees.
I'm curently with DTV and was wondering if Dish helps you to get out of the contract with DTV. I had Dish up until 1/15/12 and went with DTV but Dish had more basic HD content. I never had any problems with Dish at all. I know that DTV used to give and $200 gift card to get out of the Dish contract. Thanks for the answers.
According to the DIRT rep on this forum, they won't. Too bad. I would have switched months ago -- and found myself exceedingly angry with the whole AMC thing. Perhaps there is a purpose to everything.
I'm feeling reallly dumb at this point. Still trying to get my total charges per month if I switch from Direct to Dish. I really like the idea of the Hopper, and I think I'll save money per month even after the first year. So, if I'm going to get the Top 250 package I will pay $39.99 a month for the first year. If I get a Hopper and 3 Joeys, how much will I add to my bill to get the total (not counting tax)? Is it $21 total or $31 total more per month. (Is there a $10 per month Whole House DVR charge)? Other than that, am I leaving anythin else off? I currently have Choice Xtra Classic and HBO with 2 HD DVRs at Direct. I also have the HD package and pay for the service plan. My total bill there is $105 a month after discounts.
Also, after the first 3 months at Dish I will have to pay for a movie service. How much do they charge for HBO, Showtime or Starz a month?
Sorry for so many questions. I just want to have all my ducks in a row before I make the change.
You would be much better of with 2 Hoppers and 2 Joeys. The box fees would be the same - $6 DVR fee, $4 Whole home fee, $7 x 3 for additional boxes = total fees of $31. As anew customer, you should get HD free for life. There is also a Blockbuster/HD package for $10 that includes a group of HD only channels, Blockbuster video and one DVD at a time by mail. Look on the website for HBO charge after freebies.
I just switched today from DirecTV (9 years) to DISH.
So far I'm liking the Hopper and Joeys.
Much better response times than my old HRs.
