    Dish was willing to install a 4k joey and keep at same price and there would be no charge as I was starting another contract. However, after many calls couldn't get Dish to let me install rather than Dish install. Our concern is the Covid virus and just couldn't afford to risk that over 1 4K joey in a bedroom. I suppose if I bought one myself and installed it I would be out about 100 bucks. Any comments or ideas?

    $100 vs potential COVID problems … I would choose spend the money

    I have a lot of expensive equipment and I don't want some installer messing with it, so I have always purchased everything and installed it myself. $100? That is little to pay for peace of mind especially with COVID.

    Is the Joey 4K replacing an existing Joey ? If so, I can't see why the requirement for a tech visit.

    I have a lot of expensive equipment, too, but installing a Joey wouldn't get the installer anywhere near it.

    Why not wait for 4K content if DISH ever carries more than a sampling?
