I had Dish installed 3 weeks ago with the understanding that I would be able to have my locals in HD via the Eastern Arc sats. I was going to wait or even keep my overpriced FIOS until I could get my locals. Two installers came to my house and told me that I could not receive locals due to LOS issues. Their supervisor was actually in the area and came over to my house to look for himself. After looking things over he said I could get my locals on the EA sats in a week or two. I then said that I would like to wait until the locals were actually on the EA. He assured me that the locals would be up and running on the EA in a matter of 1-2 weeks. Being trustful I told them it was OK to do the install because I did not want them to make the trip for nothing. These were employees of Dish Network, not a subcontractor. I am now getting the Dish Network two-step. They have no clue when or if my locals will be on the EA. In addition they told me that NO programming is guanteed but I have to pay my bill no matter what. Does this mean that if one or more of their sats stop working we all still have to pay them even if we are not receiving any broadcasts?? If anyone from Dish Network is monitoring these boards please feel free to contact me.
