    Had 3 installed yesterday main reason was that dish rep said icould set timer for on demand movies over internet. I have hughes and want to down load during bonus time 2-8 am can't find timer tried with vod today no timer came up movie started and ate up my allowance. Now what do I do? Thanks Jerry

    I'm not aware of any way to schedule the On Demand downloads... as far as I know they get triggered when you "order" them.

    Tried to post earlier today. Contacted dish 're this and that rep and installer said there was a timer. After a 1 hr. Chat I was able to get the monthly up charge for receiver to be removed due to misrepresentation. The only reason I got this was for the non exsistant timer. Hope they fix that soon.Does Dish satellite internet have the same 15 gig per month limit? Thanks Jerry

    I don't know about bandwidth limits or anything for the Dish satellite offering. Honestly, I never looked into it since I have a couple of better options around here for broadband that don't have bandwidth limits so it never was of interest to me to check. I think some of the satellite-delivered Internet services do have bandwidth caps, though.

    I think you can buy higher limits, just costs you more per month.

    I know I can buy more band width. The whole reason for getting the 3 with the promised (but non exsistant timer) was so I could download during bonus time 2-8 am without having to stay up all night! This not needing to make purchase!

    Just found out my dish sat internet option is hughes where I live. I am back to no options again. Seems like a circle .... to me. Will need to stay up all night until dish fixes 3 options for vod.

    You can probably get DishNet, although its the same as Hughes, cheaper. Also, bundling gets your $10 off your Dish bill and Epix movie channels free for a year. Most areas can get 15/50 for $79.99 or 10/50 for $59.99. $10.00 modem lease applies. Some areas have a 50/50 option for $79.99.
