    Drop the service plan unless something is wrong with your system. You can find plenty of posts here of people who add it back when they think they are going to need service for some reason. I've never had it and am way, way ahead of the game.

    By the way, what channels do you want from 250 that aren't on 200?

    WOW, you grouse about a $4 increase.

    There are many others here who would love to have only gotten a $4 increase.

    I have multiple Duo DVRs with AEP. My increase was ridiculous and pure gouging.

    They offered a paltry credit for six months (less than two receiver fees).

    I canceled.

    You might want to pay a bit of attention to what other providers are upping their prices this year as well. $4 is just about equal to Direct, Comcast...

    OK, I'll bite. When I go to drop DHPP in another couple of weeks for "greater than 30 days" if I get dinged $25, I'll put "ColdSteel is always right, I should never question him" in my signature for a month.

    If I don't, and I'm right, you have to put "Rasputin is always right, I should never question him" in YOURS for a month.

    Deal?

    hate to say it but if you added the Service Plan ( Former DHPP ) AFTER Feb 1st. you Will be hit for a $25 downgrade charge if you have had it for 1 day or for 2 years ( not possible i know since it only started feb 1st. ) but this has been asked many times on our side and has been confirmed there is no "roll off" date for the removal penelty.

    Only if you've added it after 2/1. If you had it prior to 2/1, you get one free drop. Drop it, re-add it and wait 31 days, then I'll happily take this bet.

    But, only the 'C' is capitalized... :grin:

    I just have the 722K. Officially the bill only went up $1, but the $3 DVR package credit went away, so I ended up with a $4 increase

    It looks all lowercase to me.:)

    I wouldn't be surprised to find DISH charged the $25 after 30 days, or that some memo circulated that it would. It certainly wouldn't be the first time they publicly stated something in Terms and Conditions fine print that isn't true. I wouldn't want to bet either way, even though the Terms and Conditions seem pretty clear (to me at least). It does NOT say you won't be charged $25 after 30 days - just that you will before 30 days. Not a huge leap, but if I were charged after 31 days after reading T&C, I'd be pissed.

    Or are you saying that you have to Add it after 1-Feb, Drop it, Add it again down the road and THEN there is no 31 day no charge after one free drop has been used?

    Nice! This is getting brought up. To be honest Daryl and Daryl will prob fix it then. :nono:

    *EDIT* I was informed that they are getting ready to upload a updated version of the ToS for the Service plan and since it hasnt been 30 days yet, everyone falls into a charge at the moment but before 3/1 it should be updated.

    **Unconfirmed** all info is given as a reference and not legal advice.

    Looks like they finally added the $14 charge for my second 322. :( This means my bill officially went up $9 which is over 15%. Of course they are giving me a $5 credit for 6 months since I'm such a great customer. This pretty much negates the adjustments and ClubDish credits that I have. Thanks Dish.

    Monthly Charges
    Mar 09 - Apr 08 America's Top 200 With Locals 52.99
    Classic Silver 200 With - Adjustment -5.00 This is for a ClubDish credit I never received.
    Duo Receiver 14.00
    $ 61.99
    Other Charges and Credits
    Feb 11 ClubDISH Cr 1 of 12 - Adjustment -5.00 Not sure why this says 12 months?
    Feb 16 Receiver Credit 1 of 6 - Adjustment -5.00
    $ -10.00
    Taxes
    Feb 24 State/Local Tax (Sales/Gross Receipts) 1.33
    Total AutoPay on Mar 16, 2010 $ 58.37

    Interested in hearing RasP...I added it also in order to upgrade to 1000.4 dish in order to get new channels, I plan to drop DPP as well on day 31. I read language posted on this site and dec to use the DPP to upgrade in order to save the 99.00 charge.

    Oh and the increase in charges suck. I to am an everything pac + mult DVRs- I got bent over- credits do help, also called and b1tched, they gave me free prem movie pac for 3 months = 120.00 in addit credits...helps

    *I* certainly appreciate the unconfirmed into you guys post!

    Changing "it" on the web site by 1-Mar doesn't seem to me to allow DISH to charge RasputinAXP should he cancel after 13-Mar. Usually, DISH is allowed to change terms to suit them, but here it says:
    Just posting new terms doesn't seem sufficient (to me).

    But my bet is that D & D will just change the copy at
    /downloads/legal/ServicePlan.pdf
    and leave the "within the first thirty (30) days" standing at the identical copy:
    /downloads/legal/DHPPterms.pdf


    Unrelated, but the real reason I posted was to find out 2 things. Today I just went back onto Annual AT120 after getting hosed by a CSR in August that took me off annual to fix Platinum.

    1) CSR indicated that although locals were forced with monthly ATxxx, I had an option to get locals (@ $5.99!) or not get locals. Is an annual sub a way for someone that doesn't WANT locals to avoid them? I DO want them - this is a curiosity thing.

    2) Is there a general rule for who can't pay annually @ 11 times (package cost less $5)? Is it that DHP subs can't in their first commit, can't ever, some other situation??

    THANKS!

    It says 12 months because that's how long they initially said you'd get it. Even after they changed it to say 10 months ($50), I got $60 because those were the terms when I did my first ClubDISH. From Feb '08
    Feb 01 ClubDISH Cr 12 of 12 - Adjustment - 5.00

    I also had a weird name attached to a pair of 12 credits @ $5 for ones that never appeared until I used email to CEO. May '08 thru Apr '09, my bills had:
    DishDVR Advantage - You - Adjustment - 10.00

    I *think* doing a ClubDISH before they changed to 10 months leaves you still getting 12 months. But I haven't done a ClubDISH referral in a VERY long time!

    I just did the Club Dish and this is the 1st credit so I have no idea why they are giving me 12 months but I guess I won't argue with an extra 2 months.
