I signed up for the Dish Network free DVR deal with a 1 year commitment in September, 2003. At the time of the install I requested the local channel package and some international channels. I was informed that the local channels were not available in my area and was asked to pay $100 for a second dish for the international channels. Reluctantly I paid this. I called them last week to subscribe to a new international channel that is now available and they told me that I needed to get a Super Dish and that I would have to either pay approximately $200 for the dish or agree to extend my subscription commitment for a year from the date of installation of the Super Dish. I then asked them about local channels since they are now available and they told me that the local channels were also available only with the Super Dish and I would either have to pay for the dish or agree to extend my subscription commitment. It just seems wrong for Dish to do this, since I paid for the 2nd dish just 4 months ago. My understanding from reading these forums is that the Super Dish was available in September. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance.
