Before you jump ship take a more in depth look at DISH costs. DISH also has had just about annual price increases usually in the Feb-March time frames. They have also adjusted the fees for additional receivers so each additional receiver can cost you from $7-17 per month depending on what it is. Those low monthly fees are 12 month promotional offerings with a 24 month commitment. I have had both services and DISH can be cheaper depending on choices you make, but then again D* can also be cheaper depending on your choices.Simonjester said:5 years in a row of price increases from D*, I just was unwilling to pay what they wanted to charge for SD cable TV. Been a D* customer for 14 years, sad how they will give great deals to "new" customers but really stick it to existing customers. I could have called them and tried to negotiate a lower price as I have done for the past several years, perhaps upgraded to HD, but it was just time to move on.
