I know exactly what you mean! I was one of those 'early' adopters of little dishes, and went with direct when they were only sold (not rented/leased). Cost me $800 for a single room system. After a few years, they were basically giving away 2 receivers to new customers (w/DVR). I asked if there was anyway I could get a 2nd rec (w/DVR) and the reply was "sure, for only $800 we'll set you right up". So I dumped them and went to dish-that was many years and monthly payments ago

(oh, and then I sold my Direct system on Ebay and got a pretty good chunk of change for it)

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.
