It depends on when you started. Mine will run out soon. I have seen reports of some being able to renew it.jason williams said:Has the $10 HD access fee that was waived for 2 years started yet? Is there any way to get out of paying it? I will have to downgrade my service to make up for this if it starts again. Is the $54.99 entertainment package available?
At one point there was an HD Technology fee. I saw references to this in 2011.You might not actually see it on the bill, but unless something changed, they charge $17 per HD DVR."jason williams" said:I think I will switch to comcast or dish because they don't rip you off for this fee to pad your bill..Even directv does not charge new customers for life for this..It is a way of ripping off their most loyal and long time customers.
You may not see it as a separate line item on a comcast or dish bill, but you're still paying it.....jason williams said:I think I will switch to comcast or dish because they don't rip you off for this fee to pad your bill..Even directv does not charge new customers for life for this..It is a way of ripping off their most loyal and long time customers.
Me too. It looks like those who got it when it was first offered (2 years ago), as long as they maintain the same conditions, should receive an email confirmation soon with a 2 year "renewal" of the hd access fee being free.jimbop99 said:I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to let everyone know that I just received an email automaticly renewing my 2 years of free HD. Wow!
I just got that too, but not sure it is a renewal of the free HD. I believe a few months ago, someone else posted about this and received word that it was just a marketing e-mail stating that we have the 2 year free HD promo. It turned out that the marketing department was a little behind the times in getting the e-mails out.Scott Kocourek said:Ditto, that was a pleasant surprise.
That's because the "HD Fee" is spread out so that all DISH customers pay for it with higher monthly prices, higher DVR/Receiver fees, etc. It's in there, you just don't see it.harsh said:With respect to DISH, you pay the same monthly fees whether you have HD or SD.
