Dish Network Complaint - Dish Nightmare! - Dish Network service
PALATINE, ILLINOIS -- Had a contract for 2 years in April 2010, which I could not complete since I was moving and did not have any place to put a Dish. So, I called them and asked to put the account on hold thinking I could someday reconnect it before the 6 month hold was expired.
Instead, they asked for the equipment to be sent back and sent me a bill for $167.24 for early termination fee.
I have written & spoke to them many times and I just keep getting threatening bills. It's not worth my credit but I am not going to pay them. I am not in a position to pay them even if I wanted to. I have since moved again and I know that even if I did reconnect the account they would put more fees in there. So I am just letting it go to collections and taking the credit hit. Hopefully it won't be for long.
Also when I had them they set it up incorrectly and I didn't get HD channels that I was supposed to even though I was supposed to be paying, and it went out frequently when there was any type of precipitation, wind or cloud cover. I don't recommend them.
