Dish Network Complaint - Loss of Programming - Satellite 119
I live in California. DISH Network uses Satellite 119 and 110 for programing. For all of us who have DISH Network TV we now know why we have lost half our programing. DISH has cut expenses by not using Satellite 119 during the day or evening. It kinda comes-in after midnight. Of course maybe a million subscribers lost half the programing they pay for. DISH is trying to squeeze more on to Satellite 110 which resulted in wavy over-lapping channels. Guess who has to pay a DISH contractor to come-out and reset the dish signal?
YOU, the subscriber must pay $99. or if you have insurance, $29. to have your DISH reset because DISH Network is saving cost by not using Satellite 119.
AND, for many, you will have to have another DISH antenna placed by the other one to get your local channels and you get to pay for the extra DISH also. Monthly programing fees DISH is cheaper than Direct TV but the poor service and additional cost make DISH Network far more expensive than Direct TV. I have eight more months to complete the 18 month contract I foolishly signed. I have heard how hard it is to cancel and get credit for returned equipment. I'll find out in 8 months.
