Dish Network Complaint - Dish Network Stinks - Installation and Billing
BUMPASS, VIRGINIA -- In June I signed up with Dish Network while out on medical leave. The installer ran three lines to mt electrical box and to the receivers. he did not bury the lines and left them lying on the ground beside my house. We had a storm and lightning struck the lines and blew my phone completely off the wall. Blew my television up and my VCR. They refused to get someone to come out. Not only to access the damage but to fix the problems. They cancelled my service twice after I made payments online and had confirmations and money taken out of my accounts. Then they tried to bill me credit card for the cancellation fee.
They called me three times at home while I was at work and asked them to call me here. I returned two of the three calls and they did not call back. I just incurred $220.00 in fees from the telephone company to fix my lines because Dish Network tamper with the box. Now I have to pay to have someone with electrical knowledge come out and disconnect the lines and patch the holes the made in my house when they installed. They did not honor my certificate for the $100.00 off of the installation as they said the disconnected my service for non payment. No one should ever sign up for service with them.
Direct TV may be higher but is much more reputable.
