Dish Network Informative - Service Calls
Dish Network will give you one free service call. After that, they charge $49.99 UNLESS you pitch a big fit, which I did. Seems to me that if the signal is not there, it must be a Dish problem. On the 3rd service call, which I did not pay for (but was told adamantly that they would NEVER service my dish again without charging me), they said that I had faulty part and it would take one week for them to get it. Yes, I had no service for a week. When the repairman came to the house, I said, "OH, the part came in?" and he had no idea what I was talking about. However, he did fix the dish perfectly and I have not had one problem since. When I complained about no service for a week, they credited me for a month.
