Dish Network Complaint - Beware of "Free Gifts"
THE VILLAGES, FLORIDA -- I am totally sick and tired of all the deceptive advertising these people spew out to existing customers. The come-on says FREE GIFT for YOU! HD FOR LIFE! This is simply untrue. The "LIFE" refers to the life or your current contract and then ONLY if you renew for another 2 years AND agree to paperless Billing AND agree to their Autopay plan or pay them an additional $99 for their "FREE GIFT". These are all great deals for Dish Network but it is not any deal for you, their customer. Recent research has now published that there is on average, a commercial every 4 and 1/2 minutes on television. I find it hard to believe that I am paying over $100 per month to watch thousands of commercials. In the beginning, cable TV offered pay TV so you could avoid the commercials. I challenge any creative business person to come up with a pay per view system that offers excellent commercial free programs for a reasonable cost. It is less expensive for me to go to the theater to watch a movie than to pay for a Dish Network VOD Movie at $6.99. My response the their so called "FREE GIFT" was to put me back on "paper billing" and manual payment. I would suggest that other customers who are sick of getting ripped off do the same.
