DishNetwork.com Complaint - DishNetwork snakepit full of liars and thieves
LITTLETON, COLORADO -- I answered an ad in the Sunday paper to get "24mo HD 120 channels for $24.99 per month" placed by an agent of dish called satellitesystemsnetwork.com. After the 2d billing, dish raised the monthly price by $5, also putting on other programming than the contracted for 120 channels, without my requesting any such programming change and then tried to charge $5 to STOP the unrequested programming (they are hoping you will forget to tell them 30days before the end of the "free" period so they can hit you for another $40-$60 per month for such repetitive crap as SHO/HBO, STARZ, etc). I am in a running fight, have not paid the 3d month's bill (I was ripped off by someone else for $400 for tickets in Philly [I live in Az] & so closed the account I had set up the autopay for dish on) and will not pay them another cent until they abide by the terms advertised. NB: Dish paid $6million to 46 states' Atty Generals in 2009 for just these types of fraudulent marketing & deceptive trade practices. If you decide to get dish or cable or directTV, read EVERY word of the contract BEFORE SIGNING & you will probably find fine print that allows them to charge you anything they want; if you sign, scratch out the parts you don't agree with on the "contract" and you will be in a stronger position when do inevitably raise your price & whack you for fees. I am giving up on any and all of these RICO corporations.
