Dish Network Informative - Be sure to understand what you are signing up for
I signed up for a $24.99 12 month program, only to end up with a $54.99 bill after 6 months, service plan credit of $6 ended after 6 months. The service plan insures that my equipment works properly and protects me from having to pay for the equipment if it fails. I have to replace two remotes already and am currently having trouble with another. I am paying $14.00 a month for a second receiver which I understood to be free, however it was only the installation of the receiver that was free. Not the equipment required to obtain the dish signal. Now they have raised their rates by $5 a month. I understood I was locked in to a two year program, only to find out that they can raise rates whenever they want. Where is the lock? I thought I would be reducing my TV bill only to pay more now than when I was with cable.
