Yeah, I had agreed to an 18 month commitment with a $300 early termination fee.

But... I talked to 6 different people, and had to call the legal department of Dish Network but in the end, it worked. They refunded my installation fee and dissolved my 18 month contract with dish network without charging me the $300 early termination fee. I had to argue my ass off. I was on the phone with this prick who said the following interesting things:

1. Have you tried using a regular air antenna? my reply: (Why the fuck should I have to strap some other ugly thing on the outside of my house, I already have two damn satellite dishes)
2. Where in your legally binding contract does it say that you will get local channels in HD? my reply: (There was no written contract presented at the time of agreement as it was EXPLAINED TO ME OVER THE PHONE BY YOUR IDIOT SALES REP)
3. We are going to charge the account you used for your last payment for $399 for the early contract termination. my reply: (Good, do that. And when I get my lawyer and sue your ass for breach of contract, how long do you think it's going to take for you to get fired for doing that?)
4. Well, what do you want me to do about it? my reply: (Get this shit turned off and out of my fucking house immediately.)

Long story short, no termination fee and I get the installation charges back so whatever. If anyone needs the number to Dish Corporate offices (the only ones who can release you from your contract) here it is: 1-888-241-2195. They're located in Denver, CO.

So now I have to call DirecTV and see what I can get there...

Re: F... Dish Network

Ok, I ordered the DirecTV. I hope it's all you guys say it is... I got 2 HD receivers, Sunday Ticket, the premium ticket package etc. They're running a promo right now where if you buy the Sunday Ticket, you get the rest of your programming free for those 4 months. So basically, you're getting the ticket for free, right? Also, I got a $100 online rebate and $50 gift card, along with free installation. I guess that's good... I'm really leery after dealing with Dish Network.

Sounds like a nice deal. Good luck!

Re: F... Dish Network

I have had both in the past, currently I have Dish Network. Where I live, BFE, I was able to bundle my phone, internet and tv all in one with DishNetwork. I get unlimited long distance and the works on my phone which is good for me and my wife as she is from Erie, PA. and can talk to her mom when ever she wants. That is really the only reason that I left DirecTV.

But not to worry I still get my skins games, I go to my cousins house and watch on his sunday ticket.

Bleed Burgundy, everyone is right about DirecTV. It is as good as they say. Also, after your contract is up with them call them and make as if you are going to leave their service for DishNETWORK and they will give you free programming for like 3 or 4 months to get you to stay. That is what my cousin did when I switched over. They gave him HBO, SHOWTIME, and all the other movie channels for free for like 4 months just to keep him, when in all actuallity he had no intentions of leaving to begin with...

Re: F... Dish Network

Update: When I signed up online, my installation date wasn't until 9/18

I called customer service this morning and rescheduled for tomorrow at 1 pm. I'll have it for the game on Sunday. I can't wait for the game.

I GTD. someday you will have this same fight with DirecTV. I was a customer of theirs for 10 years and left due to their horrible customer service.

Re: F... Dish Network

Thought I'd post a quick update. Sunday Ticket is amazing. I wasn't sure if I'd get all of the games in HD without buying the Superfan pack but so far I am. The service is good but what's with NFL Network not being in HD on DirecTV? Anyone know if that's one of the HD channels they're adding soon? I don't really like the Program Guide feature near as much as the one on Dish Network. The interface is kind of clunky and there's no option to create custom channel lists... (there was on Dish.) Overall though I'm very happy.

Also I just bought a 52" Aquos LCD which I'm putting on the wall tonight. So I feel like I'm getting a pretty good setup to watch the games.

BB, if you don't mind me asking, did you have to pay extra for the "Superfan Pak?"

I didn't get Superfan which is why I was surprised to see the games in HD. I think you do pay extra if you want that. You can see in a previous post how I got the package as part of that deal they're offering right now. Not to be dumb but are you scrolling down past the sd feeds to the second section with the HD feeds? I don't know why I would get it and not you... Let me know.

I didn't subscribe to the SuperFan package either, but weekend before last I noticed I had the channel that displays multiple games on one screen. I thought that was an "extra" and wondered why I was receiving that channel as I didn't originally order that. When you mention "sd feeds," what is that specifically? If I scroll past the normal NFL Ticket channels (700's), do I have other options that relate to HD broadcasts or something? I'll look back at your previous posts to hopefully understand better, but like you, I recently recv'd upgrades from DirecTV that included among other things, the HD DVR. Yet, I only rec'v certain channels that are in HD (although I see where that will be expanded sometime soon).
