  • Dish unlocks and reprograms my reciever

    after talking with dish again we are about to stop their service. We come home and the company has unlocked the channels that we have programed locked and hidden. Now as far as I can see the receiver is in my house and I pay the bill each month so if I lock out channels that I don't want to see what right do they have unlocking them. This sounds like a job for a lawyer!!! What is next are they going to unlock the porn channels so my grand kids can watch them also? So lets see what they have to say about this on the internet.

  • Dish Has Owed Us $40 For Over 5 Mos.

    Dish who we had for over 18 years and had to go to another service when we moved and Dishes weren't allowed has owed us $40 for over 5 mos. and they have sent out checks to the wrong address when they new the correct new address and other issues. Every time they reissue a check it takes another 3-5 weeks to potentially receive. The last one was issued on 2/19 and they state it takes 2-3 weeks for it to go out. Today is 3/20 and I still don't have. All they want to do is research and start the whole process over again so maybe in 4 more weeks I will receive a check and if... More...

    i decided that for my uncles birthday, I would start him off with a sports package with a cable network. Comcast was a no go due to the previous resident having a bill owed. direct tv was a no go due to his credit. so i did some research (not enough apparently) and we found Dish. him myself and a agent from dish agreed on cable services for 4 tvs 2 are hd ,sports package with movie channels & internet for a bill total of $67.83 a month & a $120.03 activation fee which was wonderful. with my uncle not having a debit/credit card i made the suggestion to have it withdrawn...

  • Dishonest selling tactics

    Dish network doesn't honor offers made. When they lost contract with Foxs new I switched to directv when I called to cancel services with Dish they offered me 300.00 gift card then $500.00 gift which it would cost to cancel directv. I told them I would think about it I decided to stay with Directv so called again to cancel this time I was offered $700.00. My bill for dish was due the next day so I asked if I cancelled and then changed my mind I'd the offer would still be good. She said yes so two days later I called and said I would take the offer of 700.00. They then said the... More...

  • Fraudulent Activity - 9601 S. Meridian Blvd. Englewood, CO 80112

    After I drove and I arrived at PG Plaza Mall yesterday, February 12, 2015, to pick up my sons' Nike boots, I received an email message on my Blackberry phone @ 6:45pm from DISH Network, thanking me for my recent payment of $ 395.87. I was flabbergasted after receiving this email because I didn't contact DISH Network and didn't make this payment. I immediately called the DISH representative and explained to him 6 times that I've driven to this mall and didn't make this payment. There is a fraudulent activity within your company because I was driving and... More...

  • Dish Network deceived and lied

    We had AT&T U-verse and they were no longer willing to keep our rate low after five years. I called Dish (and others), and each time was asked, "What channels do you watch"? I had a list of channels because I gave it to the other companies I was also shopping. Top of the list was The Lakers channel on Time Warner (had it with AT&T). After I told Albert the channels, he said, "Okay, that's no problem," and proceeded to give me the deal. The other feature I liked was Dish advertises the largest hard drive (2TB), which our large family needed. During the... More...

  • Dish Complaint

    I had Dish TV installed in May 2014 and signed a 2 year contract. They service is terrible. Everytime it rains the service goes out. Even just a drizzel and the service goes out. Kids can't watch TV when it's raining (call me crazy but that seems to be the time they should watch TV). I called Dish and they said that is normal and their is nothing they could do about it. So I made the decision to go with AT&T since they now offer fiber service now in my neighborhood. I canceled Dish. Now I have to pay a Termination fee of $300 because I signed a contract. I feel that... More...

  • Dish Network Trying to charge for early disconnect they promised to waive.

    DISH NETWORK TRYING TO CHARGE ME FOR SOMETHING NOT OWED. I got a shock this morning when my credit monitoring service notified me that I had changes to my credit file. It was a collection agency. I had to go online to get a contact number and when called, they told me it was DISH NETWORK. I have not had service with them for three years. They are trying to charge me $104.15 cent for early termination fees. I called DISH NETWORK about the bill. After being transferred three or four times, I spoke with ALEX FERRATT.

  • FOX News

    Since Charlie's message never changes, I assume that negotiations to get FOX news back on the DISH channel lineup continue to be stalled with no hope of resolution at any time in the foreseeable future. Since FOX NEWS is my favorite channel, I am lost without it. Worse than that, we agreed to pay for a service that has been taken away with no offer of an adjustment to our bill. We would like to cancel DISH and go back to cable. Even though DISH is in breach of contract, will we be held responsible for paying out what's left of our two-year agreement? I'm sure this question... More...

  • Extremely disappointed with DISH NETWORK!!!

    I have signed up with Dish a yr ago and it was the worst mistake I have done. Since the first day of installation till now, it has been a pain. We chose a program that had cartoons for our children. Upon installation, that program we chose did not have the cartoons and we had to go to the next package and pay more. I am having to call every month to find out how much I have to pay because the breakdown on the statements are always wrong and the amounts are different when I call in. On top of this we had cartoon network cancelled because of contract issues. My kids could not watch their... More...

  • Dish Network Bait and Switch

    On or abut 7/14/2014 I was advised by Ashly (employee #R9A) that I could pause the account on a vacation home each month for a fee of $5.62 plus tax plus the optional $8.00 equipment protection plan. My monthly bill should have been around $15.00. I have been charged additional fees each month that had not been explained to me by Ashly. My bill has been twice as high as Ashly had quoted. When I called DIsh Network to get them to honor the agreement I was told that they could not honor what Ashly had promised. I canceled my service the same day. More...

  • Poor Negotiations

    As a past subsriber of Direct TV (12 years) I never lost the channels because of negotiation as I have with Dish. I switched approx four years ago and at this time I am very sorry I made the switch. At this time my patience has been exhausted waiting for your settlement with FOX. Monday 1-05-15, if we do not have FOX at that time, Direct TV will be coming back in this household and your equipment for our four TV's will be returned. More...

  • The worst service I've ever had.

    When I cancelled I expected to get early termination fees because I ddidn't want to finish my contract. But I was double charged 546$ for unreturned equipment that they had received but had not put in the system yet. Then I had to spend 2 week's calling them every day to get them to return the money. And now I was just charged the $280 eearly termination fee 3 months after my service was cancelled in September. But every single customer service rep I talked with is a complete idiot, and told me a different story. In the process of filing charges, Have a... More...

    I just switched to Dish 3 months ago. I was a charter customer prior to the switch for 9 years. In the past 3 months CNN was blocked and now Fox!!! There are 3 channels that are musts for us... fox, CNN and CNBC... In the 9 years that we were charter customers we did not once had. To deal with blackouts like this... If fox is not turned on shortly, we will look at any opportunity to switch away from dish and will recommend to all of our friends to stay away from this service... More...

  • Sears Broken Washing Machine

    For the last several days we have had FOX news and its affiliated channels taken away. We just paid our $350.00 bill without greivance - however they are apparently not concerned that the customers who pay for their salaries are not receiving what they signed up for. I rely on Fox news for all of my news and feel incredibly cheated. Either credit your customers for the services they are no longer recieving or pay for them to move to DIRECT TV. This is simply put BAD BUSINESS. More...

    I have been with Dish Network for many years as a loyal customer. I heard last week that Dish Network would be dropping the Fox News Network from it's programming. I call at that time and was told by the customer service agent that they would NOT be discontinuing Fox News. Imagine my surprise this morning when I discovered that Fox News was no longer available to me. Why would you tell a customer one thing and do another? I called to talk to someone again this morning after 20 minutes on hold, that person had to pass me onto someone else. I HAVE NOW SPENT A TOTAL 45 MINUTES ON HOLD.... More...

  • Dish Network billing and price increases

    We got dish network because it was suppose to be way cheaper than direct tv and cable. We later upgraded to the hopper because we wanted to hook up extra televisions. Our bill was suppose to be free for the first year and a set amount for the 2nd year. We later upgraded to the hopper which was suppose to be a 12 dollar a month upgrade for each hopper or 24 dollars total. Our bill has skyrocketed to over 200 dollars a month, not counting our phone bill which is part of the bundle. I have called in 3 times now and asked for a copy of my bill so i can see why i am being way overcharged... More...

  • No Agreement with CNN folks

    If you cannot come to an agreed settlement, as a long time customer I would expect your company to use the money you were paying to the CNN (Turner folks)to provide a similar programming option to me since I am still paying the same price for less programs, or if you don't do that much for your dedicated customers then lower my monthly bill accordingly,since you are not providing all the services I originally pay for each month, or get better negotiators.

I emailed with a rep, they confirmed that my mailing address WAS correct, assured me I would get the bill in 7 to 10 days but to keep my service from being interrupted, I would have to pay the past due online, which I did. Two months later, I received another notification that if I didn't pay another past due payment my service would be interrupted....still no... More...

My parents are in their late eighties and don't use the internet. Found out that 2 down loaded movies from dish used up almost all of the bandwidth. This is outrageous.
