6 months ago I changed to dish network from ATT because I was so thoroughly disgusted with Time/Warner and ATT. Turns out these guys are even worse.
When I signed up with promises of upgrades rivaling ATT's DVR Services they never mentioned that you had to buy the recievers though they call it an upgrade. Dish believes that getting the new account is more cost efficient then keeping their currrent customers. How wrong they are.
Dish is actually offering the Hopper DVR free for the new customer and expecting a $200.00 upgrade charge from their current customers. My bill averages $150.00/Month its a 150.00+ they will not be getting anymore.
