Nearly a year ago I entered into a 2 year contract with Dish Network. The plan I subscribed to was an Asian Channels package (Great Wall) thast was priced at $32.99 per month for 6 months, followed by $9.99 for 1 year, then 6 more months at $32.99.
We are still waiting for the reduced price. In addition, after calling Dish Network we were told that they were going to continue to charge us the $32.99 for the total of 1 year because they were losing money on the promotion. They said they would honor the $9.99 price per month for the remainder of the contract. We will see.
Meanwhile, this is not the first bait and switch promotion that I've expreienced with Dish Network. Three years ago they ran a similar promotion to give service for the first 6 months at a reduced rate. It took nearly 18 months for us to see the reduced rate, and then only after calling them regularly. In my opinion they are guilty of illegal trade practices and should be sue by the Feds under violation of Interstate Commerce laws.
Don't subscribe to Dish Network. I won't subscribe again.
