Dish Network will treat you as royalty until you sign a contract and they will make you a hostage after signing. This is the most one-sided service company I dealt with ever!
When your contract expires, you will need to pay out of your pocket to ship their equipment back. They do not maintain any dropp off locations anywhere. While they are overzealos to personally deliver the equipment upon signing, they expect you to return it at your cost. They are quick to threaten you with additional charges should UPS be late to deliver their equipment back.
By the way, they will charge your credit card even if you were being billed by mail. They cover their tail very well with no regard to your needs. If you experienced good service from any company which went above and beyond for you as a customer, DO NOT expect such treatment from Dish Network. They are mean spirited and hide behind "guidelines".
They made those extremely one-sided guidelines and will continually hide behind them as if they were handed down by G-D.
The bottom line is: for your peace of mind, STAY AWAY FROM DOING BUSINESS WITH DISH NETWORK. There are many other providers who will treat you with respect and provide better value for your hard earned money.
