Unfortunately, Dish Network specifically targets elderly people as new customers. For example, they will offer service for $19.99 per month to hook them in without explaining that the price is just for a limited time, other cost like receiver lease fees, DVR service, and phone connection fees.
Seniors on a fixed income end up getting a bill for something like $86 instead of the $19.99 that they were told their bill would be. Many times seniors simply cannot afford to pay their tv bill and end up cancelling service.
Dish will send out a huge bill for cancellation fees that customers can't pay and they end up in collections and a bad credit rating.
