I'm very unhappy that Dish is forcing us to link our google accounts in order to use the voice remote. This is not what I paid for! It is none of Dish's business what my google account is, and it is none of Google's business what I watch on Dish! This 'partnership' is purely $$ driven. To say that they care about our privacy is a JOKE! If there was not a privacy risk, then there would not be a reason to 'agree to the privacy terms'.
If some people want to share with google, then let them.... but not all of us do!! I want my voice remote back the way it was... it's what was promised to me when I signed up and it's what I'm paying for. Shame on you, Dish!!
Of course I pay! I was sold a package. It is one of the features that I liked about the Dish service. It included a whole list of things, including a voice remote, that are part of the price I pay to have Dish service.
It's called "BAIT AND SWITCH"! it's also called "Bad Business"....no matter how you want to spin it.
You don’t pay and have never paid, for the voice remote feature. It is a completely complimentary feature...
That may be true but your Dish salesmen and installers use it as a way to sell the Dish Network. I believe I have also seen Dish commercials showing the voice remote to find a program. The commercial does not say you have to have Google Assistant to make it work.
