A very unhappy new customer😡
Welcome to the ho hum support from Dish network.
Despite some things you will be told, you have to keep after them to get anything taken care of.
Hello, Newbie1961. We definitely don't want to start off on the wrong foot with a new member such as yourself. Our remotes do work on a majority of television, but there are some models that to will not work with. I would be happy to see if we can get the remote paired to your TV, and see how we can get equipment that you're satisfied with. Can you send me a Private Message with your phone number and 4-digit PIN please?

welcome aboard new customer.....
I've been a loyal customer for several years and when my receiver failed, Dish greedily informed me that they would be charging me $15 to ship me out a new one!
Never mind that their equipment caused me to be without the service I pay them to receive for days.....
Just smile and say "thank you Dish" and it will hurt less....
