I think the remotes wear out WAY too fast. We bought one less than a year ago and now half the buttons are unresponsive. Is there any kind of warranty on the remotes? Also, they are over priced.
A TV remote is like any other electronic piece of equipment. You can get a lemon that lasts 6 months or one that lasts forever. TV remotes are readily available on Ebay.
Perhaps, but this is the third one we’ve had to buy in two years and I’m talking about the Dish remote that costs $25 plus shipping of $10.00,not just a tv remote. So we didn’t just get a lemon. They need to make them last longer and have some freaking quality control. They probably cost fifty cents to make. It’s bad enough we have to pay outrageous rates for programming, over half of which we don’t watch and don’t want, but then the cheap crappy remotes quit working after e few months. Streaming services are looking better and better.
They cost $25.00 plus shipping, which makes them $35.00 in total. When the cheap flimsy thing’s buttons won’t work after three or four months and you have to pay yet another $35.00 that gets expensive. Especially after paying through the nose for a whole bunch of channels 50% of which I don’t want, but have to pay for to get a handful of channels I do want to watch. I know they’re cheap flimsy things that likely cost Dish about $1.50, but c’mon they should make them last longer. I’ve seen better built things come out of a Cracker Jack Box or in a happy meal at McDonald’s for gods sake.
