That means I would have to upgrade and get locked into another 2 years. Just finished getting some promotional credits that Dish used to lower my bill for a few months so now back up to a high cost each month. Maybe time to move on after 18 years with Dish. It seems the only way to save money is to periodically switch providers to take advantage of new customer offers.

You don't have to switch or upgrade, however if you wanted Alexa support, it requires upgraded hardware. To the best of my knowledge, Dish is the only provider that currently offers Alexa support.

Last time I upgraded to the Hopper, I either had to pay for the receiver or commit to 2 years. Isn't it the same now if I wanted the Hopper 3?

Many customers have to pay for an upgrade as well as commit to a new 2 yr agreement, it all depends on your account. Only way to know for sure is to ask one of the reps (names in orange) to see what you qualify for - never hurts to ask.
