So I have been with Dish now for many years and all I get for this is Old out dated equipment ( that I still pay almost $15 each month) and a huge bill. At this point after reducing our service twice to manage the bill Im ready to just chuck the whole deal and use another service..
At $15 a month this agged equipment has probably been paid for 10 x over. You would think to keaep older customers Dish would offer them some incentives. You have nothing for us just a $15 equipment charge and a $9 protection plan that never gets used.
What a Scam....
There might be a way to lower your bill (unless you choose to have sports which costs more) - contact one of the Dish reps (names in orange) by PM, don't bother with calling. Dish won't offer, you have to ask - they've posted here several times that they will check your account for discounts if you contact them.
When I switched to Flex last year my bill dropped by a substantial amount, all depends on what channels are most important to you.

Sadly our bill has increased by $40 per month over that time, and we still have the same equipment from way back then. I see new promotions with my tv package and new equipment and free items and think, "Why do I have to call and wait forever to beg a rep, that doesn't really care if I leave or not, to upgrade my stuff or try to make account changes to bring my bill back down when I've been a loyal and trouble free customer for a decade?" Why shouldn't I just go to the competitor for their introductory rates? Is this really what these companies want us to do every two years?
