is it possible to postpone dish service to try out another one like playstation vue or directv now. i am paying $100 for flex package, locals, dvr service, kids pack, dish protection, wireless joey and super joey. I just want to be sure before dropping dish that my family would enjoy another service besides dish. for $60 i can get more channels on ps vue than i get with dish. and play them on all my devices with out extra fees.
You can put your account on hold - however, you're probably in a 2 yr contract so it will cost you to go to another service. If you put your account on hold I think you lose any discounts you might be getting, be sure to do your research first.
You can 'suspend' service for a time, but it does not cancel your contract. What it does cancel is any incentives you may currently have. It's also not free, I believe something like $5-10/month, and no, those months do not apply towards your contract period.
So 'literally' the answer is yes, but the way you mean it, functionally the answer is no.
maybe i should get rid of superjoey. i also am experimenting with getting a tablo receiver or hdhomerun for locals. recentley i got a free 5 day free trial of ps vue and its good. no extra charges for DVR but no locals yet.
