Default dish network sucks

dish network really sucks, both in quality and in costumer support.
Just tried to watch the expendables, the picture was completely messed up and very choppy, their customer support was robot telephone machine, then some dude who talked way to quiet and didn't know what to do. I am extremely dissatisfied

Agreed, I had it for awhile back in '07 I had nothing but problems. The picture was always "digitized" and the voices never match the lips. It was delayed like 1/2 a second, just enough to irritate you!

They sent me a new box, then said the old box I sent back was "physically damaged" and charged me $300. I fought like hell with them, I told them how do they know it wasn't damaged during the return shipping....?

I'm not that impressed with cable either, but for the price you can't beat it. With cable we are getting tv and internet for $40/month. Now that is basic tv but for some reason the cable card lets us get all channels but movie channels. So I don't complain.

But try and get interent thru a dish, its insanely priced.

I always see commercials down here for them talking about the excellent customer service too. I am just waiting for Fios to get to my area.

Well I used to have Directv for a good year and loved it. Loved it just until they took away my favorite channel of all times, G4. I love that channel, family does too even the little ones. I mean you would expect the little ones to watch Spongebob or something but G4 lol. They took it away because they couldn't come up with an agreement with the network so they just took it off there programming for good. So I decided to go with Dish Network for that reason and that it was a tad bit cheaper than Directv. For now, I do not see any problems with the service, network coverage or customer support. I can complain with the installation setup. The guy took so long to do everything that I was literally telling him what to do and where to put it at. But after that, the coverage is great (having waterfront house) and oh, I have the G4 channel yeay! Never called customer service but a lady did come up to take pictures of the dish and box and coverage signal to make sure everything was okay. The lady was real nice. She sat down and talked to us about our house and Christmas decorations and everything. I was impressed there. The DVR recording is a pain in the ass to control but we'll get used to it. I already miss Directv but they don't have my channel and can't go to cable because one it's expensive down here and two, nothing HD for our TV's. So we will see how things go with Dish but overall as of now, I'm liking it

----------

PS. Sorry for the long post; had to put down my two cents

yea my fiance's parents have it...they were one of the test areas when it first came out. i live in an apt right now so i don't think it is even possible. Don't they have to run new wiring for it?? I am stuck with Time Warner for a year anyways, not sure what the break contract price is.

I had cable services for many years and also had many issues. I switched to DishNetwork about two years ago and I have to say that I like it. Never a problem, good service (so far), and have no complaints. I guess it's like ice cream, some people like vanilla, some people like chocolate...I happen to like chocolate!
