I signed on for a package with dish at a set price.1 month after service started my bill was larger than it was supposed to be.
I called and they said that under the contract i signed they were allowed to raise the price anytime they want, but that there was good news now they had raised the price it was locked in for 2 years. I was like what the heck isnt that what a contract does in the first place!! Dish didnt even let me get 6 months under my belt, they raised the price after just 1 month because they had a 2 year contract and i would just have to suck on it. They were sued over that scam and lost!
i found out to late though and am unable to benifit from it now!. I called and canceled my service on the date my contract ran out". They service rep asked me 6 diff times if i would take a deal to stay with them,each time i said no thank you.. They just would not cancel the dam thing|.
Then when they finally relented they said ok you need to send back your equipment, you need to go up and unscrew your dish eye and send it back|. I was like are you insane! Im not a cable man, im not going on the roof to unhook my dish that you installed! He said it is in your contract that you signed'.
My god! I have to take another look at that thing, i may have signed away my first born at this rate?. I have never heard of any company EVER making you unhook all of thier equipment and to MAIL it back at the customers expense! No local offices for drop off like other companies?.
What a ! "Go up and unscrew your dish eye" lol I really thought the guy was being funny at first, thought he was joking..... he wasnt... Im just glad im not a 70 year trying to cancel service, i might take a header off the roof while dismantling dish networks equipment.
In the end they waived the dish eye needing to be removed because i refused to go up and get it. Lets see if i get charged for it not being in the box. I probably will be from reading these other complaints.
My advice to anyone wanting cable, read a book instead.Companies can do what ever the *** they want now days and you can do nothing to stop them!!! 3101e8c
