Dish TV India / billing irregularities!

1 India Review updated:

I had my VC valid till 31-12-2006, and from their internet portal they had advertised that any one can renew 60 days prior. So I decided to renew on 11 Dec 2006, for one year. I must be renewed till 31-12-2007, but these officials renewed my VC wef 16-12-2006 for one year till 15-12-2007. How can my VC be valid for two payments from 16-12-2006 till 31-12-2006? They give no satisfactory answer and say their system cannot allow.

Also their Package DHCP Dish next Dec 2006 shows 2393.00 Rs for one year. I had paid Rs 3193 Rs for some additional channels. They have not activated my additional channels but claim I still owe Rs 343 to them. Isn't it atrocious? Where is my 1143 Rs. They cheat!!

Least of all they are discourteous over the phone and don't reply to my numerous mails and their web complaint portal.

I am fed up with their response and so I voice this in this forum.

    Yes, Kumar, they did the same to me.

    For Dish Maxi, I paid the yearly subscription of Rs 3600 and they have renewed the services only for 6 months. As per Dish TV, the dealer from where I bought the set, did not pay them some Rs 981, which Dish TV deducted from my subscription renewal of Rs 3600. Any number of calls, letters to them is of no use.

    Dish TV people and management are nothing but a bunch of cheats.

    Customers: please do not go for Dish TV... you will have to face the same kind of treatment later.

    Please don't go for dish TV. I am fed up with their services. You can notice at any given point of time they will not transmit all the channels. And their Customer care is just a junk of people worser then any government organization.

    Take my words, TATA SKY is a lot better than Dish TV.

    I strongly agree with the above statements. I bought the connection in this jan 2007 and just like mr krnishna raj i also opted for maxi package and now these guys have taken out some of the channels even before my 6 month subscription. Its completely ridiculous as they made a false claim that i have committed to pay "another" 300rs for the package. Their customer care is horrible they give you an ultimatum of 24 hrs that the problem is going to be rectified as they very well acknowledge the problem is at their end only. Their customer care is pathetic as they are also worst than a government department!! They unnecessarily harass and torment a customer even though we pay all the money together. This is cheating a customer!
