Dish Network / Dish.com — lack of satellite reception
My wife signed up for this service thinking it would save some money. I think it saved us about 5 bucks a month. It's worth the 5 bucks to tell Dish to shove their crappy equipment where the sun never shines. I worked in the infotainment industry as a reliability engineer. I built satellite and cable boxes. The satellite biz was separate from my department, but because I built a cable/satellite/NTSC/ATSC system with small and large dishes and over the air reception. We never had any problems with cable, satellite was a nightmare. We had an incident where all of Asia and India lost reception and there was a lot of hand wringing and monkee motion from the exec's.
about this wanting to know why. When I finally got word of the failures I asked, did anyone know that there was a solar flair last night? Issue solved. That's another reason I dislike satellite TV systems. I love copper and fiber and I love DOCSIS 3. So I told my wife that Dish is crap, but she ordered it anyway.On the "first day' the system was dropping packets all over the place and going offline. During a single 1 hour program it lost the signal 6 times. over the course of the day we had over thirty failures of the system, that is unacceptable.
The customer service is and always has been deplorable, obstructive, and adversarial. It took almost 3 hours of phone time to finally get these evil thieves to cancel the contract, for which they are charging me $480.00. But interestingly enough is that they have not yet produced a contract signed by the owners of this house.
This company is evil to it's rotten core. They take advantage of contract law to screw the citizens of this country, especially elderly people. They obstruct in a highly adversarial way. When I think of my 84 year old mother trying to deal with this company I can see why they have this adversarial business plan. She would get frustrated and not do anything because, unlike myself, she doesn't like domineering, rude, obstructive people and practices.
Dish Network is very much the thieves that everyone makes them out to be. I will get my money back by shorting DISH nasdaq stock If anyone would like to know how to do this give me a call at [protected]. The only way to get their attention is to hit them in the pocket book.
Once again Dish Network is evil. that's the only word that describes them... Oh, proof? Sure, how about "Pleas stay on the line your call will be answered in 5 minutes and 16 seconds. It was well over 35 minutes before an employee answered. and of course he wanted to send someone out to "fix it". So the 5 minutes and 16 seconds wait was a lie... and they know this fact and continue to follow this part of Dish Networks business model.
