this company is doing false advertising they told me they would charge me 24.99 per month for basic channels for 1 year and then it would be 34.99 after that. well my first bill was for over 90.00 dollars they cut me off when they sent me a second bill for 95.08 for 1 month NO NO NO the is a big difference in those amounts. i want my cable back but not dish network they are thieves with a license to steal dont let them get away with this. that is a total 70$ of hidden costs is this fair? is it lawful?

Not such a good deal after all

AUTHOR: Timothy - (U.S.A.)

I looked into a Dish Network offer some time ago. Being familiar with "special offer" scams, and being trained in the law, I read the terms and conditions very carefully. After doing so, I decided that I was better off paying Comcast $120 per month than paying Dish Network "$25" per month.

I'm sure that all of the fees that have been levied against you are in the terms and conditions of you offer. These include an "equipment lease fee" of as much as $250 that will be, for example's sake, prorated across 18 months of service; a "cancellation
fee" that is also prorated across the life of the plan; an "installation fee" that is probably prorated across the first few months of service; and a few other small fees that probably add up to something significant. All in all, your $25/month plan will, on the average, probably cost at least $50/month.

And if that's not bad enough, there are a host of means whereby you could inadvertently violate the agreement and be subject to additional fees. Even failing to take a certain step in the complicated process of accepting the offer can place you in a completely different plan.

All in all, the "true cost" of Dish Network will invariably be MUCH MORE than what is advertised. And their competitor is just as bad.

My theory is that quality products, sold at a reasonable price, are not marketed deceptively. When a product is marketed in a way that deceives the consumer, you can be pretty sure it isn't worth what you're being charged, even if it seems like you're getting a good deal.

What is the details on the bill?

AUTHOR: Duane - (U.S.A.)

Look at your bill - what are the charges for? Does it itemize your bill?

Perhaps there are charges for something that should not be on the bill.
