We left Dish Network because of bogus charges ($10 a month because we DIDN'T connect the DVR to a phone line), and went to Directv. We knew that it would go up after a year, but it went from $48 to $79!
We figured $10 extra for the second year because we don't have any special channels or extended programming. But $31 that's robbery for just BASIC satellite! I'm sure the penalties for cancelling the service are so steep that we won't be able to get out of the next year. I am sick of being taken advantage of with these companies!
TV is not worth $80 per month, I didn't want to pay that, so I opted for the no frills version of satellite and I'm still stuck paying too much. DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO THESE TEASER RACKETS!!!
I work for my money, everywhere I look, someone or some company is taking an extra $1, $5, $10 in fees or upcharges that weren't there a year ago. I'm telling you the end is near, I'm thinking Canada or New Zealand, a hammock and a tent.
