Thread Details

Called Dish Network yesterday night, Still had 9 months left , in my 2 year Contract.
Said wanted to Cancel , as need to cut costs.Don't want to use something i cant pay for.

They offered Dish Welcome Pack $14.99 a month including locals . Another friend called , who got it $9.99 without locals.

YMMV . But i dont think it tough to get it , me and my friend got it in the first try.

Channel Line Up.

This deal is only for current Dish TV Customers in Contract , who want to reduce there bill . In the end you pay $7.50 less a month , if you get the $9.99 welcome pack, compared to cancelling.

Customers out of Contract can also receive the Welcome Pack.

Good for those that want to keep international only and have to take the INTERNATIONAL BASIC $10 plan which sucks. This atleast has some viewable channels.
I just changed from the basic to the welcome pack using online chat

I wouldn't even pay $5 for this shameful package. Just get rabbit ears and you will get more useful channels than this package.

The reason i posted this as a deal , is that you get this even if you are in contract.

Till Yesterday , you had 2 options either you pay 17$ a month for ETF , or take Dish Family for $24.99 , to low down your bills.

Now you can use this to get a lower bill.I am not suggesting this as an option for new customers.This is for people who are in contract , and they think that they are just paying a lot of money without getting its worth.

You can use this with International Programming also..

looks like a great deal, thanks for posting. Sure some of the channels suck, even a lot of them. Look at whatever package you have now and it also has channels that suck. This is super cheap and can be a good alternative.

THANKs for the posting ! we have dish family now, it's $19.99 before tax ~~ i just chat with cs, they said they can give me a welcome pack for $14.99 with local channels, i asked about without local channel, he said all packages come with local channel ~~I said no, the dish family package we have now is without local channels ! i know this because I called them before about local channels and someone told me that my package doesn't include this !! The guy I talked today, he said sorry and added all the local channels to our account ~~it's funny ~~so I didn't change to Welcome Pack because it's only $5 difference and we get more channels than Welcome Pack ~~If they can give me $9.99 without local channel, i will do it ~~We already past 2 year contract ~~

this package is only good for early cancellation people -- so they don't have that charge. none of these channels are worth watching. Cable without fox sports and espn is not cable Smilie...

but again, great deal for those looking to save money from cancellation fees

Too late. Already paid $192 in cancellation fees. Totally worth it to be rid of Dish. Their customer service is absolutely without question the best in the business. I know because I called them every time a sprinkle of water fell on the dish and I lost picture.

Sorry for the rant.

i agree, you dont have to pay a buck for local channels as they are free, I just got bunny ears antenna for 6$ on amazon and I am getting HD locals. all i need is to watch football games and couple of series.

I got a question. I was going to order the cable companies BASIC cable option which is basically just locals for $17/mo. The reason is I live too far to get anything over the air. I'm using Hulu right now predominantly but it's kind of a pain. As a new customer can I get the welcome back for the full 2 years at $15?

While I normally agree with local channels OTA, it's worth noting that some people cannot receive locals without either a very expensive outdoor antenna or not at all.

For $10-$15 this deal is not bad. You still get amc, bloomberg, comedy central, tbs, and the history channel. Too bad they did not throw in CNN otherwise I would say sufficient for a college student/recent graduate with good internet and hulu.
