Because DISH network is dropping AMC, they are offering their customers a free Roku XD player if you call/chat and say you might switch providers because of AMC. Depending on your subscription and account status you may not be eligible for this offer and you may also be able to get a statement credit of $5/month for 6 months or $10/mo for 12 months in addition to the Roku.

It's an interesting move for a major provider to encourage customers to get their programming via a network player. Slippery slope.

What's the extra monthly fee to stream movies and tv shows through that? Im sure with Roku player, we'll have to pay something extra, right? If thats the case, I don't even know if I have a need to request for a Roku. Lol.

All of these give-aways are going to kill DISH.

I just called the 1800 number and spoke to a service specialist. Currently have the 120+ package and was looking to "potentially upgrade" to the Top 250 I had before. I was offered the Roku XD and future credit for which I would have to call after I figure out which shows I want to watch, CSR said it will be between $20-$40 per show but there is a limit to the amount of credit they can issue (I made him leave a note on the account for the credit) don't know why he said that but it could be because I currently have a monthly credit going on for a few more months.

I just got offered $5 a month for 3 months after about 15 minutes of debate. Wow, weird company. I've been with Dish for 8 years. I didn't directly threaten to leave which probably played against me, I just hinted. Maybe in the morning I will actually call to cancel and then see what happens.

can you explain in more detail what you did?
what did you say to them? did you call or chat?

I'm out of contract for 4 years. Thinking of going to DTV due to their current promos and Dish won't give me any good incentives to stay. But now that they have Dish World international channels via Roku, I don't need to stay with Dish.

Just hope to get a free Roku out of them before I leave though.
