We have Dish but tired of the constant rate increases. We rarely watch TV there but like having access to it when we feel like it.


Thanks for reply.

We don’t either. Occasional movie or something. Or when we have the kiddos there.

Our place is at Hangout Cove and I feel your pain. We have tried other options but always come back to Dish. Dish isn't a whole lot different than everbody else, everyone wants a raise.

Mark, don’t have a place at Fork but do have a weekend lake house near Tyler and this approach would work anywhere. Dish has a program where you can “pause” your service and stop charges for the time not at that location. Charges are pro-rated per day your service is turned on. We are at the lake house about two weekends per month so about 5 or 6 days a month of TV use. Bills run $10 to $20 per month. You do loose any discounts and any offtime doesn’t count toward remaining contact term if any. What I do is call them while driving from DFW and tell them to take my service off pause then when on the way back home call and tell them to put my account on pause. Yes it’s kind of a hassle but worth an easy $80 a month to spend on other things instead of having satellite service that nobody is watching. Suggested they allow customers to do this via their app but doubt they will because too many people would manage their account this way.

Tried that and then they started charging me each time to turn it back on in addition to daily rates. Also had 3 separate times wheee it restarted earlier than date I requested and they were a pain to get sorted out. Horrible CS. I hate calling them.

We have same problem at Cedar Creek. I obtained another dish from a neighbor that was moving. Installed the second dish at lake and just move my box between the two houses

Worked great the past 2 years with no added expense

Mark,, I was gonna suggest this. When I had my slip at Ray Hubbard I had my brother install a dish at the end of the slip. I had two extra boxes added to my acct because we were down there so much and didn't want to bring boxes out all the time. Back then it was $5 a box so for $10 We had two tvs on satellite on our slip.

He is still in the business if you need some help setting this up.

direct tv now is $35 a month thru wifi. great way to get cable without the $125 price tag. most ppl have internet anyways. also great for watching on a tablet or iphone at the workplace. it's an app that loads on a smart tv, roku, or similar device.

Mark I use direct tv and have forever. Dish or direct tv doesn’t really matter. Just add a box and keep it at the lake.
