Dish Network History

Dish Network, commonly referred to just as DISH, was founded in March 1996 as Echostar.  The company was originally a distributor of C Band satellite TV systems.  They launched their first satellite Echostar I at the end of 1995.  They made their first broadcast in March of 1996.

In 1999, Dish was the first to release a HDTV tuner.  In 2003, Echostar IX was launched, which allowed broadcasting of all local channels to US consumers.

In 2011, Dish acquired the assets of bankrupt Blockbuster Inc. and subsequently added Blockbuster Movie Pass to their offerings.

In 2012, Dish dropped Network from their name and just goes by DISH.  Their parent company is still called Dish Network.

Dish currently services over 14 million customers in the US.

We have been set up on auto pay for over 5 years with dish network watching our bill go up. We to bought into the internet scam on a 2 year contract. I have heard 3 different stories on that one and needless to say very little results. But the customer service we have received this time has been all lies too. We have as l said paid auto pay since we started with dish. The payment has come out on the 21st of the month for over five years. Except this month they took it on the 4th of December, posting to my account the 5th, I called the morning of the 6th and was told “oh big mistake your money will revert back to your account in 72 hours” big lie. I called just over 72hrs then I was told it will be there within the week another big lie. Now 10 days later I was denied my refund “SAY WHAT” in no way was I ever told that there was any possibility I would not receive any of it back. They passed me on to the specialist who told me that’s the way it always works.The bill regenerates on the 1st, so what if you have set up payment for the 21st if they get your money early they do not have to make it right with us the customer. What happened to honest customer service their employee’s just tell you what they want and it doesn’t matter if it is anything close to the truth or not. It does matter that they screwed up my bank account. As long as they got there money. They do not care if they took my electric money or food money so what we just get to figure it out. The lies I have heard from dish has me to this point maybe a lot of their customers should be looking at a class action lawsuit and get back some of our money. I am sure so many have been taken for it is not just me that is being lied to and robbed. I am now actively seeking a new cable and internet provider. Hope I can find a lot better deal and not ever have to be scammed into programing that starts out a lie, like my internet program.

Re:DishNet “High Speed” Internet Service

I have been a Dish customer for well over twelve years now. I haven’t had anything but positive experience regarding our Dish Satellite T.V. service. I heard about Dish’s internet service, and thought well It probably will be just as decent to, and also will save me some money. So, I recently signed on a two year contract for Dishes high speed internet service in late August of this year(2014.) Since then, I feel that I have been bamboozled by Dish. The advertisement and all that it claims doesn’t hold true. I start having fast speed for maybe a day or two, and then I have slow speed, after a certain period of time. I get an email saying you have used 70% of your data, and the day of the next cycle period just started. I was told it’s because of other devices using the WiFi. When I talked to a Dish Representative, they made no mention of this. Had I known this I wouldn’t have signed onto this contract. I get better reception with my mobil phone service, and sadly my local telephone companies internet service that I formerly used prior to DishNet. It has been a pain in the butt, so much so that I’m considering hiring a lawyer to look into my situation.
It’s a SCAM! Don’t recommend it to anyone! Spreading the word where and how ever I can!
Disappointed customer

I was stunned today by the lack of real business knowledge and customer service Dish employees have. 3 days ago I spent about 45 minutes on the phone going thru step after step to try to get my receiver to provide the On Demand service THAT HASN’T BEEN WORKING FOR 2-3 MONTHS! At the end of the conversation I was told that my equipment seemed to be defective and a service tech would be out to see me on Tuesday 12/2/14 between 12-5. Of course I sat here all day and no one came. I called at 5:30 only to be told that no one scheduled a technician.

So I get sent to another Broadband employee who wants to walk me thru the exact same steps I’d done several times before. Mainly because the gentleman who helped me didn’t make notes on my file. So I wasted more time on the phone only to be told that in this situation they would need to simply send me a new receiver and I could hook it up. I’m OK with that and I agree to that plan of attack.

Here’s the kicker. I ask him who I could contact once I get my receiver working again about how Dish can compensate me for being unable to use the features of my TV for the past 3 months. And he tells me that I don’t pay for On Demand so there is no compensation. I try to explain to him that when a feature is part of an overall package of services that I purchase, then I am indeed paying for it somewhere and am entitled to all of the services that I was promised when I contracted with Dish. He continued to tell me over and over that I will receive no compensation because it’s not a service I pay for. I try my hardest to explain the simple business principle that having signed a contract with Dish that included On Demand means that it is indeed part of what they owe me and part of the reason I chose Dish over Comcast.

So I ask him who I would contact to discuss the issue further and he tells me he’s the ONLY person I would ever be able to speak to because he handles billing. Once again I try to explain. I tell him that unless he is the president, vice president, CEO or some other grand title at Dish, then there is indeed someone else I can speak to.

I finally felt so sorry for the little idiot that I had to let him off the hook. I understand that these people are simply looking up info on a computer and parroting back what the computer says, but obviously DISH places no importance on customer service and retaining the business they do have. So I’m excited to share just ho horrible this company really is

And I’ll be waiting for someone to contact me concerning compensation on my account for being unable to use On Demand for 3 months!

So you people in the dish network customer service department, pissed me off so badly, that after seventeen, count’em SEVENTEEN years with one account and the last ten with a second account, I quit you! There’s no going back! I have contacted your rude, non English speaking employees four times now to get you to remove me from your damn mailing list! I still get THREE invites to come back every other week. On the odd week I get two. REALLY!? Ten whiny requests PER MONTH! LEAVE me the HELL alone DISH!!!!!
