Enough is enough!

For over three years now I have had DISH network and LOVED it! It has only gone down twice in that time, and both times it has been during an absolute white-out blizzard!. Can't fault them for that.

HOWEVER....In December, Dish Network and the Fisher Company fell out of negotiations to renew their contract with KOMO TV and ABC. Thus all during Christmas, I had NBC, And CBS, and everyone else but ABC! Did not bother me that much, as I was sick the whole time, and did not care what was on, because I slept through it anyway.

Yesterday I tried once again to contact a real LIVE person at DISH and got put on hold for ever so long. I also emailed and thus far, not even the courtesy of an automated "We got your email but..." response.

I am switching over to DIRECT TV on Monday. I hate to do it because I really have no problems with the DISH Network, but it does not appear that they really are trying hard to resolve this impasse! The recorded message that they have on Channel 4 is even over a month old, so I doubt that they have even got any updates to tell us about.

This morning, I tried once again to contact them to no avail. They are messing with my life!!!! I can't watch the VIEW!!! a whole month with no Goldie, or Joy, or Elizabeth or Babs or even Sherry (I don't care for her anyway) But I miss the HOT TOPICS!

Come on DISH! I'm Old, I'm Cranky, deal with me....

We shouldn't have to deal with all that crap! We pay enough for the service that we should have golden oldie service!

Have you tried to contact that company with a handwritten letter Mary Lou? Just as we did in the old days. :-)

Sometimes you just finally come to the end of your patience....I don't blame you Mary Lou. Enough IS Enough! They certainly are quick to take our money aren't they? Good luck with your new service.

Herman, I doubt if even that would garner a response! They just are sitting on the line and not budging!

I had DirecTV for quite a few years and had no complaints. I dropped them only because I don't travel as much in the RV as I used to and we have cable included for us here in the park where I live. It just wasn't practical to be paying almost $70 a month for something that I wasn't using. But they are good people.

Consider yourself lucky. I can't have either dish company. To many tree's.

You aren't the only one that I read has said they are leaving Dish over this. We have had DirectTV since it began and are very happy with them-- so far.

That would be pretty annoying, Mary Lou. I'd say if you can get what you want somewhere else, go. If enough people do so, the company will notice.
