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.

I cancelled service and returned the equipment I was told to I even called to make certain that I was not making an error and now dish is charging me 300 dollars for equipment they told me to dispose of. And when you call to help they are not only condescending and rude but no one at the corporate office answers the phone to help. I spoke to a “supervisor” Nick ID 87D and he was useless trying to tell me even though some there told me to throw the receiver away the only way not to pay is to search the garbage dumps and return the equipment dish said was obsolete. I’m disgusted and as they say the best advertising is word of mouth.

Dish is horrible, all I have to say is…..Damn What The Hell Was I Thinking About joining Dish Comcast, Direct tv, and any other cable company offer better service than this piece of shit company.


Larry Woolverton April 11, 2015 at 5:50 pm

I have to say that this is the worst experience I have ever had with any company I have ever dealt with in my life. I called April 1, 2015 to inform dish I was moving and to have them move my service and to hang my televisions three of them, on 4/9/2015. When the man gets there on the 9th of April to install my service at my new house, there was no place on his order to hang my televisions. Needless to say I was disappointed. To make matters worse on what was already a long day, I was treated to complete incompetence by one of the customer service representatives. She had no clue what she was doing and only made matters worse, when all I was calling about was to ask why my television order was incomplete on hanging my televisions. Finally after 45 minutes listening to here stupidity and lack of understanding I was transferred to another guy to put my on hold after getting the problem resolved only to ask me what day was good for me. Saturday 4/11/2015 they were suppose to come and hang my Televisions. When the guys got there not only did they not have the equipment to hang my televisions the order was only for 1 television not the three that I ordered. My wife needed to finish moving from our old house, but stayed to wait for the guy to hang the televisions. Our old house is 60 miles away and she has my baby (21 month old) and 11 year old son to try to take care of. But she waited and only to have the guy show up with out the equipment to only hang even 1 television. Lets not Forget the fact that I wanted 3 of them Hung on the walls. So I wasted yet another day waiting on dish to not only screw up my orders again, show lack of understanding and treated to incompetence yet again. Sunday is my only day off, and all I wanted to do was enjoy it by watching television and watching baseball games on my nicely hung televisions on my wall. I guess that is not going to happen. If I wasn’t so tired right now, and the fact that I don’t want to go with out television till I Time Warner Cable can come install cable Television, I would cancel my service right now. Monday I probably will, go ahead and cancel my service. I mean I don’t get it, your commercials say what an easy move it is going to be with dish and it is anything but that. I have every channel that Dish has to offer and I have never once missed a payment in 2 plus years. I am going to copy this e-mail and see how far up the chain of command I can go with this most horrendous service I have ever had with anything I have ever had to deal with.


Lauren April 10, 2015 at 3:04 pm

DISH NETWORK SUCKS! they fried two of my tvs during the install and are now claiming it was my electric that damaged their box which damaged my tvs and are refusing to replace or compensate me for the tvs!!! filing a suit in small claims court!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reply April 4, 2015 at 5:41 pm

Rebecca B March 25, 2015 at 10:32 pm

Does anyone at DISH even care about all these horrible comments?


bobbie April 4, 2015 at 5:48 pm

No they do not they are definitely not customer service oriented I never had problems like this from direct TV they actually try to help keep thir customers happy


Suzette Blanton March 25, 2015 at 9:32 pm

If Dish was so wonderful they would NEVER have to have contracts that bind people, or early termination fees. Dish would have people lining up to sign up if they were so wonderful. All I can say is the bigger you are, the harder you fall, and I am an extremely angry, dissatisfied customer who can’t wait to see Dish FALL !!!


Shawn March 25, 2015 at 2:35 pm

I would not recommend dish to NOBODY. They did nothing but lie to me from the first day I called them. When you call them they say we don’t do that or we don’t say that bullllllll. I only had dish for 13 days and they want to charge me $480.00 plus more for this and that. The service man drilled holes on the front side and back side of my house?? Really????? I’m loose my job next sat. And I told them I needed a good deal oh we will give you one. Well that’s a lie. I talk to a lady about a week ago that said I could make payments . But now got a letter saying they are going to take it out of my bank account?. The letter said signed paper. I didn’t sign nothing. I’m tired of dealing with dish. All they do is make it sound so good.


Kevin farmer March 17, 2015 at 5:58 pm

Don’t bother calling the corporate office-these crooks hide behind a recorded message and no one ever answers. They farm their tech support out to inept morons that can’t fix anything. I find it disgusting that their recorded message talks about family pride. No one with any pride or self respect would treat customers te
He way dish does. I will cancel my service today and recommend to anyone that will listen, not to buy dish service. I have called 37 times in the last 45 day to reset my local channels. They have had my billing address wrong for a year and a half. I live in Texas and they have had my billing address in NC for the entire time. You win DISH! I give up. Another customer lost. If you think you are too big, just look at Enron! Enough said. Enjoy your perks while you can Mr. Clayton


Buffie Shaw March 14, 2015 at 6:10 pm

I have an 84 year old granny that can not get her Dish to be put in her retirement apartment complex due to the complex rules of where a satellite may be placed. They want to charge her $160 for her early termination $10 for the return box and $18 for tax. How is it fair that she has to pay all of that for something she can not use? Its not her fault that she can not put it where she could have reception. No poles or put on the roof is allowed in the complex. I have been a Dish customer for many years and now I am considering cancelling my service due to how they have treated my Granny. Something has to be done about companies that take advantage of people that have no control over their circumstances.


Maddie March 25, 2015 at 12:48 pm

SADLY, DISH has also been a problem for us.
The ‘tech’ told me to put the dish in my bedroom window . . . INSIDE MY HOUSE!


Lisa Ponke March 12, 2015 at 7:46 am

Dish Network is a total joke. I wish we had other options here, but our only other option is Direct TV which is an even BIGGER joke. So, we are stuck with the lesser of the two jokes. Customer service SUCKS. We were blown off 7 days ago by being told that there was a software issue on DIsh’s end that didn’t even exist. 7 days of screwed up tv and what did we get? A whopping $10 off our bill for 3 months. What a nightmare, I can’t even tell you how many hours we’ve spent with issues with Dish. I tell everyone I know if they have another alternative, go with it, do NOT go to Dish. I will be making a call to corporate later today too when I get home from work.


George Nichols March 10, 2015 at 1:21 pm

I wasn’t sure where to go to ask this so here goes I have been a dish technition for 5 years I worked for KCI satellite out of Pittsfield was a real enjoyable job now it has turned into a nightmare seems they care more about us becoming more of a salesman then a tech.I was not hired on to be a salesman I am not comfortable doing that.Now KCI has sold out to Galexy one from Bentonsport Iowa And or jobs are being threatened if we don’t sale your products.I really enjoy installing dish they tell us that it is dish that is making us do this I was just wondering who is to blame for making so many employees so un happy please respond thank you


Dennis March 6, 2015 at 3:10 pm

I have been a customer of Dishnet for over 25 years, with over 20 of those years beging on autopay. When I retired 3 years ago, I dropped the autopay and began paying month to month. However, as costs rise, I found myself falling one month behind. This was fine until about 6 months ago, I paid the minimum, not the full month behind but made up the difference the following month. My service has been interrupted. I had to pay 9.00 to get an extension. They claimed my due date was the 23rd, so i have paid that each month unti la month or so ago, they moved that date back and interrupted my service last month on the 14th, the previous month on the 16th so I had to pay for TWO Extensions each. This last month I called to get the second extension which took me to the 4th.. I was told a min. of 141.00 would keep it on til the 23rd. Today, on the 6th of March, my service is interrupted again.. they keep moving the date back but cannot move it forward until caught up.. After talking with several supervisors, who offered no help whatsoever and claiming with all the additional charges i owe 400.00 I told them to TAKE The boxes out and disconnect it permanently.
Apparently, being a long time customer of dish means nothing to them. I went for well over 22 years watching my bill being increased and when I added more sets several years ago, it actually wound up going DOWN from all the years I had been paying. This is ridiculous. I refuse to continue to deal with a company that has such little concern over a long time customer.


ramras March 6, 2015 at 8:21 am

Called dish network on 2/22/15, 3/4, 3/5, & 3/6/15 because of ABC On Demand dropping off after the automatic 3am update. I was told to reset the receiver on the 22nd & ABC & NBC on demand came back. Since the problem recurs daily since then I pressed the reset several times. Sometimes ABC On Demand comes back, sometimes it doesn’t. Was told each time that it was a “software issue” that was first referred to “engineering” , then today told that “engineering is working on it”. For ALMOST 2 WEEKS!! If they know it’s a problem, why is it taking this like long to fix it? I asked for a credit on my bill today and was blown off. The “Advanced Technical Support” person I spoke to today seemed to be linguistically challenged, couldn’t put words together to make a coherent sentence. I’m fed up & will file a complaint with my State & urge everyone who has a problem with this “service” to do the same.My State joined 2 others & successfully sued Direct TV for shoddy service. If they get enough complaints they’ll might do the same against Dish Network.


Deirdre Crouch March 5, 2015 at 11:39 pm

Hello Mr. Clayton,

I am writing you in regards to my terrible, unprofessional service that I received from Dish customer service from employees and representatives. I was trying everything I could to get this resolved through them. I will try to make this as short as possible. Firstly, I would like to say that I have enjoyed watching Dish. Now, when I first received my service at the end of October I paid my bill. In November I had gone online And saw I had a payment due by end of month. So, I paid the bill early not knowing that because I had autopay it will charge my credit card again. So, I called Dish to explain that I had already made the November payment why would another payment be charge. The representative told me because I was on autopay it automatically takes the payment. I then stated why would the system take a payment that was not due. The representative state again because I was setup on autopay. I then explained to the representative I have paid other bills early and have autopay set up and they do not take a payment when a payment is not due. I then requested the credit for the payment. The agent said he we reverse the payment back to my credit card.

Whatever was done for December I received another bill for January for $100.26, when the agent reversed the double payment he added $84.18 to my bill. The reverse was the same day which should have been a wash. So, I get a bill for February for $270.59 I called again. I explained all I owed was the $16.08 from the previous bill, 84.18 for this bill and $96.82 in movies. We both agreed that I should be paying $201.10 and my payment should go back to the $84.18. Before I paid the agreed amount DISH disconnected my service, which made me have to call again. The agent to me they disconnected my services because I had a return payment. Here I go again; I asked the agent to look at the number of months that I have had service there is a payment for each month. Please turn my service back on after over an hour on evry call to your company it is still not right. I explain my payments are due at end of month. So, the agent connected my services and I explained I will pay at end of month.

I just started receiving bills after bills increasing my amount due. They charged me for disconnecting my service I never requested my service disconnected. I explained to the agent the previous agent didn’t credit the account to reflect the $201.10. So, I get a bill with $577.39 for disconnect fees and they only credited $460.00 no of the credits from the $270 bill. The agent told me that he nor a supervisor could not make any credits I have to pay it then they would credit to my bill. I was livid, I have done more than required of me for DISH mistake.

To top it off DISH has removed me from my promotion plan and now my bill will not be the $84.18 as promised when I switched my service from Directv for 14 years. Also, it has been 3 months and I haven’t received my gift card for switching. I have enjoyed my service with DISH, please review my multiply statements and credit my account the correct amount and put my promotion back on all my monthly statement so that my bill will be $84.18 as promised for my switch. Please acknowledge the receipt of this email.

Thank you

Deirdre Crouch

I want to say this is the crooked mess I have ever seen!!! We have been with dish for over 30!yrs. started out 42.00 ever since then they would go up on prices.if you didn’t pay they would turn the tv off or pay what they wanted you too. After haggling about a bill they would finally give a credit for several months and then here we go again.repeat!!!! I would ask them tell me how much will my bill be I am on a fixed income. Nope couldn’t give you an amount because their game is to continually go up. After it hit 100.00 I had had enough. I’m 61 yrs old I don’t won’t to have to go thru this mess like this about a stupid bill!!! So they can take this mess and shove it, I’m done!!! I just wish they would do what they tell you, they know they have you over a barrel. But I’m praying that the whole mess will go down from the top all the way to the bottom!!! You don’t do people that way and get by!!!!!!!


Norgan Anderson March 1, 2015 at 8:05 pm

I know this message will probably fall on deaf ears or blind eyes, but i have to get it off my chest..Dish Network is by far the worse company I have ever worked for. But of course you already know that. Being voted worse company 2 years straight means that you worked hard at being the worse. But what I dont understand is why. For every employee you fire or who quits because of unfair treatment, it hurts your company image. Dont you know that these former employees have families and friends. Do you not realizes that these former employees talk. Maybe having 14 percent of the market is all you want,but it seem a little short sighted to me. I for one am going to tell everyone who will listen what was going on in the Albany Ga office. I wont be the only one ,ten employee has been fired in 4 months.. how short sighted! Anyway the truth always comes out. Hope to see you on 60 minutes one day


CONNIE February 25, 2015 at 10:25 am

I called DISH in the hopes of changing my provider with another if I could find a better rate.

First let me tell you I used to be a ‘telemarketer’ so I am aware of the tactics call specialist use to extort money from bank accounts, which is why I quit, I’m not a bully nor a thief!

Needless to say, I was EXTREMELY frustrated after an hour and a half and not getting any satisfactory results! I made it CLEAR that I did NOT want ANY of their services to all FIVE of the customer service (jokes) reps they kept passing me to trying to convince me to purchase TV and Internet. I even had a couple of them tell me their experiences with their providers!! My bank account was ‘hacked’ (for lack of a better term) several days later, twice, within 48 hours for just shy of a $100.00. My funds have still not been returned after 6 days!! So, now I’m angry and am filing this complaint with DISH and sharing with Facebook to discourage anyone who sees this that they may NOT want to go there! NEVER AGAIN!!!

I had a problem with a Dish Network commercial. It showed a teenager coming out of the house with a cell phone in his hand. His father tells him they are going to visit Aunt Judy. The boy says that she doesn’t even have a TV for him to watch the game and she is crazy.
Then the Hopper Bunny appears with a new gadget and tells the boy that he can watch TV where ever he goes. As he passes his Dad, he says, “I hope she took a shower.” The father then says, “I hope so too.”
I found this very offensive to senior citizens, (I am 85 years old,))insulting, hurtful and depressing. The Senior’s at my Senior Citizen all agreed so it was not just me.
A friend gave me a phone number from her smart phone of the Dish Network Corporate office. For two months I was calling the wrong number and no one answered or it just rang and rang.
A few weeks ago I checked on my computer, (which I am not very good at,) and I connected with someone in the Corporate office. I thought I kept better records but at the moment I cannot find her name. I told her the about the commercial and she must have taken care of it. I only watch the Hallmark channels, HGTV and other channels in the vicinity. My husband passed away almost a year ago and I cannot watch any of the channels that we watched together. It is just not fun when you do not have anyone to share with. He loved the Military channel.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for handling that commercial. If I have any more problems, I know where to go with them.

Frank February 17, 2015 at 12:53 pm

After my father passed away I called Diash to let them know to cancel his service.. They TWICE tried to upsell me HIS service explainging that was a loyal customer. I Told them I was not interested. They again tried to sell me his service.
They sent me a box for his reciever. I sent the receiver back assuming everything was over, not so much. Two months later I got a call from a collection agency demanding I pay them $47.00. I had no idea why and they would not say.. After some research i found that Dish got MY address, which is in no way connected to my dads service, in fact, I live in a different state. I made numerous phone calls ( to the Phillipines apparently) who said they were sorry BUT THEY cant handle this.. The LOONG story short is I am STILL dealing with this.
This is prob the worst customer ser4vice I have ever dealt with and the kicker is ITS NOT EVEN MY ACCOUNT.. Good luck if you actually have these idiots as a carrier………….


Meka March 7, 2015 at 9:20 am

Worst companies that I’ve ever encountered. Never will recommend anyone to get your service. Installed the satellite on my apartment ground without asking permission of the rental office. A month later, the apartment office contacted and informed me that the satellite should not have been placed on ground. Called Dish to find out that it is my responsibility to make sure that was ok. Then called corporate office, I was told that the charges were valid and got charged $565 for breaking the contract. Ridiculous reasons to overcharge a customer! Don’t sign up wish Dish!


Robert March 20, 2015 at 10:09 am

My E-Mail was out, and the phones weren’t working. Dish said there was a defective outlet, and it would cost $100.00 to fix it. This was a blatant lie. I terminated my service, and they then told me that they had sold my phone number. I had this phone number for years, and it resulted in my losing both personal, and business contacts. We need to get Elizabeth Warren involved in what this company is doing. Dish now has the guts to bill me for service that I didn’t get. When you call they said they would connect you to the President’s office. What a joke1 Some low level employee answers the phone.
