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.

For ten months I have tried to get my bills paid by mail, and it has been a big problem. Because Dish account payment are on every 24 days, it is a big confusion to the customers to understand the ups and downs of the bills. It seem that Dish has this calculated so they can manipulate the payments to their convenience.To make things worse, sometimes they send the bill on the regular base, another times they skip a bill so they can charge for late charge. Why not make the period of 30 days instead of 24? If Dish is reading this, please let me know why not. Thanks.

My sister Sheryl smith is a current customer in Harrisonville, Mo. She is suffering from cancer and has lost all ability to speak. We called for an upgrade of service to include internet. Because she was unable to speaks I spoke for her. After explaining to the rep. Our treatment was unbelievable. We were informed that it was not their concern, and was ask if she could grunt her approval? We’ve been ask to share her story, which we will consider. Is this how Dish trains their reps to treat their customers? Or our you to big to care?

I left Dish only because of their issues with FX many years ago. They were in disputes so we left. I have bounced around trying to find another carrier that had great quality like Dish, but was unsuccessful. I got stuck into a contract with Direct TV until recently and reached out to Dish to come back. I had been receiving promotions through the mail saying come back, we will do this and that for you. So, I called just yesterday, my whole account is gone, apparently they go away after 90 days? They could not honor any promo without an account, odd because how do they have my address then? No one would honor the promotions I received to get re-established at no cost, in fact, they wanted me to pay for services I had not even received? So today, I chatted with a support person who sent me canned responses. I loved Dish before, why would they not care about old or returning customers? I only left because they were losing channels that I watched regularly and had no eta to give on when or if the channels would be restored (which they were). I am sad that a company that I felt was above that would do this to me.

I have been with Dish for over 16 years. Several years ago, at Dish’s suggestion, we bundeled our service with CenturyTel (now called Centurylink) and doing this we got a $10. a month discount, so why not? Over two years ago we dropped our home phone but we continue to receive our bill for Dish, through Centurylink.
We are now wanting to add internet service to our package and NO ONE CAN HELP ME!!! They all say “Oh, your bundeled through Centurylink so you have to call them to make any changes to your service. I DID call Centurylink and they told me they have NO Affiliation with Dish anymore and she cant believe were still bundeled with them. Centurylink is now affiliated with DirectTV. (She said she could help me if I wanted to change to DirectTV and it’s a thought!) She called Dish for me and in a 3 way call she told the lady from Dish that she was “un-Bundeling” my account and she should be able to help me now.. That lady said she understood and transferred me to another lady who KNEW NOTHING!! She once again told me she couldn’t help me because I was BUNDELED!! I spent over 2 hours trying to get INTERNET from DISH. I have spoke to about 7 of your employees and even one superviser. I now plan on calling Excede Internet but wanted you to know how stupid this is!!
By the way, in Sunday school yesterday 2 other people said their plans were also still bundeled with centruylink. I told them that $10 you save means you have NO CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ALL. I even tried calling your corporate office and after being on hold for 8 minutes I assumed I had been forgotten so I called back and this time they didn’t take the call (I was sent to the toll free number each time after that) I am not feeling that Dish appreciates my business or wants my internet business. I would think 16 years of paying my bills on time would warrant some “Loyalty and Service”. Apparently not!

Joe Clayton & the entire board at dish are liars and cowards. The board at dish hasn’t a set of cahones amongst the lot.
You lying schmucks have no intention of returning Fox News to the lineup. This is why I have scheduled local cable installation at my residence, once installed I am done paying the lying cowards at dish. Good luck collecting you lying cowards.

I have been a customer with Dish for over 20 years. direct is no better. We have no choice. I am going to minimum plan and buy sireus for my truck to hear Fox News. Dish stockholders should be pissed. The CEO claims he is conservative. He is a power freak. Funny how dish can decide what channels to give me, but I have to pick from their P”packages”– it is a one way street, huh. I guess Obama will be ultimate winner from this crap.

I am currently a dish customer with a contract. When my contract expires with Dish Network, I will switch to another provider that carries FNC if the differences between dish and Fox have not been resolved. I have talk to many people that feel the same as I and some have already switched providers. Fox is still the number 1 new program running and has been for several years. Does that not mean anything to Dish?

Dish,
Some people view select channels 80-90 % of their viewing time . ( don’t tell me you can’t track that statistic)…..why not reduce their bill 80-90% ? ( and possibly wave the cancellation fee )

Somewhere down the road dish might come up as an option even after choosing another provider for a while !,,, ….. But not after that treatment :(

Remember -80-90 % ….. You basically blacked out their tv anpd are holding them hostage .

I think it is about time for all you Dish Network raking in the money to get your act together and get FOX News back on the air and never been so upset with programming until now, been with Dish when they were EchoStar, the first program I watched was a Detroit Red Wings hockey game. I’ve been a FOX news watcher since it was Steve, Brian, and e.d. Hill. I don’t really think taking $5.00 off our bill is much compensation and I’m certainly not into free channels either, half would be more like it because you know darn well when this is all settled you well be raising prices.

Mr. Joseph Clayton
I have been with Dish for 2 months. I specifically stated that I required FOX news, your representative said no problem without mentioning that you were currently in negotiation FOX’s contract. Two weeks with Dish Fox was cancelled. I called Dish rep who told me it would be about 30 days and FOX should be back on. Dish offered to pay my next months bill for the inconvenience, I agreed to remain with Dish but requested the representative to documented our conversation.
I again called Dish 1/8/15 and they said they do not know when FOX will be back on, I told them I wanted to cancel Dish due to misrepresenting the services that I receive. I was told I would have to pay for the full 2 year contract and they do not have a 30 day satisfaction policy; when asked to speak to a supervisor I was put on hold 20 minutes then disconnected.
Mr Clayton I have been in business for many years and I know that this is no way to treat customers.

Since we can no longer get the Fox News Channel we will be looking for another network that has it. We have been with Dish for a long time when we could have switched to cheaper networks. This is the thanks we get for loyalty. Sometimes we watch Fox News all day. We never watch CBS or NBC or any other left leaning channel. Get with the program, Dish, or else “Good Bye”.

Mark January 5, 2015 at 8:31 pm

I thought Dish was owned by a company in the Phillipines as that is who I talked with today. He did tell me they are receiving unfavorable reviews from the recent boneheaded decision to fight fox. Direct tv is now instantly behind in changeovers from dish. CEO, you better wake up. Stockholders, this CEO liberal is gonna tank your company. Better get it fixed now. Also, we in America are ready to pick our own channels and pay for them. I use about ten of the 200 I have to take in order to get what I want. How about addressing that , too.

Sick of this BS January 9, 2015 at 5:18 pm

Unhappy Customer January 5, 2015 at 12:53 pm

By copy of this letter we are canceling your service. We have made our payments on time and have had no problems with your service until you removed our #1 and #2 stations, Fox News Network and Fox Business Channel. These channels were on in our home from 7:00 a.m. Until 11:00 p.m. We have moved several times and lived in different states having several different cable providers. We look first for Fox News Network and then second for Fox Business Channel. When we signed on with you last April, we had to go up a tier to obtain the Fox Business Channel. In our many moves, we have been serviced by Time Warner, Com Cast, Direct TV, and many smaller cable service providers. Not once have we had a “top rated” and “the most watched cable news network” removed from our program service.

We have called and emailed many times in the last two weeks inquiring as to how long DISH planned to take to get this matter resolved. DISH customer service can not give us a date as to when these highly rated and popular networks will be re-installed to us. Through Social Media, we have learned that DISH has made all kinds of different offers to their unhappy customers and have been inconsistent with their offerings. There is nothing you can offer us by money or another network that will replace the Fox News Network and the Fox Business Channel. They are rated “Number 1” for their quality and for being “Fair and Balanced.” Therefore, we view this as a breach in the DISH contract. DISH’s small print about programming changes can not stretch far enough to cover this willful breach in the contract with DISH customers.

Just watched an advertisement from Charter that is advertising to pay the total disconnect fee, give 150.00 gift card and no contract to switch from Dish. One way to get Fox back after 4 months with Dish without having to pay their outrageous disconnect fee.

Reply

Nancy January 7, 2015 at 12:04 pm

I have another way to dump Dish and not pay them another dime. 1. Discontinue authorization for them to charge my husband’s credit card, even if we have to cancel the current card and open a new account. 2. We are retirement age, our entire income is from retirement sources, which are judgment proof. 3. I was not a party to this contract, therefore they can’t come after anything that is jointly owned, tenants-by-the-entirety. EVERYTHING we have is jointly owned in this way.

We have been with DISH for about three months and it has been a nightmare right from the beginning! Their supposed “high speed” Internet service is total BULL. Half the time I can’t access the Internet at all, half the time I can’t even send an email. Fox is the second channel they have blocked that we watch a lot. I would bet anything that the channel for American Idol is next.

I’m DONE! They won’t get another dime!

I also called customer service this morning. The representative was nice; after all he works for the company behind some cubicle probally making a little more than minimum wage. He said they could adjust my bill. It is not about the money with me, I just want my local new channels back and the Fox news station. I too will have to shop around for another cable company. I cant believe this company is trying to challenge a company that is as big as Fox. Get real Mr. Joseph Clayton or watch your company side down wall street.

This has gone on long enough, this is a form of censorship whether or not you are involved with the White House or not, is to stop FOX NEWS from reporting on the facts, unlike Obama’s netorks msnbc,cnn,abc,nbc, cbs and now dish! I understand that I have a contract with dish, you mite as well cancel it, for as soon as possible I will drop you like you dropped FOX! Within a year you (dish network) will be on FOX NEWS as a news report of your company filing for bankruptcy, and it will be of your own doing !

OK…ATTENTION ALL DISH NETWORK CUSTOMERS/CONSUMERS!!!!!! I have found that when you really want ACTION…TAKE IT TO THE HEAD OFFICE!!

I have dealt with other Companies that have “Tech”, on-line or on the phone that have told me “I am as “high” up as you can go! REALLY? I guess these people think that we really are uneducated! I am here to say that I am educated and know what and where to find the information that I need to go “higher” up than someone that answers the call on the Customer Service Line! Below you will find the numbers of someone that might be able to help you more! GOOD LUCK!! Oh and as much I wish it did, this has NOTHING to do with DISH Network dropping FOX !

wow what a disappointment. I was sent a personal invitation to receive a “pick your bundle today” from Christine Wilson V.P. Marketing. you could get 39 movie channels for $30.00/month (hbo, starz, cinamax, encore) for six months. we thought that was a good idea so I called and the person said for $30.00 you get 31 channels….? what the? I told him I just got the flyer and it was addressed to me, even had my name on it. he said it must be a mistake… I would have to pay extra if I wanted 39 channels.
again dish has proven to be dishonest. not only does my bill keep going up, now they have removed fox… and most of the channels are crap… info commercials. I think im ready to go to direct, at least I know what im in for. and by the way I don’t have a contract with them… im free to do as I see fit.
