How Can I Get the Company, Dish, To Stop Charging Me To Use My Own Hardware?

Dish Company

Episode 1763

Jerry from Hatfield, PA

Jerry complained to the FCC about having to pay to use his own satellite equipment. A few days later, he got a call from Dish, assuring him that he's being charged half because he is a preferredĀ customer. And they explained that it's not the equipment, it that he's using a DVR inside the equipment. And they see them separate. Leo says it sounds like DISH is exploiting a loophole. The trick is to make complaints en masse.
