Fox Attacks Dish Network's Legal Moves Over Auto Hop
Jun 12, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Hollywood Reporter
Broadcaster believes that reading The Hollywood Reporter's legal coverage and having fast feet shouldn't give Dish right to litigate in New York.
I donít understand why CBS, FOX, & NBC execs donít want us to enjoy commercial-free TV. Iím a DISH employee Ė AutoHop is great because you can easily watch commercial-free TV. Public Knowledge, a consumer advocacy group, is taking a stand for consumers by creating a petition that tells CBS, FOX, & NBC media to keep their hands out of your living room & DVR. Sign their petition to keep control of how you watch TV http://bit.ly/KFdn1Q
Because they want to make MONEY!!
DONT KNOW WHY DISH NETWORK IS STILL IN BUSINESS.
YEARS AGO, I GOT A DISH FROM DISH NETWORK FOR MY GODSON, WHOSE FATHER AND MOTHER WERE KNOWN NOT TO BE ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH THEIR MONTHLY PAYMENTS ON ALMOST ANYTHING. THERE WERE SOME MONTHS THEY DID NOT HAVE ELECTRICITY DUE TO NOT PAYING THAT PARTICULAR BILL ON TIME.
AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME, THEY HAD ELECTRICITY, BUT THEY DID NOT HAVE CABLE OR SATELLITE.
I CLEARED THIS WITH DISH NETWORK, GOT BASIC PROGRAMMING FOR MY GODSON AND HIS SIBLINGS SO THAT THEY WOULD STAY OFF THE STREETS. I GAVE THEM MY CREDIT CARD, TELLING THEM I WOULD PAY FOR THE CABLE MYSELF.
TO MAKE SURE MY GODSON'S MOTHER AND DAD WOULD NOT ADD MORE CHANNELS TO THE LINEUP, DISH NETWORK SUGGESTED I PLACE A PASSWORD ON THE ACCOUNT AND OF COURSE THE ACCOUNT WAS IN MY NAME.
THE FOLLOWING MONTH, WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE, DISH NETWORK ALLOWED MY GODSON'S FATHER TO CHANGE THE ACCOUNT OVER TO HIS NAME AND HIS FATHER ADDED A COUPLE OF PREMIUM CHANNELS. THERE WAS NO WAY MY GODSON'S FATHER OR MY GODSON WOULD HAVE KNOWN THE PASSWORD TO PREVENT THIS. ONE GOOD THING, MY GODSON'S FATHER TOLD DISH NETWORK HE WAS WILLING TO SEND IN THE PAYMENTS HIMSELF.
A COUPLE MONTHS LATER, DISH NETWORK TERMINATED THE SERVICE DUE TO NON-PAYMENT. I KNEW THAT THIS WAS PERHAPS GOING TO HAPPEN AND THIS WAS WHY I PLACED A PASSWORD ON MY ACCOUNT.
SOME GOOD IT DID TO SUGGEST TO ME, TO PUT A PASSWORD ON MY ACCOUNT. NO ONE, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE COULD HAVE EVEN GUESSED THE PASSWORD I USED.
WHEN I COMPLAINED TO DISH NETWORK, ALL THEY WOULD SAY IS THAT I MUST HAVE GIVEN OUT MY PASSWORD. ON THE CONTRARY, I BELIEVE THEY ALLOWED MY GODSON'S FATHER TO SWITCH THE ACCOUNT OVER TO HIS NAME, PRIMARILY TO SELL MORE PROGRAMMING.
IF THIS KIND OF THING HAPPENED TO ME, JUST THINK WHAT A NEIGHBOR OR ENEMY CAN DO TO YOUR PROGRAMMING AND YOUR MONTHLY BILL. ALL ONE HAS TO DO IS TO KNOW YOUR NAME, CALL DISH UP AND PROMISE TO ADD ON MORE CHANNELS.
Forget dish and cable! You can get free digital TV right off the airwaves!!
