Dish Network Raising Prices...Again
Got a notice in the mail the other day from Dish Network that they'll be raising prices by $5.00 come next month. That's twice in two years. They raised it by $5.00 back in 2011, too, if memory serves me correct. With the new price increase, we'll be paying around $50.00 a month. At this rate, they might end up more expensive than Suddenlink before long.
Or will they?
Checking the Suddenlink page it's hard to tell just what they offer. From their web site, it looks like their basic TV service might start at $56.00 a month for over 200 channels- the vast majority of which I don't want or need.
They had some other deals I had to look for. They seemed to be bundles but were hard for me to make heads or tails of. This, from the company that thinks nothing of sending me sometimes three mailers a day trying to get me to switch!
Dish still seems to beat cable at this point, at least if they let me downgrade to their Dish America plan which lists now at $29.99 a month. That should put us at around $35.00 a month after their price increase which, pricewise, is right back where we started at with most all the channels we usually watch.
If Dish goes up another $5.00 bucks in a year or two, we'll take a more serious look at going back to cable.
