Dish Network ViP622 DVR: $99 after April 1st.

02-13-2006, 01:57 PM
I just gave Dish Network a call to setup HD programming with an HD DVR receiver. I was told by the CSR that, If I wanted the ViP 622 it would be $299.99 right now but if I waited to call after April 1st the receiver would cost me $99.99. I was also told that an extra dish would be required to receive HD channels and it would be provided to me for free. Has anyone else had the same price quote?

Lots of variation.

The $200 rebate is aimed at those trading up to a 622 from earlier HD DVRs. like the 921 and 942.

Recently, some of us were told if we waited until April 1st we would get a $100 rebate, for trading up from other receivers.

I think it wise to wait until April 1st for any upgrade. Only because there have been some problems with the new receivers. But it's your money, and your choice.

And if you don't have a DVR, believe me, it's worth waiting for. Especially if it will handle HD.
