Hi all I just bought two lcd's for the bedrooms and trying to upgrade to have a 612 on each tv. I have a 622 in living room but don't want to run the sd feed to bedroom. I called and they said $75.00 for each receiver and a new 2 year agreement. Is that a fair deal or should i try to haggle some more?

I would call back and haggle some more and see if you can get it for no cost since you have to enter another 2 year contract.

I got a 622 at no cost and when they came to install said they were out so brought me a 722 free. What I did was talk with first operator for awhile and when I said I don't think I should have to pay, been with Dish over 5 years, asked to speak to a supervisor. She was excellent. No hassles at all. Just gave me what I asked for. Not sure you can get two units for free.

You might want to try and tell them you're thinking of switching to Direct TV. It's amazing what they will do then to avoid losing a customer.
