Default ending 2 year contract

I am not satisfied with DN and would like to end my contract.
Any heads up on how to go about it would be appreciated. I am aware that I will have to pay an early termination fee.


PS been with them for 3 months and moving house very soon.

Of course, they have Dishmover, so you can't use the excuse that they will not help you set up. Maybe someone knows the fine print or read it again, there may an out for relocation.
All that aside, be civil and sincere about it, call, and plead your case. If the CSR experience turns sour for whatever reason, keep your cool, write a clear and precise email to CEO at Dishnetwork. Offer your phone number and willingness to discuss the issue. Best of luck!
Just remember, they can do whatever they want, including waiving or reducing the fee.

Default why are u disastisfied

I would think if you're unhappy with the service if u talk to a supervisor and have a legitimate reason they should let you go.
I have been with them for 3 years after Voom went out and am very ahppy with their service-is there something I am missing?

I believe the fee is $250.00 on an 18 month commitment, but they prorate you something like 13.88 a month for every month you complete of your commitment. Example if you still have 15 months commitment you owe $208.20. Just call them and say you ant to end early.

Check your contract for exact numbers

Get out of the contract without a early cancellation fee? Why would DISH agree to that? If they gave you a free install the whole idea is that you stay with DISH for 24 months... For those out there that might be considering DISH but dont want a contract they do have an option when you can get a No Commit DHA but you hav eto pay a 99 activation fee. Its your choice
