    Hi,

    Dish is offering a new HD package to new subscribers and we have been with Dish for 2 1/2 years.

    Have not called yet to inquire about the package but anticipate that we will be told that the new HD package will not be avialable to us since we are not new subscribers. Has anyone encounetered this ? Is there a way around the new subscriber dish policy.

    Currently, this is the only way to get HD receiption. Cable
    is not availabe and OTA is out.

    Really ready to purchase a Sony KDF --WE655 but cannot
    see it if we can't get the HD.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I'm not understanding what you are looking for ....

    Stuff for free?

    The programming is going to cost $10 per month.

    The receivers: try Dishnetwork.com. Log on to your account, and then click the appropriate link to see if you are qualified for any HD equipment upgrades.

    I've been with Dish for 7 years, and I can't say I really expected to get something for nothing in terms of a HD receiver. I paid $99 to upgrade my old receiver to a Dish 811, but that was just over a year ago.

    Try the web site, or call Dish.

    Bob, you can lease the 811 HD receiver for $5.00 per month, it's a great deal.
