Just to follow on the discussion above, on deals from dish...
The new Sonic / Dish TV promotion is insulting to Sonic's customers. The teaser price for the first year is almost half the full price, which is locked in for another year, after which the customer is pretty much locked into the service via the installed equipment. If you force a 2 year contract, then quote the full 2-year price, plus the ongoing full price. That at least would be simple decency.
Our offering is with DIRECTV rather than Dish, but the point stands - thanks for making it. I appreciate the feedback.
