What do you guys think?

Anyone see a better deal on the DISH 6000? for HD?

The guy at DishDepot told me I could get that and the $9 programming for $399.

I would love to buy it locally but I don't think anyone is going to match that deal.

What packages do I need to get the HD showtime, HBO? Will I also get a HD cbs feed?


just wondering if anyone has seen better deal than this.


Thanks for any info

I'm also looking into getting the DISH 6023 model. This one has the 6000 receiver, 20" DISH 500 and 18" Dish (to be used for the 61.5 HD sat.) From my research, Dish Depot seams to be pretty good. Also Dish USA, All Sat, and New Adv. Tech (NAT). They are all about $400 for the 6023 system and include the free basic install kit. The big difference right now seams to be the ability to get the "I Like 9" with that price, without getting professional installation. I spoke to NAT yesterday, and I think I can get the "I Like Nine" with their $399 price. Dish Depot however has a wavier that you must sign that says you won't get the "I Like Nine"...least that is what is says on their website. Anyone else out there have any info on this?


Thanks,

Steve

Hmm..I called dishdepot this morning and the guy told me I could get the $399 deal and get the $9 deal too.


I may call back to clarify this.

If I get the $9 deal I will still have to get the HBO and SHO package right? What package is the CBS HD channel on?

We may have a problem. The 6023 deal is NOT on dishdepot.com anymore!. It was on there just a few hours ago.


guess I will wait and see

I posted a NEW THREAD about this, as it appears DISH will be cracking down on these discounted Net Sales and will NOT allow buyers to have the $9 a month promo without professional installation.


My father bought from Dish Depot yesterday evening. Talk about last minute timing.

I have been reading and researching the heck out of Dish deals and I am just about to go with a local guy. Take AllSat for example.


The Dish 6023 is $400 if you self-install it. I want the "I like 9" deal so I will need to have it professionally installed. AllSat lists this for $160, but that is only for a standard install. The additional dish installation (for HDTV) I have heard from this forum is an additional $99, but for now let's say it's $50. Shipping at AllSat is $20

Total for Dish HDTV set-up and "I Like Nine": $630


The local guy I called up was very nice. We talked about his price versus the internet prices, both of us agreeing it was confusing. He offered me the 6023 with installed for $600 but after talking a bit (my house is pre-wired) he offered me $550. He also offered me an additional reciever at his cost (501 for $320) and would run that one through the home distribution at no additional cost. Add tax for a comparison price.


Here's where is gets confusing, and how I think I have it figured out. The "I like 9" requires professional installation, but the deal says standard installation is free. I think that somehow the internet dealers are discounting the package by keeping some kind of installation credit. This is the only way I can think they're able to make money (or break even) on selling the hardware with a free self-install kit. If you buy over the net and want professional installation, which is the only kosher way to get "I Like 9", you'll need to contact an installer. It is hard enough establishing a relationship with a dealer, let alone an installer.


I am 99% sure I am going locally to get my system. By the way, I asked how long it would take from buy to install. The local guy told me 2 days. Two days is awsome and to me worth the potential extra, had I mis-interpreted the pricing. How many of you pay for express shipping when you order online?


Hope this helps...

Hi Nick-


The name of the company is Jena and I spoke with Ken. I was referred to them by The Big Picture in Louisville. I sent you an email with more detail.
