How to Avoid Dish Network Cancellation Fees with DoNotPay

Dish Network is a leading provider of satellite television services. You may decide you want to cancel your service for any number of reasons--the bill is too costly, you've had poor service, or maybe you want to get rid of television altogether. No matter what the reason, if you are still under contract, you may find yourself wondering . Fortunately, DoNotPay can help you understand how to fight fees efficiently, and even do it on your behalf!

Dish Network Early Termination Fees

All Dish Network packages currently include a 2-Year TV Price Guarantee, which means that you are guaranteed the advertised price for two years, provided you meet credit qualifications and eAutoPay. This is also a 2-year commitment on your part, and if you early, you will incur an early termination fee of $20 per month that remains on the contract.

Can You Avoid Early Termination Fees with Dish Network?

When you sign up with Dish Network and agree to their contract, it is probably going to be hard to get out of the early termination fee. However, there are some things you can do to try to have the fee waived. No matter how your conversation goes, keep a detailed record of who you speak to and what the final agreement is.

1. Read Your Contract

Read through your contract and verify that you received the services you were promised. If you received spotty service, regularly had technicians at your residence for repairs, or didn't receive all the channels that your package included, you may have a good case to request a

2. Temporarily Suspend Your Service

If you are experiencing a temporary hardship, will be traveling extensively, or would otherwise benefit from a temporary suspension of service rather than complete cancellation, you may be able to work out an arrangement with Dish Network.

3. Determine If It Is Worth Keeping Your Service

If you only have a short period of time left on your contract, you may decide you would rather have the service instead. You should be able to drop extra channels and services for the remainder of your contract to lower your bill in the meantime.

4. Just Ask for the Waiver

If you are at the very end of your contract, have had an exceptional payment history, and are polite, you may get an agent (or their supervisor) who will grant you a fee waiver.

5. Be Firm

Be prepared for customer service agents to do everything in their power to retain you as a customer. If you know you want or need to cancel service, be polite, but firm. You will have to resist "special deals" and "premium access" and "free trials" or anything else they may offer. You could end up back under contract or with "free channels" that will eventually end up costing you more than the cancellation fees would've been.

6. Avoid Other Fees

To avoid additional Dish Network fees, make sure you return your equipment in a timely manner so you don't get charged additional fees. It's also important to examine your last bill early to make sure there are no hidden fees and that your final bill is correct.
