DISH Network's Flex 24 (low credit) promotion

Generalized Credit Chart

The green section represents customers that qualify for our best deals. The yellow section represents customers that qualify for the Flex 24 promotion. A very small number (red section) of people will not qualify for either promotion. These customers typically have no credit history, or an extremely low credit score.

Flex 24 is DISH Network's low-credit plan. If you do not qualify for the primary promotion (called DHA) then consider the Flex 24. Standard definition equipment, including a multi-room DVR, is offered without an upgrade fee for two rooms. The free premiums promotion applies for the first three months and you will still receive a monthly discount on your bill for the first year when you select one of our most popular packages. There is a one time fee of $49 to activate a Flex 24 account.

Below is a detailed guide to the Flex 24 Promotion

We always recommend placing an application for the primary promotion first, even if you think you will not pass. If you do not pass, then see if you qualify for Flex 24 (you probably will). The application process is simple and only take a matter of minutes.

Activation Fee: A Brief History
The Flex24 promotion recently changed it's Activation fee from $99 to $49. It had been as low as $79 but is now currently at the lowest rate in the company's history. This is a great opportunity to save even more money on DISH, especially if you have less than stellar credit.

The $49 Activation Fee
Flex 24 customers pay a one-time activation fee of $49 prior to installation. You can pay this fee when you place your order, or we can place the order On Hold for Payment. If the order is on hold you have a variety of options to pay: (1) credit, debit, or prepaid card by phone or chat, (2) with cash at a local vendor, or (3) you can even pay with a check or electronic funds transfer. Our operators are familiar with all of these payment methods and are standing by to assist you.

A note about HD requirements in relation to the Flex 24

In some areas DISH Network will only allow accounts to be created with High Definition (HD) equipment. This is usually desirable for new customers, however a Flex 24 customer may not want to pay the additional fees associated with upgrading to an HD receiver. While DISH requiring HD equipment on a new account for a Flex 24 customer is rare, it is possible. This possibility cannot be known until one of our representatives have qualified you for service.
