If the sales agent has waived certain requirements of this offer, please retain that record and make present at the time of redemption request.

    2. In addition to the rules above, you are only eligible for a gift with purchase if DISH attributes your activation to SSN / DISH Installation, Inc (the operator of this website). If you cancel your order with DISH to sign up with a different retailer you will not be eligible for this offer. This is true even if someone cancels your order on your behalf without informing you of this potential consequence
  13. You understand the equipment configuration that is being ordered, and any and all fees and/or one-time charges that may be associated with such equipment. Any one-time charges will be applied to the payment method supplied at the time of ordering (examples: credit card, debit card, check, prepaid card, etc ...). You will be notified before placing your order by the sales consultant or the order entry system if a one-time fee is required.

HD receivers will be included on accounts in what DISH designates as "Eastern Arc" geographic locations and customers who wish to be "HD Enabled". All other customers are required to expressly order HD equipment if it is desired.

Same is true for HD-DVR models, however with the HD-DVR Dual Tuner you can record up to two HD / SD / Combination of programs simultaneously.
    3. DISH may force HD receivers or Hopper configurations on some orders.

  15. Channels and Channel Packages: Our site caters to a national audience. For that reason we list all possible channels available in a given package. Not all channels expressed on our website are necessarily available in all areas. This is especially true for regional sports programming and other types of local channels. Local channels and their geographic availability is a strictly regulated area of the telecommunications industry. Please double-check with your sales consultant if you have a specific question about channel availability.
    1. Regional Sports: There are many regional sports stations available through DISH Network. These are typically the FOX Sports, Comcast Sports, or COX Sports channels but can often go by strictly branded names like MSG, Big Ten, SportSouth, SUN, etc ... Please check availability through your sales consultant.
    2. Local Channels: DISH determines eligibility for and serves local channels based on your service address. The local channels you are eligible for/receive are non-negotiable. Do not assume the local channels you will receive. If you're concerned about which specific local channels you are going to receive, please ask, otherwise it is possible they will not be mentioned to you in advance.
    3. Favorite Channels: DISH has divided their available channels into separately priced and featured channel packages. The channels available in each package are non-negotiable. If there are certain channels that you'd like in your programming package please double check the channel listing or specifically ask the sales consultant about them. Sometimes during the course of an order/application this question is not brought up or answered in a specific way by the customer. SSN is not responsible for any damages that occur if you order a package and later find that it does not include a channel you were expecting but did not express that during the ordering process.
    4. Channel Listing Accuracy: SSN warrants the channel listings and prices on this website are accurate to the best of our ability. SSN will never intentionally list inaccurate data on this web site. It is not uncommon for DISH to alter the channels in their lineups, channels' availability, or alter the price of packages, features, or a la carte selections. Sometimes it takes a period of time for these changes to be communicated to us by DISH and subsequently implemented on SSN's website. This has the potential to cause some discrepancies. While these discrepancies are rare we must inform you that we have no ability to alter what DISH is offering. If our site displays information/data that does not coincide with DISH's policies then the DISH policy will always supersede ours by virtue of the fact that DISH Network is the service provider, not SSN.
    5. Discrepancies: SSN will handle channel or pricing discrepancies on a case-by-case basis.

  16. It is your responsibility to understand the programming prices associated with your order. When ordering a qualifying DHA 24 or Flex24 promotion you will likely qualify for several promotional credits, discounts, and/or rebates. After the promotion period expires you will pay the normal rates for everything ordered. These differences are known as promotional pricing, and regular / normal pricing schedules (respectively). Some of the promotions require the customer to perform certain duties (rebates) and or consent to certain DISH Network policies.

  17. Qualifications, Warranty, Billing, and Cancellations


  18. To receive the promotional incentives associated with the DHA or Flex24 program you must maintain a minimum of America's Top 120, or equivalent or higher-level programming.

  19. If your order includes "free" incentives such as premium movie channel packages, HD programming, or other similar incentives with temporary restrictions (ex: free for three months) those items will resume and appear on your bill after the promotional period has expired, unless you expressly opt out (cancel) of these programs / subscriptions prior to their expiration. We recommend cancelling these subscriptions at least two weeks prior to the end of the stated promotional period.

  20. If you elected to put your account on Credit and/or Debit Card AutoPay, you understand and agree: All future bills will automatically be presented to your card for payment on your billing due date.

    1. In some places, our site will display text similar to " Offer ends soon ". This is dynamic text, generated each time a user visits the site. This refers to the SSN Mail-in rebate, not the offers presented by DISH Network. DISH controls the expiration dates of their promotions, not SSN. The SSN Mail-In rebate, and its availability to new customers, is evaluated on a daily basis. It is scheduled to expire at the end of each day. SSN reserves the right to extend this promotion on consecutive days at their sole discretion.
  24. Your order / application for service is based on approved credit. Your personal information (provided to us by you) will be used to perform a credit check.
