If you are a DISH customer who pays a monthly bill for the company's services, but you would like to lower your bill, here is an easy to follow guide explaining how.
You are a DISH Network customer because the company offers great TV and internet packages, and you can manage your account, payments, and bundle online. However, the cost of your monthly DISH bill has increased to a price you are unhappy with or unable to afford, so you would like to lower your bill.
If you are willing to change your bundle or negotiate your bill with the DISH team, it is possible to lower the price you pay for your DISH network.
Find out how.
The easiest way to lower your DISH bill is to cancel the optional add-ons you are paying for. Some channels cost up to $20 per month, and if these channels are not essential to your daily viewing, it is well worth considering giving them up.
If you would like to remove channels from your package, you can do so via your online account, or you can call the customer service team. You can find the customer service contact details on the GetHuman website.
Are you currently paying for a DVR receiver? If you are, you could save money from your monthly bill by swapping to a standard digital receiver.
Switching to a standard receiver could save you $10 per month, so if you no longer need your DVR receiver, this is the best way to lower your DISH bill.
The easiest way to change your receiver is to contact the DISH customer service team; the contact details can be found on the GetHuman website
Make sure that the bundle you are paying for is the best bundle for your needs, as the package you chose when you first set up your DISH account might not be the best option for you anymore.
Check the bundle you are currently paying for via your online DISH account and look at the bundles advertised on the DISH website to see if any are more suitable for your needs.
If you don't want to change your add-ons, receiver, or bundle, you can try to negotiate your rate with the DISH customer service team.
Before you contact DISH, consider the options that competitors are offering. If other companies have cheaper deals you similar packages, you can use this information in your negotiation.
When negotiating your bill, explain that you consider the package too expensive and directly suggest the changes you would like to make. Negotiations don't always work, but if you are polite and persistent, you are far more likely to strike a deal with the DISH team.
If you would like to change your bundle, remove extras, or switch your receiver but have been unable to do so after following these steps, you may need to contact the customer service team. You can find the customer service contact details for DISH on the GetHuman website.
