I just wanted to share a personal experience while researching DirecTv and Dish Network in the Caribbean. I do know of ways in getting these here in Belize, but it's not good when the advertised seller will not discuss sales over the phone and when you insist, it turns into a full-blown attitude problem.

STAY AWAY FROM: Dish Network in The Caribbean

After insisting on talking to him via phone, he insisted that no talk is needed outside of email and then after a response sent to him that stated a phone call is a must before any sales transaction, I received this (swear words have been masked):

Lick your momma. I am doing more business than you can imagine. You homeless rat.

The mind boggles. eek

I would send his emails to someone up high at Dish. I am sure they would not want someone like that representing their product anywhere in the world.

I've sent it into their customer service form from their website. If anyone else has a better email address for someone higher, please let me know and I'll be happy to let them know.

This guy/company is still harassing me in email.

No problem. I have over 10,000 sites ups and running. I can give you the contact at dish to write to you a**hole scum.

i was doing a bit of research on another topic and came across this thread. i supply dish network to many resorts and individuals in the islands. i am well aquainted with " the specialist " and your opinions are well founded. if you still want dish ( and its the best programming and well worth the investment ) feel free to contact me . i have both a sint maarten and US number and don't mind calls at all.
