Dish Network Questions - As more folks return to Mexico after the summer, we're receiving many service calls reporting Dish Network satellite TV system outages. If you unplugged your receiver for more than a few weeks, it will lose its activation since it can no longer receive the monthly Dish Network reactivation signals. You'll know this has happened because you'll see messages such as, "Your receiver is not authorized to receive this channel.." when you change channels.

Armed with your Dish Network account information, a call to Dish Network's Technical Support Center (800 333 3474) will usually correct the problem. Tell them you have been away on vacation, you left your receiver unplugged, and you simply need a "rehit." In some cases, you may need to update your credit card information.

If instead, you see an error message on your TV such as "Progress 0 of 5.." that never progresses, or "The satellite signal has been lost...," these are indications your dish may have been blown off the satellite, you have a bad cable or connecter, or the outdoor electronics on the dish have failed. A call to Dish Network will not help in these cases, and they may even try to send a technician to your US address to fix the problem :). These are signs of equipment problems, and not Dish Network account issues that can be fixed over the phone.

In some cases, customers said they had also heard rumours that Dish Network was shutting down service to Mexico. This is misinformation, probably due to some people having account issues or pirated receivers that were shut off. In fact, Dish Network replaced their main satellite in early summer of this year, and signals in BCS actually improved from the new satellite. Communications satellites cost several hundred million dollars to build and launch, and are designed to last from 10 to 20 years. Although no one can guarantee that Dish Network service will always be available outside the US, it's very unlikely Dish Network will want to replace this new satellite anytime soon. - Alan, Baja Satellite, alan [ -at- ] bajasatellite.com, www.bajasatellite.com
