What exactly is Digital Home Advantage?

I've been scouring their site for 30 minutes and can't find anything other than a mention in passing. $50 credit for new subscribers with an 18 month commitment.

Anyone know?

OK, I found this:

I guess it means I lease from them rather than buying my equipment?

Yes Dish is now leasing the equipment… this has a big advantage if something breaks. The lease fee is built in to the programming package prices. Dish has receivers that can service 2 rooms which saves you on additional receiver fees.

IMPORTANT BEFORE YOU BUY… If you have Sprint telephone you can bundle your DISH billing with your Sprint billing and get and additional $5/month discount. Call Sprint for details.

I have Sprint and they always 'forget' to take off the $5. Sprint sucks ass!

Nice equipment also. My reciever didn't last a month. Sure they will send me a new one, $55 shipping and I also pay to ship the old(new) one back. 'No, you can't come and pick it up.' It will only let me watch one room at a time, I'm not paying so I will suffer.

I'm ready to change to Direct.
