talked to guy who answers the phone and his manager and was told to same
I would really need more information to properly answer this question, but you are expected to read a contract and a bill. However, if you truly do not have the service, you should not be charged.
I agree that more information is needed to answer your question. For example, what is your goal? Do you not want to pay the charges for services for which you do not believe you were contractually obligated? Is this bill in collections? Do you still have services through Dish? Are you trying to settle the bill or just understand the contract? Please provide more information so we may assist you better. Thanks.
It sounds like they have been charging you for something for a long time and maybe you just noticed that the service or feature was on your bill when it was not supposed to be? If that has been going on for a long period of time, then under Tennessee law, you probably are liable for the bill because the failure to dispute a bill generally means you agree with the bill ( even if you don't or can't pay it). Its called an "account stated." I am assuming the service was indeed provided, in other words, it you didn't get the service, then the bill is a mistake on their part. I don't think any court would make you pay for something you never got, but they will make you pay for things you got the benefit of, but didn't notify the company promptly to correct their bill.
