Mystern encountered this error message, which reads “Acquiring satellite signal,” while strolling by an unmanned Dish Network kiosk at a Utah mall.
“I thought it was a rather apt representation of the service you typically get from Dish. In addition to the service for the display being out entirely, there is no representative manning the kiosk to assist with problems. Maybe he’s outside fixing the position of the dish?”
If you’ve subscribed to Dish, how often does a message like this pop up on your screen?
