Fortunately, Dish Network Chat Is Open More Than 2.75 Hours Per Day

After seeing our post where we highlighted that Walmart’s customer service chat only appeared to be open for one minute per week, Donald wrote in to show us that while Dish Network isn’t quite as bad, their chat only appeared to be open for two hours and forty-five minutes per day, seven days a week. The Walmart chat site wasn’t live, though, and the wacky hours posted at Dish aren’t real either.


Before we could check in with Dish to see whether this was some kind of special program to cut back on chat representative hours, we looked at the website as it stands now. As it turns out, they’ve changed the hours, and the evening chat thing was clearly a typo that substituted “7:00 P.M.” for 7:00 A.M.
