TV Dish Agreements

Last November, I agreed to purchase a program that cost about $37 a month plus tax for one year. After that time, the price would go up by $15. So, after a few months, I added Encore. That's what I agreed to.

In June, I was paying $45 a month. This bill is $60. Obviously that's a 33 1/3 % raise in the charge. And in November it will go up, in accordance with the plan. So, I would imagine it will be over $70. It seems to me that since the company has changed the plan I agreed to, I should not be bound by it. I want to quit the company. Any one know the law applying? I hate to see them get away with this. I should have known better.

Contract Termination

Once there is a valid contract between parties, it can end in several ways. A contract may have a limited time span and finish at the end of the stated time. If a person is hired to work for two weeks, the contract concludes at the end of two weeks. In many instances in which there is a specific time frame stated in the contract, parties to the contract may have the option to extend the contract for a longer period of time. Contracts also may be project-specific, not time-specific. Goods or services may be contracted for a project and upon the completion of the project, the contract ends. Parties to a contract may mutually agree to rescind the contract, in which case the parties may agree on the duties and responsibilities of each party after the rescission. A contract also may end because of a breach. A breach occurs when a person does not fulfill his or her responsibilities as promised in the contract. A breach may be minor or major. A minor breach is one that affects small, minor details of the agreement and may not affect the outcome of the contract. A major breach is one that affects the subject matter of the contract and very likely will affect the outcome of the contract. This is also known as a "breach of a material issue." When there has been a breach in a contract, the question of damages is raised.
Found at Pennsylvania Contract Law

It might be considered a breach since they changed the terms of the oringal contract by upping the agreed upon price. You might want to call them and ask for a manager to see if they will honor the original terms.

Another thing to consider after you talk to them if they don't fix the issue file a complaint with the BBB BBB Consumer and Business Reviews, Reports, Ratings, Complaints and Accredited Business Listings - U.S. BBB Unfortunaly you have to try to fix it with the company first.
