Dish TV has launched a “Tuned In To You” campaign aimed at combating low customer satisfaction with pay-TV. “Customers just want to be heard in an industry that has forsaken its ability to listen,” said Erik Carlson, Dish president and COO. “‘Tuned In To You’ is more than a marketing slogan. It’s a company-wide rallying cry and a long-term business philosophy.” The initiative includes TV spots featuring a “spokeslistener,” immersive training of corporate employees to gain practical experience with customers, and feedback forms across every Dish.com web page. Dish lost upwards of 420,000 customers during the first three quarters of 2016.
