Is this not price fixing?

I tried to get Dish TV, but out of seven companies all had the same price. Is this not price fixing?

    It's not considered illegal price fixing when a company forces dealers to sell their specific product the same price.  Illegal price fixing would be if both Dish, Direct tv, and Comcast set their prices exactly the same.    Regardless it's different for a company like Dish since your monthly service is through Dish, not the dealer.   Dish dealers get paid by dish to install it.  That's it.

    If you contacted these different companies all about Dish, then, no. Any more than different locations of a food franchise or any other franchise or chain would mean you pay the same price for an identical order.

    No.

    If DirecTV offered exactly the same service for the same price as Dish,

    that Might be price fixing,

    but it could also simply be good old competition.
