4. Charlene purchased a compact satellite dish as a part of a contract to obtain satellite television service. Charlene owns a small bar and plans to use the dish and cable service in her bar. The contract provided that she pay $200.00 for the dis, after which she would receive 12 months of television service through the satellite dish at no charge. After 12 months, in order to receive continued service she would have to pay the company's regular price of $21,00, or her dish would be disabled. The dish is specially manufactured such that id can only receive only signals provided by the company that provided her with the dish. The company installed the dish in Charlene's bar as provided in the contract. For the first couple of months, Charlene was happy with the service.
It was less expensive than regular cable television and quality f the picture was superior. In the fourth month of the contract, Charlene began having problems. First, the dish became slightly warped. Second the signals began to fail frequently, at least once a week when bar patrons are not watching. The warping of the dis appears to have affected the quality of the picture. Charlene had a friend hold the dish and push it into its original shape, while Charlene watched the television and the picture improved as long as the friend held the dish. The company refuses to address Charlene's complaints. Discuss whether the Uniform commercial Code or common law would apply in resolving each of Charlene's problems.
