I’m a pay TV aficionado and have subscribed to both Dish Network, DirecTV and cable TV at one time or another Amid all the rants and raves you see on the Internet about how bad satellite TV and cable TV are, I personally think they are the best thing since sliced bread. They’re much better than over-the-air analog TV, you can record all your favorite shows, get thousands of streaming videos, and it provides endless entertainment for less than a dollar a day.

Dish Network Review

If you are considering switching to satellite TV, you are not alone, as many people across the nation are making the change everyday and saving themselves a great deal of money doing so. Bidding farewell to the cable television you’ve become used to would not be easy, but what is even more difficult is trying to determine the best satellite TV Company to settle with. That choice is down to your personal preference and trust that you won’t be disappointed. You have an option of two leading satellite TV companies to choose from, with both offering similar channels, but one of them stands out for some peculiar features which include, but not limited to picture quality and programming options. This option is DISH Network.

So What is good and bad about

DISH Network?

Availabile Nation-wide The availability of satellite TV to all parts of the country remains one of its greatest advantages. DISH Network is one of the few TV providers that can be accessed in all the 50 states in America. If you can get a clear view of the southern sky, the DISH Network Service should be strong enough for you. Satellite TV satisfies those in the city and those in the rural community who cannot access cable networks.

Great number of DVR options

With DISH Network, you get access to quite a number of advanced DVR options. ‘Hopper’ is one of the most advanced options. Up to four TV’s can connect to it through small receivers known as Joeys. With a 2TB hard drive, you don’t have to worry about running out of space to record all your shows with a hopper. There are a range of HD and SD DVRs on the DISH Network and all of these in picture-in-picture facility as well as a variety of options for the sports fans.

Competitive pricing on all

packages

While some major TV providers still provide packages that cost more than $100 per month, DISH Network’s packages range from $19.99 - $96.99 a month with up to40+ to  290+ channels for your viewing pleasure, depending on the package you want. DISH satisfies everyone,, whether you need a cheap entry level package or the high end stuff. Just with every other thing, DISH Network comes with its flaws too.

The impact of weather on the

service

One of satellite TV’s biggest weakness is the impact weather has on it. Although this is not an issue for many customers, others that live in certain area with extreme seasonal weather conditions may experience temporary interruption in reception. These usually goes away as the weather clears up, but if you live an area where weather might be a constant problem, a more traditional cable service might be better.

24-months Contract commitment

Some people are okay with DISH’s 24 months contract commitment since they want to enjoy it for the long term, but for people looking for a short term TV solution, this might be a problem. It is advisable to understand your contract before taking it, or you might incur unexpected fees for cancelling early. You can try out other TV providers offering short-term deals.

A satellite must be installed

DISH can only be enjoyed through a satellite dish. You can get a professional DISH technician to install a small dish for you. For those in an apartment, you may have to take more time to get a suitable place for your dish or get the landlord to choose a great place for it. Keep this at the back of your mind when shopping for TV service.
