       Reviews "Have been a dish TV customer for many years. Great Service - Nice to have internet available." Joanna H Billings, Montana "I have been with DirecTV for 9 years and have loved every minute. A couple of years ago, I called DTV when my job was not giving raises & they reduced my bill by $20/month!  They have the best customer service I have ever seen. ...This is a 5-Star operation that I would (& do) recommend to anyone." Lisa J. Durham, NC “I had cox cable for many years, and I want to say it is great to be with dish network again. I have the hopper, I like this because I can watch tv anywhere I go on my ipad 2, say like if i'm at an hotel, or somewhere.”   Cameron Roanoke City,VA "We are brand new customers and have run into a few problems (primarily things that were simply a lack of understanding on our part)! All issues were addressed promptly and efficiently by your very knowledgeable and highly trained personnel! We are an older couple and everyone has gone above and beyond to be kind and helpful! Our sincerest thanks!" Nancy K. Culpeper, Virginia

Cable TV Vs. Satellite TV - Which One Is The Best?

On the face of it, cable TV is pretty similar to satellite TV when it comes to programming, equipment, picture, and sound. But there are some important differences you should be aware of before you purchase a subscription TV service. Here is a review of satellite TV versus cable TV: Price Because cable TV companies are required to pay local area taxes and fees, cable TV costs $15 to $25 more per month than satellite TV. Satellite TV companies are not required to pay these fees. If I were to purchase cable where I live, it would cost me $65 a month for 140 channels. Satellite TV in my area costs $50 for more than 190 channels, including satellite radio channels, pay-per- view service, and streaming video service. Cable TV providers have increased their rates by 40% since 1998, while Dish Network and DirecTV have increased their rates by only 8% within that time. Equipment Cable companies give you a cable box when you subscribe to their service, and they charge $3 to $5 for every extra box you need in your home. Dish Network and DirecTV give you a satellite dish and receivers, and there's no extra charge to have satellite TV in up to 6 rooms of you home. Digital Video Recorders With a digital video recorder, or DVR, you can record your favorite shows with the push of a button. You can also fast forward, pause, and rewind live TV shows. The average cable TV DVR allows you to record 2 shows at one time, and can store up to 100 hours of programming. If 3 of your favorite shows come on at the same time you'll only be able to record 2 of them and you'll have to miss the third show. With satellite TV you can record up to 6 TV shows at once, or 5 shows while watching another show, so you won't miss any of your favorite shows. And you can store up to 2,000 hours of video recordings. Installation Dish Network and DirecTV will install all the necessary TV equipment for free, as will most cable companies. However, there are some cable companies who charge a setup fee. Dependability Satellite TV blackouts average about 1% a year, while cable TV blackouts average 3% to 5% a year. Ratings J.D. Power and the American Customer Satisfaction Index have ranked Dish Network and DirecTV higher in customer satisfaction than all the cable TV companies for the last 10 years. Customer Support Most cable TV company's support is limited to working hours on weekdays, while satellite TV providers offer 24/7 support through their toll free and online customer care services. The Bottom Line When it comes to price, number of channels, reliability, DVR quality, and customer service, satellite TV service beats cable TV service hands down.
