Best Satellite Reviews Compare Satellite TV Providers

DISH Review

DISH (formerly known as DISH Network) is the fastest growing satellite TV provider, and is ranked number one in customer satisfaction over all the major cable companies by the American Consumer Satisfaction Index. DISH offers a number of program packages and has the most variety of the two U.S. satellite TV providers. They have the most channels, the most HD channels, the most streaming videos, and  the most advanced DVR in the industry – the Hopper. Here's our DISH review:

                     DISH TV Service

Here's what you get when you order DISH satellite TV service: Programming DISH has more than 330 satellite TV channels which include general interest channels, sports channels, special interest channels, international channels, music channels, and adult channels. They have the most HD channels, thousands of streaming videos, and the most pay-per-view movies. Program packages start at $49.99 for their America’s Top 120™ which has 190 channels, and go up to $79.99 for their America's Top 250™ which has 290 channels plus HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and DISH Movie Pack™. All America’s Top program packages include your local TV stations broadcast in HD. Also included in their packages are commercial-free Sirius XM satellite radio channels, pay-per-view movies and events, plus streaming TV shows and movies you can download to your TV or mobile devices. Equipment With DISH service you get a free state of the art satellite TV system that includes a satellite dish, a DVR/receiver, and universal remotes in up to 6 rooms of your home. Dish Network Hopper® Review DISH’s claim to fame is its Hopper DVR. The Hopper is an amazing piece of technology that lets you record 8 TV programs simultaneously (16 programs with the Hopper 3) and store up to 2,000 hours of SD programming. It even automatically records prime time shows and skips past commercials with the AutoHop feature. With the Hopper you can pause, fast forward, and rewind live TV. Want to grab a snack while you’re watching Dancing With The Stars? No problem. Just hit the “Pause” button on your remote. Want to zip through boring parts of the news? Press “Fast Forward.” Missed a touchdown during a football game? Press “Rewind.” The Hopper can connect to as many as 6 television sets with its mini receivers called Joeys. Their latest Hopper model includes Sling service which allows you to send live TV shows and DVR recordings to any of your mobile devices so you can watch them anywhere you go. The Tailgater The Tailgater is a lightweight (less than 10 pounds), portable satellite system that gives you access to DISH programming wherever you are. You can watch your favorite shows or sports events while tailgating in your favorite team's parking lot, while camping, at the beach, or at your favorite park. Installation Your system will be installed for free by a certified installer, and he or she will show you how to operate your new system and answer all of your questions. Installation time is usually within 24 hours from the time you purchase DISH service. Customer Service If you ever have a problem with your service, customer service is available 24/7 by phone, by email, and by Internet chat service. We've found DISH's customer service reps to be friendly and knowledgeable.

Dish Installation

DISH will install their satellite TV equipment usually within 24 hours from the you place an order.

Standard installation is free, and you can purchase custom installation if you have wall mounted TVs, a home theater, or wireless networks that require additional work.

Pros And Cons

Pros DISH offers the most channels and the biggest variety of programming. Their Hopper DVR is the most advanced DVR in the industry, and features 2,000 hours of program storage, the ability to record 8 shows at once (16 shows with the Hopper 3), and can even automatically skip commercials. They also have the most streaming videos and pay-per-view movies. Cons Unlike free, over-the-air TV you do have to pay for DISH TV service, and you will have to have a satellite dish installed at your home. If you only watch a couple of shows a week their service probably isn't for you. But if TV is your main form of entertainment and you don't mind having a small 20" dish on your roof or in your yard, then DISH TV will be well worth the money.          Aria Websites Inc. is an authorized retailer of DISH Network L.L.C.
