DISH vs Comcast

June 28th, 2011

When comparing everyday prices, DISH Network has 6 packages under $60 per month. Comcast only gives you a choice of two packages under $60. Plus, in the past year, Comcast has already increased their prices twice in some markets. Hundreds of thousands of households across the country have seen their prices increase by as much as $6 a month, and that’s just for programming. Comparing package for package, DISH Network simply costs less:

Comcast would have you believe that by bundling phone, internet and television services you can save money, but you’d spend an of $130 a month for all three services and as much as $65.45 for television alone. DISH Network offers the lowest all-digital prices nationwide. Our prices start as low as $24.99/month for our base package, which means if you unbundle your Comcast television service, you can save as much as $40.46/month with DISH Network.

Call 1-866-912-4774 to unbundle and save money today!

DISH Network Free Professional Installation

June 24th, 2011

When you sign up for a DISH Network account you receive a free, professional installation from a friendly, extensively trained DISH Network technician.

What does the installation include?

A professional DISH Network technician will come to your home on the day you select – you can choose between morning hours (8am to 12pm) or afternoon hours (12pm to 5pm) – and install your whole home DISH Network system. This may include:

  • Hanging the DISH Network satellite dish. Even if you already have a satellite dish on your home a new one will always be hung as an existing dish may not be the correct type/size for the channels or features you ordered.
  • Running cabling through your walls or floors between the DISH Network satellite dish and the TVs you have selected to received DISH Network service.
  • If unable to hang a satellite dish on your home, the technician may mount it on a pole in an area with a clear line of sight to the southern sky. If a pole mount is necessary for your installation, the technician will need to “trench” the cable that runs from your satellite dish into your home, this means burying it at least six inches (6″). In order to do this the technician may need to call your local utility or phone company to ensure it is safe to dig in your yard, he may not be able to bury the cable the same day he installs your system.
  • “Peaking” your DISH Network satellite dish, a process in which the technician ensures the dish is receiving the best possible signal.
  • Ensuring that all of your receivers have satellite signal, audio and video and your remotes are programmed to your receivers and televisions.
  • Connecting receivers to your broadband internet connection or telephone connection if available.
    Showing you how to use your receiver, program guide and DVR functions if present.
  • Explaining which remotes belong in which rooms and affixing stickers to the back of them to help you keep track.

How long does this take?

The technician will arrive during the selected time frames – morning hours (8am to 12pm) or afternoon hours (12pm to 5pm) – and from there it can take between 2-4 hours to complete. Each installation is different, however, so it may the technician less or more time to have your system fully operational. The timeframe options apply only to the technicians arrival time and do not indicate when the installation will be completed.

What are Blackouts?

June 1st, 2011

Blackouts refer to times when sporting events are not available on a certain channel, in a certain region or from a certain broadcaster. DISH Network’s agreements with sports broadcasters require them to fulfill all blackouts.

Blackouts can be frustrating and confusing, so we’ll take some time and explain them. Often games that are blacked out on one channel are available on another.

National Blackouts

Local channels and Regional Sport Networks (RSNETs) within a team’s territory can purchase exclusive rights to a sporting event. Their viewing areas are determined by geographical location or ZIP code, and the games they purchase are not available for viewing outside of their coverage areas.

It is unlikely, but possible, that you could have a friend in the same town or even neighborhood who is able to view a nationally blacked out game that you are not. This is not something that can be fixed by going to another television provider. Everyone has to be abide by blackout restrictions. If you do not have access to the local channel or RSNET that has purchased the rights to the game, no other television provider can change that. Local channels and RSNET viewing areas are mandated by the FCC and federal law and trying to circumvent them is illegal.

Regional Blackouts

Regional blackouts tend to be a little easier to deal with as the games are available nationally. When national networks likes ESPN, FOX, TNT CBS, etc. purchase the rights to sporting events they are not available to regional channels unless they also purchase rights.

Pay-Per-View Season Ticket Blackouts

In an effort to protect the rights holder in the teams’ territories blackout restriction apply to all games offered on DISH Network Season Ticket events. TO view these sporting events you have to purchase the event.

ESPN Game Plan

The college football games available on ESPN Game Plan can be blacked out to other channels. Blackouts are determined on a per-game basis and the information on those games is available the week preceding the game.


Boxing events may be blacked out to the markets in which the event is taking place if the fight is not sold out. If the fight is sold out, a blackout will not take place.

You can use the “Where’s My Game?” tool to view blackouts and channels sporting events are on.
