What’s So Great About Dish Network?

April 16th, 2012

You may be wondering what is the difference between Dish Network and other satellite companies or even cable TV. Aren’t they all the same?

There are several things that set Dish Network apart from their competitors. First, they offer innovative products at a reasonable price. They have a whole home DVR system in the Hopper, TV Everywhere that allows you to watch your favorite programs regardless of where you are, and Google TV that lets you enjoy the internet on your television. While each of these products may cost more than basic satellite programming, Dish Network remains competitive with other companies that are offering similar services.

Another thing that Dish Network offers is more movies. They have Blockbuster @Home that lets you choose between getting movies in the mail, online, On Demand, and 20 movie channels that include Starz Cinema. You will never run out of movies to watch and you can watch them first.

Superior customer service is another reason Dish Network is so popular. They are one of the only entertainment providers that has 24 hour customer service 7 days a week. You can talk to someone over the phone or online even in the middle of the night.

Prices are another reason Dish Network stays on top. They offer the lowest cost for their packages and didn’t raise their prices last year when other companies did.

Dish Network offers advanced technology that is easy to use. While they seek to keep up with the trends in today’s technology, they also strive to create products that the average person can program without problem. What good is fancy gadgets if you can’t use them? Dish Network’s award winning DVRs are simple to set up and user friendly.

It’s easy to trust a family-owned business and that’s what Dish Network is. They were founded by the Ergens and a friend back in 1980 and they have kept the same values ever since. In a world of big corporations and conglomerates, it’s nice to have a company that is all about family.

You can choose any or all of the reasons above to believe in Dish Network. Great value, great entertainment, and great values make it the right choice for anyone.

Invite Your TV to the Party with The Tailgater

April 13th, 2012

Imagine sitting outdoors at a barbeque or a tailgate party watching the big game on TV. Never hear your kids complain about being bored on a camping trip again. Bring the TV along!

Tailgater allows you to watch all of your favorite shows from anywhere. While limited to the 48 contiguous states, you’re not limited to where you want to take it. Bring it along to the tailgating party in the parking lot, a backyard barbeque, a quiet stream in the country, or a warm sandy beach.

How It Works

The Tailgater has two components: a portable satellite antenna and the HD receiver. The antenna hooks up to the receiver that is powered by plugging into an AC outlet or with a converter into a DC power supply. It automatically finds the nearest satellite signal with no programming from you.


The equipment is weather-proof and comes with a security bracket to prevent theft. It works with both HD and SD programming. It’s lightweight, with the antenna weighing 10 pounds and the receiver weighing just 5 pounds.


You may wonder about the cost of owning one of these prize gadgets. One of the best benefits to you is that you don’t have to pay for it when you aren’t using it. If you are only going to use it during the summer months while you are camping, only pay for it during those months. You can deactivate it at any time and not be charged a penalty and then reactivate it by logging into your account and it will be ready for use when you need it.

Most people will not need to create a second account for their Tailgater. If you have Whole-Home HD DVR service, you will be required to get another account.

You can watch the same channels as you would if you were sitting in your living room. The main exception to this is the local channels. They will vary, depending on where you are. Some regional sports networks may also not be available.

Whether you want to use The Tailgater for family vacations or for watching at outdoor events, it is a convenient system to take everywhere with you. Never miss your favorite shows while on vacation and never sacrifice time in the great outdoors to catch the big game. With The Tailgater, you can have it all.
