Switch from DIRECTV and choose from 6 packages with everyday prices that cost less than DIRECTV’s basic package. For the most-watched channels in America, you’ll pay less and get more with DISH Network.
DIRECTV claims to have the most advanced technology, but only DISH Network gives you TV Everywhere, and the ability to watch live TV and DVR recordings anywhere, anytime on your laptop, smartphone or tablet.
DIRECTV’s Whole-Home DVR is supposed to allow you to access your DVR from any TV in your home. In truth only ONE television can be used as a DVR, you cannot pause or rewind live TV on your other TVs. Some may be okay with only having one TV able to act as a DVR, as long as you can access the DVR recordings from all of your other TVs. Well only one receiver can access DIRECTV’s Whole-Home DVR at a time, meaning you can only watch recordings from one TV at a time. DIRECTV’s Whole-Home DVR requires a separate HD receiver for each television, that’s an additional $99 charge for each extra receiver.
DIRECTV says they offer free HD for life, but that only applies to their higher-level packages, which can cost up to $114.99/mo.
DIRECTV offers only half the programming choices that DISH Network delivers – that’s not much of a choice.
Why pay more for less?
