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.

August 8th, 2011

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.

The fact is, DIRECTV can’t compete with DISH Network’s everyday low prices.

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?

Call 866-912-4774 today and learn about DISH Network’s cutting edge HD Duo DVR technology, and get the best prices for the best selection in satellite!

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.

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.

How to Program Your DISH Network Remote to a Device With No Code

May 26th, 2011

DISH Network remotes are designed to not only control your DISH Network receiver but also most other devices in your home theater system. Being able to use one remote to control your entire entertainment center simplifies and enhances your viewing. DISH Network works hard to maintain an accurate and comprehensive remote code database, but sometimes the codes provided do not work for your device or there are no current codes available. In this instance you can perform a power scan.

A power scan scans through all of the remote codes from 000-999 while sending out a signal to power off, you’ll know when you’ve found the code that works with your device when it turns off.

1. Prepare your device and remote for the power scan.

Make sure the device you are programming your DISH Network remote to control is powered on and you are standing within 10-feet of it and have the remote pointed directly at it with no obstructions in between – including any glass entertainment center doors or other seemingly “see through” objects.

2. Press and hold the mode button.

At the top of your DISH Network remote there are four clear buttons, these are the mode buttons that are used to select which device you’d like your remote to control.

TV: When in this mode your remote will control your television, such as volume functions and changing the channels or inputs on your television. When your remote is programmed to your TV, you do not need to be in TV mode to control your volume, this can be done from SAT mode. Your remote should usually be in SAT mode for normal viewing functions.
VCR/DVD: This button is used to be programmed to your VCR or DVD player so you can control the power, and with DISH Network remotes that control DVR receivers you can control the play, pause, stop, rewind and other VCR/DVD functions.
AUX: Auxillary mode is used to program your remote to additional electronic devices in your home theater system, such as an additional VCR/DVD players or stereo equipment.

Press and hold the mode button you’d like to program for approximately 10 seconds and all of the mode buttons will light up.

Release the mode button and the button you are programming will begin to blink.

3. Press and release the big red power button.

While the desired mode button is blinking please press and release the big red power button (not the smaller “TV” power button if present). Once released your desire mode button should stop blinking and become steady.

4. Begin pressing the up-button.

While the desired mode button is lit steady you can begin pressing the up-button. The up-button us the button just above the “Select” button, as shown in the image below. You want to make sure when you press the up-button the desired mode button is turning off, not on, to make sure the remote is performing the power scan.

Continue to press the up-button about once every two seconds. This process may take several minutes.

5. Device powers off.

Once you’ve found a code the device will respond to you’ll know as the device will power off. As soon as this happens press the POUND (#) button to program that code to the mode button.

After you press the POUND (#) button the mode button will blink rapidly and then go out.

Test the remote functions now, can you turn the device back on and perform other controls?

If you are unable to locate a code for your device we apologize. Unfortunately electronic devices vary widely and so it is impossible to gaurantee one remote will work with every single one.
