Five upcoming shows on HBO you need to check out

August 14th, 2013


TV critics and straight-up TV junkies alike often can’t wait for the upcoming projects green-lighted by HBO. While many American viewers have developed addictions to shows such as Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, and True Blood, the end of 2013 into 2014 is bringing a series of several promising projects with a string of well-known actors, veteran writers, assisted by novels familiarized throughout the past decade. Some drama, some comedy – this is a list of future shows planned for HBO that have been green-lit for airing.

Remember that HBO is available on DISH Network free for three months when you order your package today.

True Detective

Starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, True Detective will span across seventeen years in the swampy depths of Lousiana as Harrelson and McConaughey star as two state detectives tracking down an elusive serial killer. The skeletal plot sounds simple enough, but with those involved with the project, this is sure to a strong crime drama that HBO would only be able to pull off.

Hello Ladies

The long-time associate of Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant is back with what is being hailed as a “cringe comedy”. Though it often seems that Gervais and Merchant are inseparable (an of course we can’t forget about Karl Pilkington), it sounds like Gervais has no association with Hello Ladies. The comedy will center on Merchant, who plays a British (of course) web programmer who has recently moved to Los Angeles with the expectation that the city is just as glamourous as has been portrayed. Looking for love turns out to be a miserable process, as the show follows his exploits around LA. Knowing the mind of Merchant at work, this has the potential to bring a new dynamic to the romantic comedy, if that’s what you want to call it.

Silicon Valley

Mike Judge (Office Space, Bevis and Butthead) is back with is sure to be Office Space on steroids. Not much has been released about Silicon Valley, but the description has gone like this: “…where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.” Shooting has already begun, but nothing is known about when this show is set to air. Knowing the creative force of Mike Judge, Silicon Valley could very well be hard to miss.

The Missionary

Fans of Breaking Bad on AMC won’t have to be quick to miss Walter White’s sidekick Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul. Paul is rumored to be the star of a show recently ordered by HBO called The Missionary. Paul is to play an executive for Coca-Cola in Berlin during the 1960s at the height of the Cold War. While handling big business, the executive also doubles up with the CIA to help citizens of the Eastern Bloc to escape Communist rule. Charles Randolph and Mark Wahlberg are behind the project, and both have had their share of experience with HBO.


Based off of a book by Karen Russell, Swamplania! will focus on the Bigtree family and their bizarre Florida tourist attraction that is infested with alligators. The book was highly regarded when it came out two years ago, and the plan to adapt it onto the screen came pretty quickly after. Nothing much is known about this adaptation, but plenty of people have been talking about it.

Learn About Your Rights to Satellite Service

December 24th, 2012

Occasionally, rental properties or homeowners associations (HOAs) tell our customers they’re “not allowed” to have a satellite antenna. This is not always the case.

In fact, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) created the Over-the-Air Reception Devices (OTARD) Rule to regulate and protect your choice of TV providers.

In most instances, you are allowed to have a DISH antenna provided you meet the following criteria:

  • The antenna is installed in an area that you have sole access to (such as a private balcony or deck).
  • The antenna’s placement does not extend into any common areas (such as walkways or gardens).

If you feel that you meet these minimum requirements or if you have questions regarding the OTARD Rule, contact the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (225-5322) or visit the FCC’s page about the OTARD Rule. The FCC can determine whether or not your right to choose a TV provider is being unlawfully denied and help you resolve the issue.

DISH and Qualcomm on the Forefront of LTE-Advanced

June 15th, 2012

LTE is the future of mobile service, and 4G-LTE is now a standard among mobile carriers and is set to become the first global standard for mobile phones. Even though LTE may seem like brand new service to you (didn’t it just become a buzz word a few weeks ago?) the tech sector is already moving on to LTE-Advanced, the soon to be new brand new mobile standard. DISH has been on top of the game and has already signed a deal with telecommunications giant Qualcomm to create LTE-Advanced chipsets for their future devices.

DISH is trying to convince the federal government to allow them to use 40MHZ chunk of satellite spectrum to launch a terrestrial LTE-Advanced network in the US. It’s likely to be passed, as the only thing that had stopped LightSquared, the company that tried to do the same thing before, was that their service caused interference with GPS navigation signals. DISH of course wouldn’t have this problem as they’d be using their own bandwidth that has been specifically set aside for the network’s use, no need to share with anyone else.

If the federal government does okay DISH’s plan they will be the first to launch a nationwide LTE-Advanced network and their equipment will be the first equipped with chips ready to take advantage of the blazing speed (up to 100mbs download). This is why DISH is the best in technology, they’re always at the front of the pack when it comes to technological revolutions.

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.
