Who doesn’t want a great value for your money? When you start to compare satellite TV providers and packages, you’ll learn that DISH has committed to freezing everyday prices on English language packages in 2012. On the other hand, DIRECTV has raised its rates by an average of 4.9%*. Meanwhile, DISH prices on English language packages have remained the same. DIRECTV even raised the price of their DVR fee**. DISH also has the most advanced technology in the industry with the Hopper.
Only DISH brings you Blockbuster @Home, which gives you access to over 100,000 movies, TV shows and games by mail and over 25,000 titles available for streaming on dishonline.com. DISH’s main priority is making your television-viewing selection as large as possible.
According to DIRECTV, it removed 16 channels and raised the price of Choice XTRA, one of its most popular and reasonably priced programming packages. When it comes to affordable packages, DISH is the clear choice as it offers five packages with everyday prices under $50—DIRECTV only has one! DISH also offers the most HD channels nationwide—over 200! And, if necessary, you can get TV installed in up to six rooms free with DISH. With prices starting at just $19.99 a month, there’s no better value than DISH. Only DISH offers TV Everywhereä technology, providing you the ability to watch live and recorded TV on any compatible mobile device anywhere you have 3G, 4G or wireless internet while DIRECTV only offers live TV inside the home.
When contemplating DISH v. DIRECTV, the sensible choice is the one that saves you money and offers you more value—DISH TV.
