DirecTV vs Dish Network - Price Wars!

As many people know, satellite TV is the wave of the future. It seems as though no matter where we go these days, it is very common to see a satellite dish on the side of at least a couple houses. We have gotten past the days of the large dishes that sat on lawns, and moved onto the smaller versions that are mounted on the sides of houses facing north.

There are two main competitors that provide satellite TV services. This is great news for the consumer because they are constantly fighting for your business; unlike cable who seemed to be on their own for a while, and started to increase fees and has terrible customer service (I speak from experience). This fighting has lead to many price wars, as well as offers of free satellite dishes, free satellite receivers, free installation, free movies, and much more. We are now able to get free equipment and installation at a very low monthly cost. It turns out that getting satellite television, which offers more channels, and better reception is cheaper than the old cable way of receiving TV.

As I mentioned earlier, there are two main competitors that provide satellite television. These competitors are DirecTV and Dish Network.

DirecTV has been around since 1994 and now has a clientelle of over 12 million. Known as the United States #1 satellite TV provider, DirecTV provides 225+ channels to select from, as well

as some sporting programs that are not offered by their competitor such as Mega March Madness and NFL Sunday Ticket. DirecTV provides services throughout the United States as well as Puerto Rico.

Dish Network is another popular satellite TV provider. With over 10 million customers that subscribe to their company. They are the second most popular satellite TV provider, second only to DirecTV. Dish Network came about in 1996 which has given DirecTV a bit of a head start, but definitely has not slowed them down in any way. Dish Network has been competing intensely with DirecTV, and offers a larger channel selection. For the past few years, these companies have constantly tried to out do one another with offers of free things, which benefits us, the consumer immensely.

Now is a great time to look into upgrading from your current television provider to a satellite TV provider!

I found a really great site that has great information about satellite TV. Check it out.
