Dish Network Hardware Shows Commitment to Excellence

By: Julia Hall

Dish Network is widely known as the source for superior television programming. This is true for a number of reasons including a wide variety of programming packages to choose from, the ability to access hundreds of channels, the ability to add channels onto existing programming packages, user friendly technology, and perhaps most importantly very competitive subscription rates.

What many people don't associate with Dish Network though is its ability to provide its subscribers with a variety of satellite receiver equipment. Having the right satellite receiver equipment for your individual needs can make a big difference in how you watch TV. Dish Network understands this and will listen to your needs and provide you with the piece of equipment that best meets the.

If your needs are fairly basic, you'll receive the Dish 301 which is the basic satellite receiver model. The Dish 301 is robustly built and will handle hundreds of channels or the smallest programming package that Dish Network has. It features plenty of user friendly software like the Dish Interactive Electronic Program Guide that's the central part of the Dish Network experience on any satellite receiver model. It also features Parental Control Locks and a variety of other smaller software perks that will help you to get the most out of your Dish Network subscription.

If you want a fairly basic satellite TV system, but want to have two TV's hooked up to it, Dish Network will provide you with the Dish 322. The Dish 322 has an extra satellite tuner which means that it can display two channels at the same time on two separate TV's. The result is that two people will be able to watch different programming on two separate TV's at the same time and change channels at will without effecting what the other is watching. With the Dish 322, it's just like having a second satellite receiver box, but without the extra space taken up. This model even comes with a second remote control to go with the second TV that can send a signal through a wall.

Digital video recording is a feature that can give you a lot more control over how you watch TV and it's built in to some Dish Network receivers. The Dish Player-DVR 625 is the basic example of this type of satellite receiver. The Dish Player-DVR 625 can be programmed to record up to two satellite TV programs of your choice at the same time off of different channels. Up to one hundred hours of these programs are stored on a built in hard drive and can be accessed whenever you want to watch them. This makes digital video recording a great feature for anyone who loves TV, but has a lot of real world obligations that keep them from watching their favorite TV shows when they come on. A digital video recorder is so easy to program and use that you may record all of your programming before watching it. Especially when you see all of the time that you can save by fast forwarding through commercials. If you choose to watch TV live, the digital video recorder will also record whatever you're watching so that you can pause and rewind it for instant replays.

All of these features on its satellite receivers show that Dish Network is focused on providing the best television experience possible for its subscribers.
