Its Amazing That Anyone Still Subscribes to Cable

There are a lot of advantages that satellite TV has over cable TV and Dish Network takes advantage of all of them to deliver service that's far superior to what the typical cable TV company can do. There are many ways that this is true. The most obvious advantage that Dish Network has is its ability to offer a lot more channels than they typical cable TV provider. While there are a few cable TV companies that can offer as many as two hundred channels, the vast majority of them can only provide about ninety to one hundred channels. Dish Network beats out even the best cable TV providers and is far superior to the run of the mill cable TV providers with its ability to offer up to three hundred channels in a single programming package with additional channels added on and its total offering of over five hundred channels.

The fact that Dish Network can offer so many more channels also gives it a lot more flexibility to offer more of a variety of programming packages and additional channels to supplement each programming package. These options allow Dish Network subscribers to customize their own programming packages so that they only pay for the channels that they. Just to ensure this, Dish Network offers programming packages ranging in size form seventeen channels for Great Wall TV which supplies Chinese language programming all the way up to two hundred and seventy channels for the Platinum Level High Definition Television Entertainment Package. In between are a blend of several programming packages with fewer than one hundred channels for budget conscious subscribers, but most of the programming packages have over one hundred channels.

There are also a lot of more subtle advantages that Dish Network has over the cable TV industry. While most cable TV providers are still delivering their programming in the old analog signal format, all of Dish Network's programming is in digital television format. Digital TV has the advantage of being easy to cleanse of interference and without interference the picture can have the same crystal clarity as the image from a DVD. The same is true for sound, which is delivered with the same quality you'd get out of a compact disc. Along with digital TV, Dish Network provides interactive software that will make the television experience more enjoyable and relaxing. An interactive program listing will allow you to choose among all of the different channels that you have access to in order to find what you really want to watch. That's a good way to manage hundreds of channels without going insane.

Another advantage that Dish Network has over the cable TV industry is the fact that it has so many more subscribers. While most local cable TV companies have a few hundred or a few thousand subscribers, Dish Network has over eleven million subscribers. That means that Dish Network has a lot more of a subscriber base to share overhead costs, and because of that it can offer lower rates to each subscriber than any cable company and still have money to spare for upgrades. With all of these advantages that Dish Network has over cable, it's amazing that anyone still goes with cable TV.
