The Number One Factor When Buying Entertainment Equipment

By: Archie Harris

When your looking for satellite tv hardware and components, you need to ask yourself what will happen when that equipment fails. Nothing is more frustrating then coming home to catch your favorite shows and you hit the power button and - nothing. I've looked at the both Dish Network and DirecTV's customer service plans and after much review I present the company with the best service and programming plans. J.D. Power & Associates have given Dish Network the highest rating in Customer Service among all of its competition in Cable and Satellite TV providers. This news is not good for the competition considering Dish Network is gaining more customers every day through their excellent reputation and enticing deals.

A Lot of Programming for Your Dollar

Dish Network is grabbing new customers through the low prices being offered for the highest in quality television entertainment. At the time this article was published in early 2007, new customers signing up were saving around $31 a month over digital Cable service. DishNetwork's basic Satellite TV package starts at only $19.99 a month and gives you over 100 channels. Plus, you get 3 free months of either a Showtime, HBO, Cinemax, or Starz Movie Pack. The Cinemax Movie Pack is 5 movie channels, the Starz and HBO Movie Packs offer 8 movie channels each, and the Showtime Pack gives you 10 movie channels. You get to choose which one you want and you have it three months for free. However, this isn't the only free offer for new customers.

Free Satellite TV Equipment, Installation, and Warranty

There are quite a few free offers going out to new DishNetwork subscribers. First off, all the necessary Satelite TV equipment is provided to you, so there is no equipment to buy. This equipment is installed for free by professional technicians to ensure you are up are running correctly. Plus, this equipment comes with a Lifetime Warranty and you get a free Home Protection Plan. You can also choose a free Four Room System meaning you can watch four different shows in four different rooms of your house at the same time. No more fighting over the remote control!

Free Equipment Upgrades

By becoming a new subscriber to DishNetwork's Satelite Television services, you are given a free Equipment Upgrade of either a DVR or HD receiver. DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder and its technology is making VCRs and videotapes obsolete. DVR receivers allow you to digitally record and store up to 100 hours of your favorite TV shows and sporting events. You can even record two shows at once and skip over the commercials when you get around to watching them. Mountain high stacks of videotapes are now a thing of the past. Not only do DVRs record and store your shows, but they also can pause and rewind live Television. If something was said or happened that you want to watch again, then just pause the program, rewind, and watch that part again. You then have the choice of continuing to watch the program from that point or skip ahead to where it is playing in real time.

HD stands for High Definition, and these receivers are designed to take in the incredible image and sound qualities of a High Definition Television and Digital Sound System. HD Televisions are becoming less expensive each year as more and more people buy them. It won't be long before they are the only type of new television available. For those that want the capabilities of both the DVR and HD Satelite TV receivers then choose the HD DVR Combo Receiver. DishNetwork is the first in the industry to offer this latest technology in Satelite Television.

In the end, if your looking for satellite equipment and you just can't decide which company to go with, I suggest Dish Network. They have the best support system to back you up when things go wrong. Usually at no cost to you. But don't take my word for it, research Dish Network yourself and see if you come to the same conclusion. Drop me a line and let me know if you agree or disagree.
