Dish Network: Programming & Technology

By: Mitchell Crawford

There are two main factors that go hand in hand toward creating a great television watching experience. One is programming and the other is technology that maximizes convenience. Both work in tandem to deliver the best possible television experience. After all, even if you have access to thousands of channels of the best programming you can imagine, it would all be worthless if you couldn't see the picture or didn't have any way to keep track of what's on all of the channels. On the flip side, you could have the highest resolution and widest screen ever with a completely three dimensional image, but it wouldn't make any difference if there wasn't anything worth watching.

Fortunately Dish Network has struck a balance between programming and technology. It offers hundreds of channels, not thousands. And while it does have High Definition Television packages, it doesn't have anything in 3-D. Instead Dish Network takes the much more down to earth approach of making sure that each one of it's entertainment packages has a great balance of channels with a variety of subjects, so that no matter how large of an entertainment package you select, there will always be something great to watch.

On the technology side of things Dish Network takes measures to make the actual television picture as sharp as possible while providing software to help you keep track of the hundreds of channels you may have to chose from.

The great television picture comes from Dish Network's use of a digital signal to transmit all of it's programming. Digital television provides an ultra sharp picture because it's extremely easy to cleanse of interference. The same holds true for the sound too. Dish Network also provides it's Electronic Program Guide to all subscribers which is full of great features that help you figure out what you want to watch and when it's on.

On the programming side, each of Dish Network's entertainment package contains a great blend of educational programming, movies, news, sports, entertainment news, home shopping, music videos, comedy, cartoons, and much more. Larger packages give you more options, maybe a disproportionate number of movie channels, but for the most part you get the same great content in larger packages, just more choices of channels to watch it on.

Dish Network also allows you to customize it's entertainment packages by adding more channels. Additional channels available from Dish Network include sports programming like MLB Extra Innings, NHL On The Ice, NBA League Pass, as well as regional sports networks. SIRIUS satellite radio is a great choice for people who love great music and talk radio without the commercials. International programming is available in up to nineteen different languages to help you stay connected to other parts of the world.

Just like Dish Network offers additional programming, it also offers additional technology. One great option is Digital Video Recording which lets you record your favorite shows no matter when they're on. That way you can watch them when you want even if you're not awake or even at home when they're on. A Digital Video Recorder is easy to program with the help of the Electronic Program Guide and since all of the video is recorded on a hard disk, you don't need to find room for tons of video tapes. In all, the Digital Video Recorder is a huge improvement over the VCR.

Dish Network may not offer thousands of channels or 3-D television, but you can rest assured that until it doesFeature Articles, you'll always have access to the best programming and technology available. Switch to the best home entertainment today. Start now.
