Compare the Latest Satellite TV Specials

At any given time, DIRECTV and DISH run competing specials in an attempt to catch your eye and win your business. There's plenty of carefully worded advertising in play, so it's important to compare apples to apples. Since both providers typically release new offers every couple months, it's also a hassle to track down the latest... that's where we can help. We closely monitor the specials and will be updating this page as new ones get pushed live. View the latest comparison below.

Note: For each category, a checkmark denotes an advantage for that provider. "Customer Rating" is an average of the visitor feedback we've received (and from polls run on this site). "Overall Score" is an aggregate, weighted value based on an average subscriber's needs.
