The lowest-priced package in the satellite TV industry, the Smart Pack plan (formerly DishFAMILY) lets just about anyone try out DISH with very little risk. Folks looking to flee from cable often pick this DISH package first, then decide if they need to upgrade and get more channels. During your promotional year, this plan is just $19.99/month; thereafter, it increases to $24.99/month, still more than 50% off comparable cable packages. Keep in mind this is the only DISH package that doesn't include any HD channels so if you're set on high def, you may want to look at the next package (Top 120).

It would've been easy for DISH to skimp on channels with this package but they actually did a solid job of including favorites such as Animal Planet, Cooking Channel, Discovery Kids, Food Network, Outdoor Channel and much more. Surprisingly, there's also a nice mix of education channels: Discovery Kids, Dish Earth, NASA, etc. Just as with all their other packages, you'll also get free local channels, a free install and an HD DVR upgrade, all with no hidden fees. All told, if you're on a budget or your household just doesn't watch a lot of TV, Smart Pack makes for an excellent option.
Below is the full list of channels you'll get:
