DISH America's Top 250 Package

The Movie Lover's dream

With over 290 channels and a whole lot more movie and entertainment options than Top 200, America's Top 250 is a very popular option for movie, sports and documentary lovers alike. During the 24-month promotional period, you'll pay only $10 more than Top 200 for this plan ($99.99), so there's quite a bit of value here vs cost. Year three and thereafter, the regular price of $104.99 kicks in, still a solid value compared to other providers, and light-years better than cable.

For 24 months after rebate
Regular: $104.99
Includes...
  • Over 290 Channels
  • Free Local Channels (nearly 99% of the US)
  • Free 4 room installation
  • Free movie channels (see bottom of page for latest deal)
  • SiriusXM Music channels
  • Free Hopper Whole-home DVR
  • 15 additional movie channels (including ENCORE pack)

America's Top 250 is DISH's first fully-featured movie plan. In addition to everything you get with Top 200, you'll get the entire suite of Encore channels (Encore Drama, Love, Suspense, Westerns, Action and more), Hallmark Movie Channel, Movie Channel West and more. Golf lovers will appreciate the fact this is the first package to include the Golf Channel. It's also the first to include the Tennis Channel, NBC Sports Network (previously Versus and Outdoor Life Network), the Cooking Channel, Bravo, CNBC World and various other favorites. Check out the entire list of new channnels in the table below. One of my favorites is the Do it Yourself (DIY) Network -- really hits home with weekend warriors. It's a renovated (pun intended :) version of old-school staples like "This Old House" and other PBS classics. If you're dangerous with a miter saw and nail gun, you'll be hooked on this channel in no time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I get America's Top 250 instead of Top 200?

In a word, movies. It gets you 17 more movie channels compared to AT200 (Turner Classic, The Movie Channel, STARZ, etc). You'll also get Bloomberg TV, Destination America and pleny of others.

If I get AT 250 with 3 TVs, which receiver will I get (regular Hopper or Hopper Duo)?

For homes with 3 or more TVs, you'll get the regular Hopper DVR which has a 2 TB drive and up to 16 tuners. The monthly DVR fee for the full-fledged Hopper is $10/mo. For installs of 2 or less TVs, you'll get the Hopper Duo (which has a smaller hard drive and two tuners). The monthly DVR fee there is half as much, at $5/mo.

Will my bill increase in the 2nd year?

Nope. Being a 2 year, price-locked contract, your cost for America's Top 250 will remain at $99.99/mo for 24 months. After the 2 years, the monthly price goes up to $119.99. If that's a bit outside your budget, you can downgrade at any time (no additional fee).

Exactly how may channels are on America's Top 250?

Even though its had "250" in its name for years, as with most of DISH's plans, there are actually signficantly more channels. With a total of 290 channels, most of the extra channels are music-only, with the rest add-ons over the years. It's rare for a channel to get cancelled (by their studio) and not get replaced by a new one (or two). The end result is a gradual increase in total channels, especially with the larger plans, like this one.
