Where I lived for almost 15 yrs all we ever had was dog #@%@ cable. My mom always had dish and using the hopper was so easy and NEVER ran out of space. Soon after i moved the first thing I did was get DISH on my own. 2 mths in and couldnt be happier.

I've switched from Direct tv to dish plenty of times after moving and this last time, am gonna stay with dish no matter what. Yea getting the new customer deals are cool switching but I end up missing my dish and hopper setup.

Not going anywhere for a while!

Dish is pretty good overall but i hate seeing all these discounts for new signups when current subscribers dont' get squat. Dish -- reward your long time customers!!

don't usually write reviews but wanted to extend my thanks to Amy S. for her help with getting my service setup. it's my first time with dish and not only did a tough installation go smoothly but they promptly delivered on the signup gift of the polk soundbar too (my hubby Love it). I'm still learning the program guide but already like most of the hopper features. hopefully the rest of our time with DISH goes just as well.

With DISH tv our receiver freezers then resets frequently while watching TV.In the morning I would say at least 4 times. We phoned the company around the holidays and were told that we had too many lights in use. yea right..Well , now there are no extra lights in use and we were sent a new receiver.It was fine for a few weeks now we are back to square one. I would not recommend DISH tv to anyone. To many unexplained interruptions that are just brushed off as being our fault.Direc tv is better

The ONLY reason you should ever have Directv is if you want the NFL Sunday Ticket. That's it. That is the only thing advantage that Directv has over Dish. I was a long time (5 years) customer of Directv. In September 2016 I had a new roof put on my house and needed a simple realignment of the dish after the work was completed. Directv told me when I called on September 21st that they couldn't have a tech there until October 11th!!! Are you kidding me? Three frickin weeks to get a tech out

I test drove the hopper receivers at a buddys house and was sold. Switched to dish a couple months later and I'm VERY satisfied. My wife's favorite feature? Being able to skip commercials w/ autohop.

I ordered dish network to save money after we moved. None of us watch alot of tv so we got the cheapest plan I could find dish family. so far it's working for us I just wish there were more spanish channels. We may have to buy an addon pack soon.

We moved into our new house two months ago and had to decide b/n dish and directv and for us -- being on a budget and not watching too much tv anyhow -- it all came down to price.

When we called, our DISH rep was VERY helpful and offered us the DISH family deal. Very happy so far (fingers crossed Smiley

I've had Dish at my house and on my mobile since '09. Easy company to work with and I can't remember more than a couple times when the service went out.
