If you're considering the switch to digital satellite TV, Dish Network is the way to go. With a digital satellite TV service provider like Dish Network, you'll get digital quality TV, free installation and equipment, and affordable, consistent pricing.
How complicated is the switch to digital satellite TV and Dish Network? Some of the most common issues about satellite TV and Dish Network service are covered below.
Believe it or not, Dish Network set-up is easy. Dish installation is fast and free. The dish itself can be mounted close to a window, on a roof or terrace, or in a yard. The dish will need unobstructed access to the sky - a view free of branches and buildings -- and it will need to be pointed southward. Dish Network will set up the satellite and install equipment for free for customers in as many as four rooms at home.
A single satellite dish takes care of every TV in a viewer's home. Dish Network provides dual tuner receiver boxes; so that customers don't have to have a dish to go with each TV they have in the house.
Yes, apartment-dwellers can get satellite TV. And contrary to popular belief, Dish Network will set up a satellite for customers who rent their apartments. However, written permission from a customer's landlord is required. Permission must be shown to Dish Network prior to installation.
Satellite dishes are not as delicate as you think. Poor reception due to bad weather is rarely a problem with Dish Network. A rain- or snowstorm might result in a brief lapse in broadcasting - perhaps a few seconds' worth. The satellite signal is very powerful.
HDTV is part of the Dish Network package. In order to access HDTV through Dish Network, viewers must have one high definition television set. Dish Network will provide an HDTV receiver for high definition programming.
Tuning into international programming is super-easy with Dish Network. To take advantage of Dish Network's diverse range of international packages, subscribers must sign up for a basic package like Dish Latino or the Great Wall, and then buy an extra dish, called a super dish.
