If you are at all under the impression that you have to buy even one tiny piece of hardware to start to receive satellite TV programming from either of the two leaders in TV programming, you couldn't be more mistaken. DirecTV and Dish Network both give you a complete satellite system when you join either one of their families of TV viewers.
You also pay nothing for installation because this also is done free of charge. It's always a clean professional job because both DirecTV and Dish Network use their own in house teams of installation experts to do all the work on your home or business. Both of them also provide free installation in up to four rooms in your home or business and they supply virtually all of the hardware that is needed for the job.
If you want to have satellite service on several TVs, that's no problem either with these to industry leaders, because both of them will give you all the receivers that you need to connect up to four separate TVs and still at no cost to you. Both of these giants of the industry are running neck and neck in their contest to see who can provide the most service to their customers and it doesn't look like anything is going to change soon in this area.
Both DirecTV and Dish Network have received high rankings for their levels of overall customer satisfaction from J.D. Power and associates for the last five years in row and they both also have toll free twenty-four hour a day customer service numbers that you can call if you ever need to speak with a customer service representative.
They do differ in the kind of programming that they specialize in however. Dish Network is the all time leader in movie programming and they carry virtually every premium movie channel that is available. Starz Superpak, Cinimax, HBO, Turner Classics and the list just goes on and on.
Dish network is also the home of Mobile Dish, the revolutionary new technology in satellite service for recreational vehicles that allows users to access one-hundred channels of greet programming while they are traveling down the highway. It has done away with the standard satellite dish on RVs and replaced it with new, state of the art low profile receptive antenna that looks great on top of an RV.
DirecTV is the all time leader in sports programming and no other TV programming service has ever provided more premium sports viewing choices to their viewers in the history of television. They have a full twenty-five channels of sports for their viewing family to select from and they even have some channels that you can only get from them.They are NFL Sunday Ticket and NCAA Mega March madness and they can be added to any of DirecTV's programming packages. When you are ready to come up to the higher level of service and programming that satellite service provides, take a good look at what these two leading competitors in the programming industry have to offer and then decide which one is best for you.
