DirecTV Vs. Dish Network

DirecTV Vs. Dish Network
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Jay_Carmichael]Jay Carmichael

In the North American world of satellite TV, there are only two major players in the high tech arena of Satellite TV. DirecTV and Dish Network. This revelation begs the following question, DirecTV vs. Dish Network, which is right for me? Read the following article with your pen in hand. Use the following information to discover which service will best suit your needs.

Both DirecTV and Dish Network are very similar with great products and top notch customer service but there are several notable differences that should be mentioned. First is the pricing structure. Dish network is set up to be a little cheaper to enter while DirecTV is designed to offer more choice. Direct TV has been around longer while boasting a larger user base than Dish Network. DirecTV does also offer some exclusive programming that dish network can not offer such as the NFL Sunday Ticket package, TV One, Fine Living, Fox Reality, and PBS Kids. The NFL Sunday Ticket Package offers a great view of just about every NFL football game in the season, however, Dish network does a good job at hitting the more common channels for a decent price.

Now, let us get to what this is really about, bring on the channels!

Dish Network Packages

Americas top 60: 60 Chan / $26.99 month / $31.99 with local

America's Top 60 Plus: 90+ Chan / $36.99 with locals

Americas top 120 : 120+ Chan / 37.99 / 42.99 with locals

Americas top 180 : 180+ Chan / $47.99 / $52.99 with locals

America's "Everything" Pak : 230+ Chan / 81.99 / 86.99 with locals

Direct TV

Total Choice: 135 Chan / 41.99 with locals

Total Choice Plus: 155+ Chan / 45.99 with locals

Total Choice Premier: 215+ Chan / 93.99 with locals

As you see, Dish Network gives an overall cheaper entry product while DirecTV offers more channels, but which is a better deal? In order to answer this question, I will take both service's entry level product and divide the price by the number of channels offered to see what I call "the more channels per dollar number". To make this comparison more accurate, I am using the price that includes local channels. This is because Direct TV offers free local channels in all of its Total Choice packages.

Dish network’s entry level package with local channels is $31.99 for over 60 channels which is .53 cents a channel per month. DirecTV offers 135 channels at $41.99 which comes in at .31 cents per channel per month. So my interpretation of the numbers amounts to the following. If price is your biggest concern, and you are happy with the basic lineup, go with Dish Network. If you want a lot of channels with the best bang for your buck, you can’t go wrong with DirecTV.
