Get More TV for Less with DISH

We are a TV family. Oh, sure we like other types of entertainment – I’m a big reader, we love music, etc., but for us TV is where it’s at. What we DON’T like is paying a lot for TV! Favorite shows don’t seem quite so awesome when you know you’re paying an arm and a leg just to keep the channels coming every month.

DISH Flex Pack – Lots of Channels. Little Price.

But TV doesn’t have to be expensive. You can get a LOT of channels without paying a lot with the DISH Flex Pack. I’ll get right down to the details. For a limited time, you can get 50+ channels for only $39.99 per month (plus taxes). That price also includes one channel pack of your choice like sports, kids, news, locals or more. You also have the option of adding on additional packs starting at $10/mo each. If you’re a new customer, this price is guaranteed for 2 years, you get HD Free for Life PLUS you get 3 months of Free Premium channels like Starz, Showtime, HBO and more. This deal ends 6/6!

What I think is a real deal is America’s Top 120+, which actually gives you over 190 channels starting at $54.99 per month. That includes favorites like USA, CMT, Disney Channel, ESPN, E! and lots more. You also get over 70 Sirius XM Channels and more. All of that for less than what it costs to take the family to a movie in the theater and buy concessions.


Netflix Integration

But that’s enough talking about deals. There are really cool techie reasons why DISH is pretty awesome. One that I LOVE is Netflix Integration. DISH is the FIRST major television provider in the U.S. to offer Netflix integration in its set-top box. What does that mean? No more switching inputs! I may just be lazy, but having to switch inputs just to watch Netflix can make me decide to just skip the whole thing.


DISH Anywhere

With DISH Anywhere, you have access to 100% of both your live AND your recorded entertainment anywhere you go – provided you have an internet or data connection of course. You can watch on your phone, laptop or tablet. The feature that I REALLY like is the ability to transfer DVR recordings in advance to stream without Wi-fi. That’s a big advancement from the “olden days” when we used to bring a sleeve of DVDs on vacation to watch on the laptop!


Hopper 3 DVR

I’m a DVR junkie!! Almost everything I watch on TV is via DVR. I also tend to hoard things in the DVR. My husband often complains that I have Hallmark Christmas movies recorded from 2 years ago that I still haven’t watched. (I will watch them next Christmas, seriously.) That’s why the Hopper 3 DVR is so awesome. It lets you watch and record 16 shows at once and offers 2,000 hours of DVR storage – yes, 2,000! It even has a multi-view mode, which lets you enjoy four channels at the same time. If you record that whole 2,000 hours, you might need to watch 4 at once just to get through them all.

DISH has lots more to offer than these four features I have highlighted, but I don’t want to overload you all at once! What you DO want to do is visit DISH to get all the details of how you can start watching more TV for less!

Right now, to sweeten the deal, DISH is offering new customers the choice between free TV mounting (use code MOUNT4753), a free Polk soundbar (use code DISHSOUND967), or free Bluetooth headphones (use code BTOFFER852). Offers expire July 30th.

  1. We’ve been thinking about switching to DISH. Several of our friends have it, and they love it.

  2. I need to look in to DISH. Our cable bill right now is obscenely high. It’s just awful.

  3. I have heard that Dish offers some pretty good options with more channels for your buck. I love that you shared this for those seeking to get TV but without the high cost of those “other” options. I will peek at Dish when our current contract is up with our current provider for TV.

  4. What a great sounding service DISH offer, it is good to see more competitively priced products coming out.

  5. robin rue says:

    We had DISH for a long time and were happy with it. It’s definitely an affordable option for families.

  6. This sounds like a great service! We would make good use out of all that DVR storage. We have so many shows we’re trying to watch at once!

  7. The Hopper 3 DVR sounds great! I used to be so bad about DVRing things and never getting around to watching them.

  8. This is great information! It is not offered in m building, but I will keep this in mind for when we move!

  9. shelly peterson says:

    I will have to check into this. It sounds like a great service.

  10. Hannah C says:

    I currently have DISH and it’s a great service. I love DISH!

  11. These are some really great deals from DISH. My husband and I haven’t had cable for years, but have been thinking of getting it back recently, i think we may have to look in to this.

  12. Julie Wood says:

    This sounds like a very good deal! I have always wondered about Dish TV and I can see that they have great specials!

  13. DISH sounds great. i’m not sure if its available where I am located but I will check it out and see. We are spending a lot on tv right now.

  14. I think it’s important that we consider options like this when it comes to how we want to watch TV! It sounds like they have awesome features that we’ll enjoy.

  15. I haven’t used Dish in a long time. However, I have family members who’ve had it for years and they love it.

  16. Dish has really been stepping up their game. I don’t watch enough TV to get it though.

  17. We had Dish a long time ago when we had cable. I was pretty happy with the service they provided.

  18. Our Family World says:

    I have a different cable service provider, but I am looking into other options too. Thanks for your review of Dish. It looks like they offer a lot and their monthly plan is market competitive. I am going to check them out too. Thanks!

  19. Annemarie LeBlanc says:

    I love that feature of “Dish Anywhere.” When I am out on long road trips, I need to have something to watch or read to keep me entertained. Same goes with my entire family. I will have to check on this.

  20. This service sounds incredible. We are actually thinking about switching and will have to look into this!

  21. I’m a current Dish customer, and you’ve reminded me that I should take a look at what we are paying for and what has to offer. They’ve added a lot of great services since we originally signed up–we still don’t have a DVR!
