DIRECTV TV vs. DISH Network Channels, Promotions and Prices
Here at InternetLion.com we’re constantly publishing articles comparing DIRECTV® TV vs. DISH Network® channels, promotions and prices. But perhaps you didn’t catch any of our other DIRECTV TV vs. DISH Network channels, promotions and price comparisons articles yet. So, we figured, what would it hurt to do another article in this vein, this time focusing on topics like “DIRECTV TV vs. DISH Network channels,” “DISH Network promotion,” “DIRECTV TV prices,” “DIRECTV promotion,” “DIRECTV compare prices” and “DISH Network channel comparison.”
And yet, the problem is that a full comparison of DIRECTV TV vs. DISH Network channels, promotions and prices can get mighty long. Heck, we could spend a whole article comparing every DISH Network promotion to every DIRECTV promotion and still have enough to fill up several DIRECTV vs. DISH Network channel comparisons. So, rather than try to pack it all into one small article, we decided that this time we’d simply give an overview of these topic and direct you to articles we’ve already published on them.
DISH Network Promotions vs. DIRECTV Promotions
Although at first glance some DIRECTV TV prices might seem as low as the prices for some DISH Network deals, many of DIRECTV’s advertised prices are misleading. For instance, a DIRECTV Choice™ package can cost $29.99 per month, but this low price only includes single-TV, SD, standard-receiver service. To get HD, DVR or multi-set services DIRECTV Choice subscribers have to pay extra monthly fees that are typically noted in a font smaller than that big, marquis $29.99 DIRECTV flashes around.
With DISH Network promotions, in contrast, you never have to pay an extra fee for HD or whole-home services regardless of which package you select. Take DISH Network’s America’s Top 120 package for instance. It, like a Choice package, costs new, qualified subscribers $29.99 per month for the first year, with 24-Mo. Agreement. But, under the current DISH Network promotion, HD is included Free For Life (with 24-Mo. Agreement and AutoPay with Paperless Billing). Plus, customers can get up to 3 free HD receivers including an upgrade to one HD DVR (a $6/mo. DVR fee applies), and installation in up to six rooms are always gratis with this package.
DISH Network vs. DIRECTV TV Prices
When DIRECTV compares DIRECTV TV prices with DISH Network it tends to focus strictly on how it seemingly offers more channels than DISH Network for the same price. Then again, this is according to DIRECTV. Compare prices as we’ve noted above, and it’s quite clear that DIRECTV isn’t actually offering all the channels it claims for the DIRECTV TV prices it publishes in enormous fonts. And, DISH Network is the only provider that is currently offering 5 different channel packages for under $50 per month! That means more affordable choices for you…

And, when it comes to DIRECTV TV vs. DISH Network channels in HD, DISH Network is the clear leader. A DIRECTV vs. DISH Network channel comparison shows that DISH Network offers over 200 HD channels whereas DIRECTV only offers over 160 HD channels.
Plus, DISH Network is the only provider that offers Free HD for Life (with 24-Mo. Agreement and AutoPay with Paperless Biling) for ALL of it’s channel package options, even the starter America’s Top 120 package. DIRECTV, on the other hand, does not offer HD Free for Life with their starter package, the Choice package.
DISH Network is also the only satellite TV provider that offers all-HD packages starting at only $24,99 per month (DISH Network promotion pricing for 12 months with 24 month Agreement)! And, DISH Network is currently offering the all-HD premium DISH Platinum HD channel package free for 3 months to new subscribers (with 24-Mo. Agreement and AutoPay with Paperless Billing). That means 22 more channels of premium HD programming to try...
