DISH Network Dual Tuner Receivers
“DISH Network® dual tuner receivers,” “DISH Network dual receivers” or “DISH Network dual tuners”—call them what you want, the fact is DISH Network HD boxes are some of the best subscription TV devices on the market. Now, of course, if you’ve read any of Internet Lion’s other articles on DISH Network HD tuners you’re probably tired of us belaboring the point. But there is one facet of DISH Network HD boxes we haven’t covered yet, and in this article we intend to do so.
DISH Network Dual Tuner Receiver Deals
Perhaps you’ve already heard about the deal on DISH Network HD tuners DISH Network is currently running. But just in case you haven’t, first-time subscribers can currently get three free DISH Network HD tuners including an upgrade to one HD DVR (including DISH Network dual tuner receiver models), for a $6/mo. leasing fee with 24-Mo. Agreement, when they order one of the DISH Network deals featured on our site.
It’s a great deal on top of free connection, Free HD for Life and having access to some of the best subscription TV equipment ever made, with 24-Mo. Agreement with AutoPay and Paperless Billing. And, on top of that, subscribers to DISH Network’s most basic package, its “America’s Top 120,” will only spend about $360 per year for TV service—anywhere in the country!
You may be wondering what a DISH Network dual tuner receiver is, but let us explain. You see, the meaning of “dual” in the phrase “DISH Network dual receiver” means that DISH Network dual receivers can be connected to two TVs. Plus, many DISH Network dual receivers are HD-compatible DVRs. This means you can use the DVR in your living room to record a show on the dual-connected TV in your bedroom. Nor does having only one recorder prevent you from watching two separate shows, one on each TV. A DISH Network DuoDVR 722K, for instance, will give you these exact capabilities.
The way DISH Network deals with your only having one receiver is it gives you two remotes, one with an infrared transmitter and another with a high-frequency radio wave transmitter. These remotes are interchangeable too in that simply flipping the panel at their base allows you to change the type of signal they use. So, say you want to watch the same show on both TVs (when you’re walking through the house doing things but don’t want to stop a live football game): You can flip the base panel of your bedroom TV around at the start of the game and thereby set both TV to that channel.
DISH Network vs. DIRECTV Deals
So our advice here at InternetLion.com is to consider all these perks, plus the fact that the overall cost for, for instance, the most basic DISH Network package is half that of the comparable DIRECTV package over two years. Not to mention that, if you want HD and DVR service on multiple TVs with a DIRECTV subscription, you could be paying as much as $37 per month in addition to your monthly subscription fee.
Why you’d pay more for less is beyond us, but don’t let our advice discourage you from weighing the options yourself. As an official DISH Network retailer we encourage our readers to check out our DISH Network deals, then visit DIRECTV and read all their fine print. We’re sure in the end you’ll realize we really are telling you the whole truth and DIRECTV isn’t.
