NHL Center Ice on DISH Network
It will be hockey season again before you know it and it’s time to lock in the early bird pricing on the NHL Center Ice package from DISH Network® for 24/7 ice hockey action.
You may notice that if you order NHL Center Ice from DISH Network the package itself costs the same as it would if you’d ordered it from DIRECTV®. The current early-bird pricing is 4 payments of $42.95.
And yet, stating that the price for NHL Center Ice from DISH Network is the same as it would be from DIRECTV is a little misleading. You see, other factors lower the cost of DISH Network’s NHL Center Ice package, making it more cost effective to order NHL Center Ice DISH Network. And probably the greatest factor contributing to the superior savings DISH Network’s NHL Center Ice package offers is how much cheaper DISH Network’s starter packages are than DIRECTV’s.
NHL Center Ice DISH Network: The NHL Center Ice Package
For example, for qualified new subscribers who sign a 24-month Agreement, with AutoPay and Paperless Billing, DISH Network’s America’s Top 120 package is priced at an introductory price of a mere $29.99 per month for both SD and HD lineups and includes Free HD for Life, a free HD DVR ($6/mo. service fee applies), free professional installation in up to six rooms, a six month waiver for DISH Network’s receiver service plan and absolutely no connection or startup cost. What’s more, the package also includes DISH Platinum™ and 4 premium movie channels (HBO™, Cinemax™, Showtime™ and Starz) services free for three months. And, DISH Network offers the most HD channels in the industry. All in all, DISH Network is offering over $700 in savings in the first year of service for new DISH Network customers!
In contrast, to get the same services offered with an America’s Top 120 package DIRECTV subscribers may pay up to $49.99 per month; that includes $29.99 per month for the Choice channel package and $20 extra for HD, DVR and whole-home service—perks included as standard, free parts of an America’s Top 120 package. And, because to receive NHL Center Ice from DISH Network or DIRECTV, subscribers must already have ordered one of the companies’ starter packs, the additional $20 ups the cost of DIRECTV’s NHL Center Ice package in general.
Of course, if a subscriber were adamant about not receiving whole-home, HD and DVR services from DIRECTV he might pay the same amount for his starter pack and NHL Center Ice package as his DISH Network-subscribing counterpart. But, then again, he also would only have the option of watching his hockey games on one, and only one, TV and would definitely not be able to watch the games he receives through his NHL Center Ice package in HD.
