Satellite TV Comparison

If you have come here trying to decide whether to get DIRECTV or DISH Network, let me assure you right off the bat, you are in the right place. We’ve gone to great lengths to give you everything you need to make an educated decision about satellite TV.

Unbiased Comparisons

This site is 100% unbiased! That’s very rare on the internet today, but it’s true about this site. We get commissions for either service you choose, so there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be objective. These two companies are fierce competitors and they would not tolerate any biased spin in our content. If cable TV turns out to be a better deal for you, then by all means stick with cable. We just want to help you get the deal that is the best for you. Actually, we want this site to be a research tool for you and we purposefully left out the marketing hype and fluff. So, tell your friends about this unique service.

Editors Note: Get the channels you want for the lowest possible by using the comparison charts located on the right side of this page. If you don’t know where to start, you should probably start with the Main Channel Comparison chart.

DIRECTV vs. DISH Network

Choosing between these two services is really tough, because of all their similarities. However, there are a few key differences. We’ve made it easy for you by creating comparison charts. You will find these comparison charts located on the right in the sidebar.

The best place to start is with the main channel comparison chart, because channels are going to be the biggest deciding factor for most people. There are several other charts that will help as well, but the point is for you to use these charts to find your favorite channels for the lowest possible price.

Cable vs. Satellite

Comparing cable and satellite is like comparing a Fuji apple to a Granny Smith. They are both TV services, but they are very different. Satellite is pretty much nationwide and cable is broken apart into dozens of companies.

I’m not going to sit here and badmouth cable. It is what it is! Different areas will give you different results with cable. You probably already know how your cable company is, so I will let your own experience with cable be the measuring stick here.

One tip I will leave you with is that switching to satellite will get you some brand new state of the art equipment. Usually, this new equipment only costs you a two year agreement.

Get The Right Satellite Retailer!

These days you are bombarded with advertisements for satellite and cable! How do you know who will give you the best service? I’m not going to comment on all these other places that just happen to sell DISH Network or DIRECTV. I’m going to just say that we are very picky about satellite TV retailers. We only recommend places that just sell and install satellite. We have to be picky, because we have to trust who is going to be coming to your house to install it. I’ll just say I absolutely trust the companies I recommend on this site!
