Block Island Residents Love DISH Cable

Block Island has had an Interesting past, beginning of course with the native tribes that had always occupied the area like the Pequots, Mohegans, Niantics, and the Narragansetts. However there are records—extending as far back as 1524—of European explorers that sighted the Island on voyages and tried to lay claim to the area, at least by name. But it wasn't until 1614 when Dutch explorer Adrian Block would chart the island and name it, modestly, after himself.

Today, Block Island with its coextensive township of New Shoreham is a popular summer destination. Locals and visitors love the island for its beautiful beaches which cover over 17 miles of the coast line. By far the most popular event on the island is their 4th of July celebration, where everyone is encouraged to enter their artistic floats into a friendly competition. Sometimes the island population can triple during this spectacular event. Island cuisine is still a big tradition in this town where you can get fresh seafood from local restaurants like Finn's, or even purchase your own lobsters fresh off the boat. And on those warm summer nights, there is no shortage of great bars across the island like Yellow Kittens, Captain Nick's, and Club Soda Inc.

Sure the fanfare is a welcomed celebration, but island life is really about getting away from it all. So if you ever need to take a break from the summer festivities, don't forget that DISH TV offers a number of movie packages and on demand services across Block Island. You can also take advantage of DISH Anywhere, which allows you to stream TV anywhere you have an internet connection. So, call the friends, get the family together, head out into the water on your boat, and have a relaxing evening watching TV on the waves.
