I find your service enjoyable for the most part. I'm not thrilled about a couple of channels not being included in the package or that it is required to have a separate joey for every tv as I do still have some older tvs in my home but the customer service and installation tech was pretty awesome.

I've always been happy with the service and commitment that Dish has offered. I had some trouble with my debt and they had no problem in sending out a technician to help me. It was Sunday morning. They have been great

Candace Reviewed Dish Reviews

The controller and the user interfaces are friendlier and more responsive to typical commands (recording shows, amount of storage, layout of the TV Interface). Further the tech who showed up allowed us to not record the default (6+ hours of CBS, ABC, etc.) each day, which showed a sense of refining the customer experience and eliminating surprises. The technology allows for multi-room playback without an additional DVR, which is more convenient than Spectrum. It is a difficult decision to commit to two years in the event of growing stream offerings through the internet, and I don't like the idea that dish wants to piggy back off of another internet source for increased throughput. It seems a little cheap to do so. Despite these issues, I found the offerings of dish to be the best option at this time relative to its competitors.

We've only had two service for a couple of weeks but are pleased so far. Easy to operate and plenty of options to choose from on what to watch. I'm not a fan of The Primetime TV but so far that's my only complaint.

I moved to Dish because there was zero customer service with my other satellite company. Dish listened to my needs and had me up and running in no time. They really do have good customer service and when it comes to dealing with satellite TV you NEED good service. Thanks DISH!

My roomate had Dish in Ohio and I liked the usability so much I got my own in Florida when I moved. Everything is great now, the only advice I would add would be to have your CSR describe ALL of the packages rather than just the initial more common packages.

I’m in the middle of a state to state move. In one state I work with a dog rescue so there are emergency situations frequently. In the other is my family, caring for our brother as he is loosing his battle with cancer. I scheduled the installation then had to cancel. But your people were nice and they have helped me. I’m rescheduled for about a month out. I’m very happy not to have had to cancel.

Enjoying my Dish. Like the previews as to get a better idea of what plus packages I will consider. The tech that installed was friendly, informative, efficient, and patient. It was not an easy install but he went to task enthusiastic and explained what he was doing plus options. I suggest you make every effort to keep him. I'm still learning Dish but thanks to this point.

Great reception. I haven't had tv in 5 years so this is great. I am 82, the buttons on the remote are way to small especially the labeling. They should make a senior friendly remote for those that are older or have trouble seeing and manipulating the remote. We need an "Easy" remote.

The thing I like best about my dish line-up is because we get several channels that carry old show. as well as new ones. At the age of seventy two is is nice to watch the shows that were popular when I was young as well as my favorites now. Dish was very nice when installing our service. The young man that took care of our installation cleaned everything up and was very patient with my husband on where and how he wanted the dish placed. We were willing to sign a2 year contract for the price we were given. Thank you Dish.

Cheryl McMahan ,

Cheryl Reviewed Dish Reviews

When placing the order I was told I would get TV service and internet from AT&T because you worked with them directly. When the technician arrived he said I had to call AT&T directly so I am now waiting for that. Second, the tec just dropped the direct TV dish on the ground and left it there and I don’t know if he put your dish in the same holes or repaired the old holes so I have no leaks in the roof. Lack of communication!!!!

I initially switched to DISH because they were one of the only networks that offered the channel that broadcasts my favorite sports team, but now that I have DISH TV I’m so glad I did. My TV package is perfect for me, I’m love the fact that the entire process from customer service to the installation was seamless and every person was very knowledgeable and helpful; keep up the good work and you’ve got a customer for life

Ron Sense ,

Ron Reviewed Dish Reviews

Just got service at new cabin up north because was only system type that would work and old roof antenna system could not draw in local channels anymore. Confused by the different service agents that are all in the area that represent DISH. To bad they push agents to always upsell stuff instead of just provide Customer Service and then based agents performance on customer surveys. Will check out for other options when contract up because pretty expensive for the little I use it. To bad they can not just provide a service that offers local channels without all the extra junk for those of us that are not full time residents.

After years of DirecTV, and Sling TV, I decided to switch over to Dish. It was a coming-home experience as I used to have Dish years ago. The installers were there within two days, and they were super friendly and helpful. They were patient and cheerful throughout the process which took over six hours. Highly recommended to anyone on the fence!

Tom Reviewed Dish Reviews

The transition from a cable provider to Dish was very painless. Dish met every mark the set in the setup process. I've used their customer service via online chat once and got quick and accurate help. The different user interface involves a learning curve, but that's to be expected. Some of the Dish features are better than their cable counterparts (fast forward/backward for example) in my opinion. I had to wait 10 days to get internet installed by Dish's partner. That was a long time to rely on my phone's bandwidth. I'd encourage Dish to work with their paretners to shorten the time lag between TV installations and internet installations.

TV is great. Enjoying all the channels Dish has to offer. Not satisfied with internet. Cable from the street main phone box still over ground. It runs along the main street out over my backyard over my fence and to the house phone box. Clearly in plain site. Anybody can cut the cable. Still waiting to see what your Century Link is going to do about it. They are supposed to bury it.

Erub McCollum ,

Erub Reviewed Dish Reviews

So far the service has been good. If you are used to cable its tricky to learn the ins and outs of the box and where channels are but the voice command on the remote is handy. The only problem I have so far is that when I signed up I told them I didn't want any of those trial add ons that start charging you after a month if you don't cancel. So this month,, the first month of service, I get a charge on my cc for one of these services. Now I am spending ridiculous amounts of time on hold trying to get this fixed. UGH!!! This is what I wanted to avoid and why I asked for no trial ad ons.

The channels are placed a little weird, if that makes sense. Example; MTV, usually channel 49 but with dish its 161? Internet is great. The only "bad" review i have to say is that when i click on a channel, it takes a couple of seconds to go into the channel. Maybe its just me tv?? Other than that everything is great.
