Reliable reception and picture quality
The last thing you want to worry about when it's time to watch TV is your signal. We changed that, now all you need to worry about is what to watch first on our huge selection of channels because DISH has 99% signal reliability, based on a nationwide study of our customers.
No need to check the forecast
We do everything to make sure your signal is as strong as possible. Occasionally, something like very heavy rain or snow could cause a brief interruption in signal quality, but those instances are rare and typically very brief. If this were to happen regularly, we can inspect your system for damage and make sure your system is back to running at peak performance as soon as possible.
Cable can have problems that satellite doesn't
All TV, even cable, travels through satellite before it reaches you. Cable also has issues that satellite doesn't with possible problems like underground cables getting cut by construction activity or homeowner maintenance, branches falling on overhead cables or other weather related problems. Those issues can take a repairman to come out, evaluate and fix the problem, leaving you without TV.
