Dish network - Nice Hardware, Arabic Package sucks and expensive
DENVER, COLORADO -- I am trying to be very fair in this review, I have been with DishNetwork for 4 years now with the Arabic SuperPack. The DVR receiver was nice, the channels uptime was really great. The reason I left them because they never update their Arabic programming lineup. Except only once in the last 4 years.
FTA channels are now in the range of 800 FTA Arabic channels, and Dishnetwork brings about 25 channels, which half of them are the most boring channels. So, I end up watching about 3/4 channels paying $61/mo for these channels.
Compared to other IPTV based packages right now, their package would be worth $20 max. I edned up leaving them because of the very limited and poor selection of Arabic channels. I am willing to come back to them if they upgrade their package, and I mean serious upgrade.
Other than this, from my close network of friends more and more international TV customers are now leaving DN for other providers who provide a serious Arabic package, since DishNetwork packages now cannot be compared to a package that offers 200-500 channels for half of the price.
