Dish Network Informative - Quality Of Reception
EAGLE POINT, OREGON -- Ooh! what a mistake we made. PLEASE do not try and save a buck, like us, and change to DISH Network. Their quality of reception is much worse than the service we had before. A technician came out to look at the installation and blamed our TV's!! (one of which is a new flat screen) The fan from the receiver also kicks in (like the fan of a car) and we actually have to increase the volume to hear the TV.
We just changed from DirecTV service as I didn't care for their dishonest billing, but I am paying in less quality (one older TV screen may even hurt your eyes, the image is that bad). Very few of the good channels are available in their packages. Please check out your favorite channels before you sign up. Preferably get it on paper as the we were told the channels are available with the specific package when it was not.
I hope this helped someone thinking of changing to save some money. You'll need to weigh up how much you are willing to give up.
Good luck shopping!
