Wasn't happy with dish Network at all I feel like I was overcharged hidden fees and terrible reception from satellite antenna two days to get them to come out and check things out to make it right

Dish started out great, but as the monthly bill increased just about every other month I dropped them. The bill was under $100 and by the time I dropped Dish it was more than$135 per month. Not to mention the black out with other station networks. That did it for me . It was happening to often

Have had Dish service for almost a year. Service has only been interrupted once due to a nearby thunderstorm but it returned shortly thereafter. On the one occasion I needed to contact Dish by phone, the representative solved the problem in a matter of minutes and also told me how to solve it if it happened again. It never reoccurred. The representative answered every question, was patient and was skilled.

My grandma had Dish at her house before she passed away and so I would watch at her house with her. I loved the great reception and amount of channels to choose from. Connectivity was very on point and no issues with recording and playing back shows

I really liked Dish, I had them for many years and had a good overall experience. I used them in several states during my early adulthood. The issue I had was price. I didn't see the value once the streaming services picked up. I could get the same stuff streaming for about 60% cheaper. I would consider using the company again, but not at the rates they are charging.

Dish is the best source of TV viewing that we have come across. They offered us a very fair and reasonable price to install their product in our home, and offered a lot more movie channels than our previous encounters with their competitors. The only sad thing that neither Dish, or the other satelite providers can't fix is when it rains, the cloud cover blocks the single to the dish.

Dish internet was pretty good, but when there was weather storms your internet connection and TV went fuzzy and off. So you had to wait until a storm had passed. They did link up with AT&T at one point and I never got to try their internet, maybe it didn't have the blotchy/buffering that Dish had due to the weather. But I will say when it did work, it worked well enough to get the job done.

Dish was great when we had it for some years until we moved! The speed was great and we didn’t have too many problems! If it was extremely windy then we had to go turn the dish and then it was fine. We enjoyed our internet while we had Dish.

Great internet service, internet was fast, with uploads of movies, websites, etc. I had 4 tvs, 4 phones, 2 computers linked to the internet and the speed was good on that many. Price comparable to other internet services.

Life of Frog South Bend, IN

Absolutely horrible service. Yes, the Hopper to record shows is nice, but unfortunately we could only record 2 channels at a time, and if the weather was bad, your recording was all messed up. Anytime it rained hard, the wind blew hard, or snow fell, we lost signal. You couldn't watch anything or use the internet. And the internet was the worst we have ever had! You cannot stream any movies you download. Forget about having strong enough signal to download files from work or the bandwidth to send large files in your email! They are partnered with HughesNet for internet and both Dish and HughesNet are awful. Just shop around for a better internet provider or for StarLink.

Most satellite companies have trouble keeping service during storms. Dish not only has affordable plans, they also make a strong effort to have uninterrupted service. Customer Service Agents are kind, and lead over any problem no matter how big, or small.

I enjoyed the service and channels provided. Their DVR system was pretty good with commercial skip. Like most services prices went up steadily the whole time I was a customer. If you like most of what you watch in one place they are fine, however with more streaming services coming out every day that is hard to do.

Bob Trammell Los Angeles, CA

I contracted with Dish through a local provider in the hope of lowering my cable/internet bill. They had a booth at the local county fair. The installer arrived and did a survey of my home and told me they would install the dish system on my roof, but - couldn't guarantee that they would not damage my roof - couldn't connect to the coax inside my home - insisted they would need to put holes in my walls to the outside of the house and run their fiber along the floorboards I sent them home.

I live in an isolated area in extreme Northern California with no cell service, and little else and what's available is totally unsatisfactory. Dish has provided me with mostly uninterrupted serviocce for my internet and entertainment (TV) for over 5 years. I've never had such service in all the years (over 60!) I've used the others.

Satellite internet just isn’t reliable especially when you live in the Southeast where there are storms most afternoons, May through August. It was dial-up at best and didn’t work most of the time for simple tasks such as accessing email or trying to just buy some things online. After many service calls we just decided that no matter what we do we are not going to get good internet and canceled our service. The cost just wasn’t worth it. Dish tried their best but it all just depends on where you live.

I didn't want Dish TV to begin with. It was somewhat pushed on me thru a HughesNet CSR when I was ordering internet. I don't watch TV much so I went with as cheap and basic as possible. Set-up is aggrevating. I guess for the tech savvy they would be fine but not your "average Joe". Now I watch it even less. I think I would like the shows from an antennae better than what I have with a satellite. If they want to improve things the installer needs to have the time to actually set up the entire system so that I can pick up my remote and change channels. KISS

Was good until I moved and wasn't able to pay the few they charge for installing the equipment at the new place they will give you free installation when you 1st sign up but charge you $3k to move it and in o there to keep your acct you have to agree to 6 months or more and weather you have service or not you have to finish out the contract

I was with dish for 2 years. I had a bundle package. I was restricted to the channels they put together or get charged twice as much by adding one channel. I also was supposed to have one bill. I didn't receive any bill for almost the entire time. I was charged all at once. Not my mistake, yet my service was terminated due to their error.

I cancelled my DISH service after the promotional period. One, the price went up significantly, and two, every minor storm, rain, or wind caused the reception to go out. When weather is bad is exactly when you need to see reports and warnings. Cable proved more reliable.

I was a customer of dish for many years. But during the pandemic my DVR went out and they sent seven representatives one per month into my home to exchange DVRs because they sent me seven in a row that were defective. When I started to complain about it I got nothing but push back. I was given a credit but then apparently because I called to complain too many times they took the credit back even thoughMy DVR never worked properly after that so I went back to the hell that is Comcast
