Dish Network or Cablevision Optimum?


In today’s flourishing world of home entertainment technology, we expect more from internet service providers. We want a company that understands these demands and constantly finds new ways to give us the best possible services at the lowest prices. We need a company that caters to many different needs so that we know that we will get exactly what we need from a TV and internet service provider.

Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of choosing Dish over Cablevision Optimum packages. We’ll see which one better fits your needs and today’s growing demands.

When we look at Dish and Cablevision, whose service is branded as Optimum, the first thing we notice is the price.

The Optimum Economy package starts at $44.95 a month, while DISH offers four different packages loaded with channels for lower cost: $19.99/month, $29.99/month, $34.99/month and $39.99/month. Indeed, at basically the same price as the “Economy” package through Optimum, Dish gives you twelve months of their America’s Top 250 package at $44.99/month. That’s nearly the most luxurious package Dish offers! It comes with 290+ channels and loads of extras. Optimum Economy doesn’t even come close.

Dish saves you money and gives you more. It’s no surprise so many people switch to Dish who used to be Optimum customers in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Utah, Montana or Wyoming.

With Dish, you also get true mobility with your TV. No restrictions on where you are when you watch live TV, unlike Optimum’s requirement that you be in your house on your own Internet connection in order to watch live TV. Dish lets you take your live and recorded shows anywhere you want on your phone, tablet or computer.

Dish also offers:

* All of your local channels, including the HD ones

* Nationwide Coverage! Reliability, quality, and control!

* Internet for rural customers with speeds as fast as 4G! Welcome to the new age of Internet speed!

* 2 full years of free HD

* Free HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and Starz for three months

* TV and Internet bundling deals (but we’ll find you the best price and service–sometimes it is better to avoid one-company bundles)

And did you know that your Dish bill doesn’t include the taxes you get on a cable company’s bill? That’s right, you get to avoid all of the “surprise!” fees and mystery charges that local cable companies are legally allowed to hide in their bills.

Dish also gives more options than Cablevision for those who speak a second language, as well! Dish offers four different Spanish-language packages and over 100 different packages from 25 regions around the world. As the leader in international programming options, programming from India, China, South East Asia, Europe, Africa and South America that local cable companies wouldn’t dream of offering, Dish provides in popular packages at the best prices.

Your next step: call to compare your current bill to a new quote. You will get the latest promotional price and equipment, and you’ll know what your actual bill would be–no commitment. Most who switch to Dish save over $300 in just their first year!
