Are Online Satellite Dish Promotions for Real?

How to find the best deals and avoid fraudulent websites and potential problems. Over the last few years many people are choosing satellite over cable or newwork TV because of superior picture quality, bigger selection of programs and channels, good customer service and a drop in price. Large advertising campaigns by satellite TV sellers has helped in demystifying the technology.

Direct TV and DISH Network sell the majority of all satellite TV systems in the USA. Both offer practically the same thing. Over 200 program channels, integrated digital video recording, high definition TV, great picture and sound quality and superior 24 hour customer service. Direct TV is a little more expensive but normally includes more channels. DISH Network offers more movie and International channels.

When you place an order online, some allow customers to design systems matched to their home. You will also schedule the time a professional installed will come to your home. The system will either be shipped to you before the installation date or the installer will bring it along. It is that easy. All you have to do is be home for the installation.

There are, unfortunately many Satellite TV websites that will scam you. They offer monthly subscription rates under $10 and next day installation. Once signed up you will find hidden activation and usage fees and high shipping costs. Installation dates missed or performed by inexperienced workers doing shoddy work. No help or customer service available and huge cancellation fees. These sites eventually get shut down but you have already lost your money. Before signing up make sure company has been in business for at least 1 year and is certified by the network and have made at least a 1000 installations. They should have no hidden fees and offer a full refund if installation fails. Customer service should be available via phone or email. There are many great sites that have these qualifications.
