Side-by-side Comparison of DISH’s Top Plans

If you’ve decided to go with DISH Network but aren’t quite sure on which package to choose, we’ve created a side-by-side table to help you quickly compare the most important factors. Keep in mind DISH lets you change plans anytime (even days into your new service), so if you end up with a plan that’s not a great fit, simply call ’em up and they’ll update your programming, usually within minutes. They’ll also prorate the charges on your next bill (so you don’t pay for unused programming) and unlike most phone and cable companies, won’t hit you with hidden downgrading fees.

Note: the rates/specs below reflect the current promos, so expect them to change every few months. If you spot a plan that covers all your needs and you’re ready to switch, it’s usually in your best interest to lock it in before the terms change (it’s difficult to predict whether the next special will result in a better overall value for your package of interest).
