Depends on how hard core you are about your TV. I had the same issue to face and I went with Dish Network - why? Price. They have a Top 50 package that is 22.99 plus tax. Top 100 is 31.99 I believe. Direct TV's base package starts off at 110 channels for 32-33 per month. Locals are about the same - $6-$7 per month. Dish Network is $6 for us for locals. Also, DN charges you $5 a month for each extra receiver after the first one and $49 to activate. DTV also charges $5 a month per extra receiver plus $49 for the extra equipment, but no activation fee. So the pricing is quite similar.
Programming is very similar for the Top 100 and the other with 110 channels. One thing I don't like about the Top 50 is that there is no Fox Sports channel included, a ploy to make you get their Top 100 I'm sure. I think it comes down to the PPV and the sports packages that make them different. Go to their websites and see what channels they offer in their r4espective packages. You'll see they are quite similar, except for the odd ball channels like Greek TV, NASA Vision, etc, etc.
You can't get the NFL Ticket on the Dish network so it was an easy choice for me to go with Direct TV but if sports isn't a big thing you could probably save a little $ going with the Dish network. Of course there is rumors that they might merge so it could be a moot point anyway.
YOU SAID A MOUTHFUL.
I love that TIVO/Direct TV combo.
But even without that, DirectTV is like Coke and Dish Network is like Dr Pepper.
Dont let that WOW advertising fool ya. They are only second best.
TIVO is way cool. My friend had it for a while. Everytime there was nothing to watch we just watch whatever was recorded.
But are there any different features for both services. Are movies more expensive on one side than the other? It seems like they are both reliable services, I guess it comes down to a flip of the coin.
defiantly go with direct tv. the menu system is so much friendlier and easy to use. plus there are a lot of channels that dish doesnt offer. and i velieve direct tv has the largest assortment of HD programming ..

I was playing this on another forum and it can be kinda jokes. Some people think of the most whack shit I swear.
It's pretty simple to play along. All you have to do is reply with the first word that comes into your head when you see this word:
