  • I've had both and have better service with Dish. Really it just depends on the area that you are in whether you will get good service or not.

  • The both charge to much. Time Warner Cable works the best for us.

  • We had Dish Network from 1997 - 2007. We never had problems with the picture going out like people claim and were okay with their package. But then they showed their true colors. They lied to us, kept putting us of, and ended up screwing we switched to DirecTV. DirecTV is more expensive, but does offer more of the channels we want within the package we have. Plus, we will never go back to Dish Network...don't care if they give us satellite TV for free, they aren't allowed in our house again...ever.

  • I had Dish about 7 years ago, and hated it. It was slower than methusela and just generally sucked. Then, I had DirectTV. Good quality, but very expensive. Last year, we switched back to Dish, which has greatly improved in the 5 years that we didn't have it. It's every bit as good as DirectTV - and much cheaper!

  • I have only had DirectTV. The last time i moved the living room furniture around, I unhooked the directtv box and when i put everything back together, no tv. i called customer support and they talked me through it over the phone. Another time we had a snow storm and they sent someone out the next day. I'm very happy with them.
