Satellite TV for Less - Where to Get the Best Satellite TV Deal
Satellite TV for Less
There's a war going on between the two major satellite TV providers - DISH Network and DIRECTV. They're offering hundreds of dollars worth of free satellite TV equipment, cheap programming, and even free gifts to get you to subscribe to their services.
Here's what they're giving away, and here's where to get the best deals on what they're not giving away ...
Free Satellite TV System
Both DISH Network and DIRECTV will give you all the equipment you need for satellite TV viewing - a satellite dish and up to four receivers - absolutely free.
They'll also give you a free DVR (digital video recorder) so you can record your favorite programs, or a free HD (high definition) receiver so you can watch your shows in high def format.
Installation of the entire system in up to four rooms of your home is also free, and your installer will even show you how to operate your system.
So what's the catch? In order to get a free satellite TV system from DISH Network or DIRECTV you have to subscribe to their programming service.

DISH Network programming starts at .99 per month for their 40-channel DishFamily Pak, and goes up to .99 for their “Everything” Pak which has 350 channels.
