As the first satellite TV provider in the United States, Dish Network set the standard for satellite TV service, with professional customer service representatives, professional installations and a wide channel selection that offers programming for the entire family. These services have saved American families time and money since Dish Network first went into business in the 90’s. Dish Network was also the first to offer their viewers the MPEG-4, the first video converter box for standard and high definition formatting. They were the first to design a digital video recorder, making it easier to get the convenience of a VCR, while allowing customers to get rid of bulky equipment. Dish Network was also the first Pay TV provider that offered the MPEG-4 in a multi-room DVR receiver. This allowed families the convenience of one receiver for two television sets, saving the family additional funds for service set-up in the home.
Dish Network was also the first Pay TV provider to offer the phenomenal HD 1080p formatting. This is comparable to Blu Ray technology for the clarity and detail it delivers. HD 1080p formatting has up to six times the resolution as standard formatting for a cinematic experience in the privacy and comfort of the family home.
Dish Network was also the first in the Pay TV industry to offer their customers a digital to analog converter. Dish Network also offered the first DVR converter box, allowing their customers the same convenience and choices they had before the switch. With Dish Network, subscribers also have the benefit of local and international programming. Dish Network was the first provider to offer local stations with programming packages and the first to offer international programming options with the DishMEXICO package. DishMEXICO gives you native programming in Spanish for the Hispanic community in the US.
Dish Network also offers international programming from other countries like Africa, Greece, Russia, Israel, South Asia, China, Japan, Italy, Vietnam, France, Germany, Poland, the Philippines, Portugal and more. Dish Network provides more than 170 channels in 28 different languages to provide foreign residents with familiar programming in easy-to-understand native languages.
Dish Network was the first to offer Interactive Television. This service offers subscribers added convenience and entertainment with bill pay options, sports packages and family games that can be played on the television, from the comfort of the couch. Interactive TV offers a way to spend quality time with the family, on a comfortable monthly budget that leaves time and room for other necessities. With Dish Network, subscribers not only have the opportunity to get affordable, family-friendly programming, but to get innovative, award-winning products and services that helped set industry standard for their competitors.
