Choose the right service provider.

ATT:

AT&T offers plenty of exciting packages and plans to their subscribers and the number of channels varies with each plan. Around 210 most popular channels are available in HD for traditional cable boxes, individual DVRs, and home DVRs. Furthermore, in many of the packages premium channels like Cinemax and HBO are available for either free or at a lower price.

Internet Speed

Internet speed is one of the most significant factors, which we look for when choosing an internet service provider. AT&T offers an incredible internet speed to their subscribers. A minimum download speed of 45 Mbps and an upload speed of 6 Mbps are available with AT&T. In addition to this, AT&T also supports HD streaming services such as YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix. Hence, subscribers can easily access their favorite TV shows and movies through AT&T internet plans.

AT&T is targeting areas where there is “a solid investment case.” This means that they like to invest in areas where people like to subscribe and the permitting process is easily accessible. Analysts even say that they tend to target those markets where they are already operating.

CHARTER:

Charter Communications bought Time Warner Cable earlier this year and is now rebranding TWC as Spectrum Cable everywhere. They have recently announced the launch of their Spectrum brand in Lincoln as part of switching markets to Spectrum. In August, Charter officials said that the switchover in Lincoln would happen until next year, but it seems as if the timeline has been moved forward.

Charter spokesman Wes Shirley said that users with a Time Warner plan in Lincoln, having internet speed of 50 Mbps, would now have speeds increased to up to 60 Mbps. In addition to that, some of the residential users with internet speeds less than 50 Mbps might also see a small increase in the internet speeds.

He also said that there will not be any changes in the cable and phone plans unless the user opts to move to a Spectrum plan. However, customers will see the Spectrum brand on everything that was Time Warner Cable earlier. This include bill statements, box displays, and retail store signage.

Charter is also planning to make all the acquired Time Warner Cable markets digital, even though they have not said when this will happen. They also added that they are planning to add 20,000 jobs across the nation, but no details were offered on the number of people who will be hired in their Lincoln centers.

COMCAST:
Comcast is planning to introduce a new service that will be appealing to households with low income. As per the program, customers can sign up for internet and television services for a period of seven days or thirty days. This plan is surely introduced to attract low-income households to their services. The plan is called “Xfinity Prepaid” services and under this plan, the users need to pay a one-time equipment fee and they get chance to refill the service as and when needed. The best part, there is no limitation on the number of times a user can renew the service.

The Xfinity Prepaid service does not need a credit check or contract. The service will be made available in Illinois, Georgia, Michigan, Indiana, and Florida. Comcast is also planning to extend the services to their complete customer base by the end of 2017. Comcast recently signed an agreement with the no-contract wireless brand Boost Mobile of Sprint, in order to offer prepaid services at 4,400 locations of Boost Mobile with Comcast footprint. However, Comcast has not released the financial details of the arrangement yet.

DIRECTV OR DISH

There are many reasons to compare the two television giants, DirecTV vs Dish Network. Both of these service providers have a subscriber base of more than 10 billion and have their presence not only in television broadcasting, but also in other related fields like mass communication. Keeping these things in mind, it will be very perplexing for a new user to choose between the two.

Comparing Dish Vs DirecTV

Addition of new products to the services will leave consumers confused on choosing which service provider that is better than the other. Choosing a service provider can be even more confusing if the customer has not tried any satellite TV subscription before, as all the offers can seem to be attractive.

It is good to put the service providers on test to know which of them is better. The DirecTV Vs Dish comparison of offers shared below will help you decide the prefect service provider for your needs.

DirecTV

Exclusivity is the main selling point for DirecTV. They offer a general entertainment network called ‘Audience Network’ exclusively for their subscribers. DirecTV subscription also offers exclusive access to sports packages like the NASCAR HotPass and NFL Sunday Ticket. In addition, DirecTV offers more HD channels than any other service provider does.

DirecTV offers more packages to choose from for the average user than other providers do. Key features offered by DirecTV include:

  • Streaming services
  • Live TV on mobile
  • Smart apps
  • DVR with 1 TB storage

Dish Network

DirecTV Packages

NFL Sunday Ticket

The highlight of Dish Network is the crisp and clear picture quality that they offer. They offer most of the local and international channels in their packages, which are very much affordable. Additionally, the startup Dish Network packages are also cheaper than those offered by DirecTV, and they also offer deals like free installation to new customers.

Apparently, Dish is the cheapest one of the two options. Other than that, some important features offered are:

  • Affordable packages
  • DVR that has a capacity of 2 TB
  • Remote locator
  • International channels

These are some of the important offerings from Dish Network and DirecTV services. Pick the one that suits your needs the best.

The customer base of satellite television services are on the rise lately. Among the numerous service providers, DirecTV is one of the leading names. One of the several advantages with DirecTV is that it offers triple play services. Every year, hundreds and thousands of people switch from their existing television services to modern alternative options, and DirecTV has made the most out of this trend.

As a customer, you may have a lot of concerns while moving away from your current provider to a new provider. As such, it is very important that you have a very clear idea about the different options you have in store. For instance, if you have got any questions about DirecTV services, it is better to clarify them before the move.
