Top Useful Phone Apps For Satellite TV Customers

Dish Network

Dish Anywhere App

Home integration has never been as complete as it is these days. There are plenty of mobile apps that help you get the most value out of your satellite TV service. The only requirement for being to use them is that you have a high-speed internet connection. These apps let you engage more deeply with the services you are availing.

Dish

The Dish Anywhere app lets you watch Dish Network content while on the move. It also allows using an iPhone to access your DVR, watch live TV, and stream On Demand content. If you have a version of the Hopper DVR with Sling technology in it, it is also possible to download recordings from the DVR. The iPhone also functions as your TV remote. Filtering Dish Network content for kids is also easier, using the Dish Anywhere™ Kids Profile feature.

DirecTV

DirecTV services have long moved past their dependence on a home television set. Take the DirecTV Phone App for instance – it lets you watch on-demand shows, movies, and live TV on a mobile device. You can also control the TV from your phone or tablet, set the DVR to record shows, or send a show from the phone to the TV. The DirecTV Kids App uses child-friendly features to allow only age-appropriate content. The NFL Sunday Ticket app lets you watch live games and receive live highlights.

Satellite Dish Finder

Dish Network Channel List

Watching TV On The Go

This app uses the GPS and magnetic sensors in your phone to pinpoint satellites for the bets reception. It handles all the math and tell you the ideal antenna alignment for a strong signal. You can create custom points of interest and set a preference for satellite. Satellite Dish Finder tells you if trees or posts are messing up your signal.

Dish Align

Ever had your satellite dish falling out of alignment and wrecking service mid-game? The Dish Align app lets you fix this, using a built-in compass, and the specified information on the location of your dish, and requested satellite. This app is so good at telling you how to place the dish, that even satellite technicians use it when installing a new connection.

TV Forecast

It is not too useful knowing what show is on now, but what about the upcoming ones? TV Forecast gives episode listings for upcoming and past episodes of programs, and features pop-up notifications, email reminders, and the option to bookmark your spot in a TV series.

Choosing A Pay TV Option Between DirecTV And XFinity

DirecTV Packages

Satellite TV

Pay TV giants DirecTV and XFinity have been around for some time now, but few customers are really aware of the differences between the two. The former has recently been dubbed the largest pay TV company in the nation, boasting 26 million subs. XFinity was former champion, and actually has more subscribers than DirecTV.

For the ultimate in media experience, consumers would choose one of these two, or a close runner-up, Dish Network. This post will help see why either suits subscribers better, based on needs and preferences.

Reviews

DirecTV’s satisfaction rating on Consumer Affairs starts out at 4 out of 5. With a steady rating on the American Customer Satisfaction Index, it also ranked third in customer satisfaction last year.

Meanwhile, XFinity has their lowest Consumer Affairs rating as 1 star out of 5. ACSI surveys show relatively low satisfaction among subscribers for the past several years. Unresponsive customer service is one of the things that subs complain about.

Subscription Price

The cost of a DirecTV package varies based on the plan of choice; base packages start at around $19.99 a month for twelve months, based on the deal offered. This brings more than 145 channels for a two-year contract. At the other end is Premier package, which brings 315+ channels for $89.99 to $99.99 a month for 12 months.

XFinity’s offerings range from $49.99 to $139.99 a month for 12 months. The basic package brings 140 channels outside of a minimum contract, while their top cable package bundles 220+ channels with Internet and phone service.

Cancellation Fees

DirecTV

Digital TV

DirecTV is diligent about following cancellation policies. You pay $15 along with a prorated early cancellation fee of around $20 a month. For bundled packages, this varies based on the service.

XFinity, on the other hand, has a vague cancellation policy, where you are recommended to call customer service department and discuss the terms of the current contract. The provider has been reported as charging termination fees as high as $1,000.

DVR

DirecTV’s flagship DVR, Genie, comes paired with an attachment that allows users to stream TV on a wireless-enabled screen and download recorded videos to devices. Called the GenieGO, this service option holds a one-time fee based on the contract and service type, and no monthly fees. Fees for the Genie are dependent on the time the subscription started.

Xfinity’s X1 DVR is a cloud-enabled device with 500GB of storage that lets you record movies and TV shows. It comes with a one-time fee based on market, and monthly fees corresponding to a normal HD DVR system.

5 Reasons You May Want To Lay Off Cutting The Cord

DirecTV Choice Package

Satellite Vs Streaming

Ever since it became possible to watch videos uninterrupted on computers and other digital devices, cord cutting has been growing as a trend. But leave aside what everyone else is doing for a minute, Think on the effects of ditching your DirecTV or Dish connection (cable isn’t really worth hanging on to) and moving to a streaming service full-time. Following are some of the things which are bound to affect you.

Streaming Has Limited Content

Back when Netflix was as big as it ever was, we got to watch loads of premium movies. It was good while it lasted; I certainly partook. But then their Hollywood contracts ran out and the premium experience was off the table. If you want the maximum number of movies with real stars, traditional Pay TV is still the best option. And we all know satellite TV trumps cable in that category.

Streaming Can’t Deliver The Same Quality

There is always a way to watch a movie, but HD quality isn’t guaranteed in every one of them. If you are particular about consistent quality in the content you get to watch, then satellite is the best option to go with. Cord cutting would deprive you of that in many instances.

Satellite Service Is Guaranteed To Work

DirecTV Packages

Cons Of Cord Cutting

With streaming services, there is always the lingering doubt if they will go off when you are engrossed in a movie or show, or worse, a game. The sound could diminish in quality, or you could get bombarded with non-stop messages saying you don’t have the right plug-in installed. The worst scenario is when you try to play an incompatible format, or there is no English language option for the piece you want to watch.

Satellite doesn’t serve up any of these issues, and if they do occur anytime, you are just a phone call away from having it fixed. You don’t need to watch for bugs or the software going out of date. The choices are simple, and the features available.

Ads

Streamed content often drags in ads, because these are a source of revenue for the service. You cannot skip these right away or avoid them altogether, and that gets in the way of watching the program. Satellite programs and movies don’t usually have ads, and there is nothing that you have to click through or get past to enjoy what you were actually meaning to watch.

Regional Restrictions

Digital content sources like YouTube have lots of geographically licensed content, which still shows up in search results even if you cannot watch the video. Satellite plays all its content, anywhere, anytime.

These are some of the reasons why you may not want to rush into cord cutting just yet, if ever.
