When it comes to TV service, there are heaps of great options to consider before signing up. You definitely have no business jumping right in with the first TV service that comes to mind.
Two of the main rival services that people have confusion choosing between, are Dish Network and Time Warner Cable. You need to first check out the essential aspects of the service they offer, and then move on to making a detailed comparison and hopefully, an easy choice. We have got the first part covered.
TWC gives a starter package with over 20 channels, which is an affordable way to get local shows and other programming. Pricing goes up for higher tiers, with the top package bringing 200 channels including HBO, as well as tons of On-Demand viewing. The local channel lineup changes based on the area you are living in.
For Dish, the basic package gives you 190 channels, which is a lot more than basic cable plans offer. It is one of the most economical ways to get so many channels together. The highest tiered offering from the provider has over 330 channels, with local lineups varying according to where you are.
TWC has the Preferred TV package, which offers regular sports channels, as well as seasonal sports channels for extra price. The latter group includes choices such as NHL® Center Ice®, NBA League Pass, MLB Extra Innings, and MLS Direct Kick. You can also get mixed packages with the Sports Pass, getting you 25 year-round sports channels.
Dish Network’s sports coverage includes the basic listings and in addition to that, a supplementary Multi-Sport Pack™ with 35 sports channels. Most of these seasonal Dish Network packages can be bought based on a sport, like football, basketball, boxing, baseball, hockey, car racing, rugby, soccer, and cricket. Then there is also the Outdoor Package that carries channels on hunting, shooting and fishing.
Internet And Bundled Packages
Time Warner Cable provides internet packages with speeds of up to 2 Mbps, and has its fastest speeds reaching up to 50 Mbps. In some areas, this goes up to 300 Mbps. The provider also has value bundles based on subscriber needs.
Dish offers DSL with speeds ranging from 7 Mbps to 40 Mbps, with most of the offerings seen as a value bundle option with TV service. Customers get to save big when they go in for a combined package.
