DISH Network has more HD channels than Directv (read here for proof), DISH Network has profoundly better prices than DIRECTV, and is once again proving that it is at the cutting edge of the Pay-TV HD frontier.
Is FREE HD FOR LIFE reason enough for you to switch to DISH Network?
This just in!
Monday, June 7th 2010 - Directv launches their reactive promotion: Free HD for life, as well.
The DISH Network community is not too concerned with this mainly because we knew it had to be coming. Directv is so far behind, in so many ways, that offering free HD in response to DISH's new promotion was necessary from a business stand-point.
I've written at length, as have others, how Directv's HD selection is incredibly lackluster when put up against DISH Network's HD roster. So, now both offer HD service for free, so that really puts us back to square one: DISH Network offers more HD channels, at a better price.
DISH's new FREE HD for Life offer is revolutionary.
I think on some level we all knew it was coming, and now it is here. This new promotion from DISH is truly a game-changer. DISH has gone on record saying (paraphrase):
You know, you can't walk into a Walmart or a Target and buy a standard definition television anymore, so why would we charge extra for HD programming? That's one of the main reasons we're leading the way in the satellite TV industry and offering FREE HD FOR LIFE!
Do you have Directv right now?
There still remain a very small number of reasons why one might still have Directv (namely sports fans who enjoy the NFL Sunday Ticket premium pay-per-season Football package), but for the most part, anyone on the fence about switching to DISH now has a better reason than ever before to do so.
I understand what brand loyalty is like, and sometimes it is bitter to see your trusted brand so far behind. This has got to be the case for so many Directv customers. DISH has them beat in almost every category there is: Price, Customer Satisfaction, HD-DVRs, HD Channels Selection, Promotions ... The list just keeps going.
Are you a current DISH Network customer right now and want FREE HD FOR LIFE?
If you answered yes to the above then you'll be thrilled to learn that the FREE HD for LIFE promotion is available to existing customers also! Renew your contract for 24 months, or pay a one-time $99 fee, and put your account on AutoPay, and you can now receive free HD service for the life of your service with DISH Network.
Where will the Satellite TV industry go, now that DISH is offering FREE HD FOR LIFE?
It seems logical that at some point in the future everyone will have to offer free HD, or something similar. The beautiful thing is, DISH has constantly proven to you that they are the leader in HD and are innovating the market once again. So, the other companies might follow suit, but then they will have another barrier to hurdle: Why choose less HD channels with a competitor, when you can get more, for the same or better price with DISH Network?
Now that HD is free, with DISH, DISH can continue to focus on expanding its HD market and products. This means we are very likely to continue seeing new channels launch in HD, more local markets launch in HD, and more products and services like the SlingLoaded HD-DVR receiver (called ViP 922).
Enjoy free HD everyone! You deserve it.
