DISH deal and promotion FAQs

What is the best deal on DISH Network?

The America’s Top 200 plan is the best value on DISH. You get 240+ channels for $94.99 a month, and the price is guaranteed for two years.

How do I negotiate a better deal on DISH?

You can call DISH customer retention (+1-866-974-0781, 8:00 p.m.–12 a.m. eastern time) at the end of your two-year contract to try to negotiate a better deal. What DISH offers depends on the representative, so be extra sweet to them when you call.

DISH, however, does have a package that’s available only to existing customers—meaning you can switch to it after your original two-year contract runs out. The DISH Flex Pack ($47.99 a month) has 50 popular channels to start, and then you can customize it with a variety of add-ons that have local, kids, movie, or sports channels for $6.00–$15.00 a month each.

Does DISH have any deals for new customers?
