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 $104.99 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 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 ($62.99 a month) has over 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.

What is the least expensive DISH package?

America’s Top 120 ($84.99 a month, 190 channels) is the least expensive DISH package.

DISH’s deal, DISH 55, offers discounts and perks for customers 55 years of age and older. When you sign up for a DISH plan by phone at +1-877-926-9611 or on the DISH site, selecting the DISH 55 special offer gets you six free months of identity theft protection and one free On Demand movie every month.

Does DISH have any deals for new customers?

DISH will waive the $199 installation fee for new and qualifying former DISH customers. Check the special offers if you sign up on the site or be sure to ask the representative who’s helping you start your service.
