Is DishLATINO worth it?

DishLATINO is definitely good. It has the same high channel counts, affordability, price guarantee, Hopper 3 DVR, new-customer deals, and parental controls as DISH, our Editor’s Choice for best overall TV provider.

Concerning the Latino part of DishLATINO: Of its 55–270+ channels, 63+ broadcast en Español. Since four of the five DishLATINO packages have nearly all of those canales, you’ll only have to decide which packages has the English-language channels you want.

DishLATINO also has the same cons as DISH—limited bundling options and DVR fees—but that’s about it.

So overall, DishLATINO is worth it, just like standard DISH. But skip the way-too-basic plans (Básico and Clásico) and go for Plus, Dos, or Max, which have reasonable pricing and a solid mix of channels in both languages.

Why you should trust us: Our expert editors surveyed hundreds of DISH Network customers, researched pricing and speeds, and tested the service in our own homes, and then rated it on a five-star scale according to four essential criteria:

Editorial star rating: 4.36/5.00

DishLATINO has free installation, free premium channels, and senior benefits

DishLATINO has the same deals and promotions as DISH Network. These include free installation, free premium channels, an eAutoPay discount, and special benefits for military and senior citizens.

Some of these DishLATINO deals are applied automatically to online orders. Others require checking a box during checkout.

DishLATINO plans have affordability but fewer channels than DISH packages

If you’re looking for a quick recommendation so you can cross “order TV service” off your task list, we’ve crunched the numbers and come up with two DishLATINO plans we think you’ll like.

If money is your top concern, DishLATINO Clásico ($69.99 a month) has the best value with 180+ channels, including 60 out of 63 available Spanish-language channels. The English-language channels leave a lot to be desired, but you’ll have plenty of Spanish content to watch.

If your familia is bilingual, you’ll want the best and biggest package, DishLATINO Max. It has 270+ channels, including all 63 that broadcast en Español.

DishLATINO beats the competition in channels and value

DishLATINO is one of only three TV providers that has full packages geared toward Latino customers. The others are DIRECTV and Spectrum.

DIRECTV has more Spanish-language channels than DishLATINO, higher prices (even before the second-year rate hike), and a weaker DVR. Spectrum has an even weaker DVR—but it offers no contracts and much better prices. Spectrum also has 12 more Spanish-language channels than DISH—but DISH has more English-language channels than Spectrum.

Cox, Optimum, Astound Broadband powered by RCN, Verizon Fios, and Xfinity at least have Latino add-on packs. Since these providers collectively serve a good-sized chunk of the US, we’ll examine their Latino package add-ons so you can compare them to DishLATINO.

Provider Price Total channels Spanish channels DVR Details
DishLATINO $61.99–$102.99/mo. 55–270+ 33–63 500 hrs. View Plans for DISH
DIRECTV Spanish $59.99–$159.99/mo. 120–350+ 55–105 200 hrs. View Plans for DIRECTV
Spectrum Mi Plan Latino $39.99/mo. for 12 mos. 170+ 75+ varies View Plans for Spectrum
Spectrum TV Stream Latino $24.99/mo. for 12 mos. 45+ 45+ varies View Plans for Spectrum

Latino add-on packs from other providers

As you can see in the table, these Latino add-on packs don’t have quite as many channels as DishLATINO, DIRECTV, or Spectrum. Also, the monthly fee for each of them adds 6%–40% to your total monthly bill. And none of these providers have a two-year price guarantee like DishLATINO.

But some of these providers’ Latino offerings have some cool stuff that DishLATINO lacks.

  • Verizon Fios has four different regional Latino plans (Región Mexicana, Región Caribeña, Región Sudamericana, and Región Española), so you can pick the best one for you. And you can add additional regiónes for only $5/mo.
  • Xfinity has a bilingual version of its widely lauded XR15 voice remote and the feature-rich X1 DVR.

Verizon Fios has the most channels of any service for $129 a month, and it’s only $10 more per month for up to 53 Spanish channels. And Xfinity has wider availability, but the Xfinity Latino add-on and the X1 DVR would add $42 to your payment.

But overall, we think DishLATINO is the way to go since it has full Latino packages, the more affordable—and most powerful—DVR, and a two-year price guarantee.

Here’s a sampling of the English-language channels included in each DishLATINO package:

  • DishLATINO Básico: Baby First, CSPAN, MLB Extra Innings, NHL Center Ice, shopping and religious channels
  • DishLATINO Clásico: Baby TV, Disney XD, Free Speech TV, NASA, lots of music channels
  • DishLATINO Plus: AMC, Cartoon Network, Fuse, Nick Jr., Syfy, TBS, USA, and more
  • DishLATINO Dos: A&E, Animal Planet, Bloomberg, Bravo, Disney Channel, HGTV, IFC, Lifetime, MTV, National Geographic, Nickelodeon, OWN, Paramount Network, TNT, and more
  • DishLATINO Max: ESPN, FOX Movie Channel, FS1, Freeform, FX, Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Drama, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, HISTORY, MLB Network, NBA TV, THE MOVIE CHANNELTM, Travel Channel, VH1, and more

Now you can see why we call DishLATINO Max the best overall plan—it has a solid mix of popular English channels, plus every Spanish channel DISH carries. Now let’s check out the DishLATINO DVR situation so you know how many pelîculas y programas you can store.

DishLATINO equipment includes the Hopper 3 DVR, Hopper Duo, and more

DishLATINO plans come with the same gear as DISH plans: either the Hopper Duo, Hopper 3, or Wally—and as many Joeys as you have TVs (if you want ‘em).

  • Hopper 3 DVR/receiver ($10/mo.): The best DVR DishLATINO has to offer stores up to 2,000 hours of content and records up to 16 shows at once. It also has Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube built-in (you’ll need to subscribe to each service separately), plus Bluetooth, 4K support, and quad split-screen.
  • Hopper Duo DVR/receiver ($5/mo.): If you don’t need the Hopper 3’s incredible stats, you can save $5/mo. with this more modest Hopper, which records 2 shows at once and stores 125 hours of recordings. It also has Netflix, but no other streaming apps, and features Bluetooth connectivity—but it doesn’t support 4K.
  • Wally receiver ($5/mo.): If DVR features aren’t on your needs list, you can go receiver-only with the Wally.
  • Joey/4K Joey/Wireless Joey ($5/mo. each): You can add up to 7 TVs to your DISH service with these extenders that all do pretty much the same thing except the 4K Joey is required to watch 4K content on the additional TVs. Watch out for the activation fees on these. DISH charges a one-time fee of $50 at signup if you order more than three Joeys (plus one Hopper 3). And there’s a fee for every Wireless Joey ($25) and 4K Joey ($50).

All of the above devices come with the DISH voice remote, y se hablan Español.

DISH voice remote

Hoppers and Joeys come with the DISH voice remote, which features backlit keys (handy), a remote locator (even handier), and programmable shortcut keys (handiest of all).

DISH Anywhere app

The DISH Anywhere app for iOS and Android allows you to watch live, on-demand, and recorded content away from tu casa. It can also function as a remote for Hoppers and Joeys in case the niños lose the remote again. And if they did, you can use the app to set and manage parental controls to teach them a lesson.

DishLATINO customer satisfaction

Each year we survey thousands of customers from top-rated TV providers—in English. So we have customer-satisfaction data on DISH, but not DishLATINO. But since the two products are so similar (aside from the obvious linguistic difference), the data is largely relevant to both.

To see how DISH (and DishLATINO, by association) fared in the survey, check out the summary in our DISH TV review. Or, if data and details float your boat, check out the entire survey.


How much does DishLATINO cost?

DishLATINO has five packages priced $61.99–$102.99 a month offering 55–270+ channels. The Plus, Dos, and Max plans all have the same Spanish-language channels—but not the same English ones. Básico and Clásico are missing a handful of Spanish-language channels.

Does DishLATINO have internet?

Neither DishLATINO nor DISH sells internet service. Check out our DISH Internet guide to learn more about DISH’s internet options
