Which DISH Package Is Best for You?
There are just three DISH packages to choose from, which makes it easier to select the best package for you. Ultimately, it will come down to your budget and personal preferences. Below, we will highlight the prices and key features of each DISH TV package to help you make the right decision.
America’s Top 120
America’s Top 120 is DISH’s basic TV package. The plan starts at $79.99 per month with a minimum two-year commitment and a three-year price guarantee. With America’s Top 120, you get over 190 channels, including some of the “all-time favorite” channels like ESPN and Disney.
FYI: Qualifying new subscribers can often receive perks like a $100 prepaid Mastercard!
All DISH TV packages also include local channels available in your area, so you can catch up on your local news or enjoy other local programming. DISH packages (including America’s Top 120) also come with a Google Assistant voice remote, a Hopper Smart HD DVR, 28,000+ On Demand titles, and three free months of the SHOWTIME and STARZ movie channels.
Though the sticker price is not as cheap as some basic cable plans, America’s Top 120 by DISH offers many channel options and extra perks. It is especially good if you want access to all of the most popular national and local channels, as well as a Hopper Smart DVR to record and rewatch your favorite shows. If you don’t want to stay up late to watch your favorite shows or when you're out and about when they air, you can simply set it to record and watch it at your convenience.
America’s Top 200
America’s Top 200 is labeled as the best value plan offered by DISH. The plan starts at $99.99 per month with a minimum two-year commitment and a three-year price guarantee. The $20 price increase gives you everything available in America’s Top 120 plus 50 new channels. Some of these channels include the MLB Network, NBA Network, NHL Network, the Golf Channel, and a few additional movie channels like Hallmark, Disney XD, A&E, and Sundance.
This plan is best for older adults who are willing to spend a little bit more to watch live sports. The extra movie channels are also a big plus, as they greatly increase the amount of content available with your plan. With America’s Top 200, you also get an additional 7,000 On Demand titles, making it an even greater value for movie fans.
America’s Top 250
America’s Top 250 is the largest and most expensive DISH plan. It starts at $109.99 per month with a two-year commitment and three-year price guarantee. The package includes everything available with America’s Top 200 plus 50 more channels, including Turner Classic Movies, STARZ Encore channels, The Movie Channel, Smithsonian, Bloomberg, Nicktoons, and Great American Country. America’s Top 250 also offers a whopping 36,000+ On Demand titles.
This plan is ideal for seniors who want a ton of movie options and are willing to pay a bit more. $109.99 per month is certainly not cheap, but it does come with hundreds of unique channels. Additionally, the thousands of On Demand titles make this plan comparable to multiple streaming services in terms of the amount of available content at your fingertips.
