Want Dish in your home? They’ll install it free if you act now

Man watching NFL on Dish.

One of the worst parts of signing up for cable or, to be honest, any new service is the part where you have to wait on the service installation. It can take hours and, even if you’re lucky enough to get it done on time, it is costly. But, if you act now, you can get Dish — one of the best live TV services — to come to your house and install your Dish and set up your receiver for free. That’s a savings of $200 over the usual charge. Tap the button below to check out how simple getting Dish is, and keep reading to see our take.

What to expect with free Dish installation

Waiting is the worst part of the installation game, of course, almost worse than paying. Once you’ve ordered the service, you can get it professionally installed for free as soon as tomorrow. But, it can almost ruin your day when a tech is set to arrive at any point over the course of 10+ hours. This is why, on the day of your technician’s scheduled visit, you’ll get a 75-minute arrival window so you can go about the rest of your day as planned. You’ll also get access to My Tech, which takes a page from services like Uber and Lyft to show you exactly where your tech is at on a GPS map. There’s no wondering if you’ll get a tech today and no wasting time calling support and waiting through the lines.

Please note that this free service is far from an installation and run. While at your home, your technician will analyze your property to find the optimal location for a Dish satellite to be installed, assemble and mount it, and then get your receiver set up and remotes connected to it. While the bulk of their job is on the hardware side of things, they’ll help you update your receiver and answer any questions your have about it while they’re there.

And this is just all of what is on the free installation service. If you’re willing to pay a bit extra (charges depend on work completed) your technician team can help you get your TV setup and home theater system wired and ready during the same visit at your Dish satellite and receiver installation. To get all of this, including the free installation (a value of $200) just tap the button below and get started building your Dish channel package.

Best Apple AirPods alternatives for 2024: Bose, Sony, Marshall, and more
Apple AirPods Pro 2 and Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II

Apple has played a significant role in advancing the popularity and technology of in-ear true wireless earbuds. Their glossy white design has become a recognizable status symbol and they have introduced features like active noise cancellation (ANC), voice-assistant support with Siri, and Spatial Audio for an immersive sound experience.

If you're in the market for new wireless earbuds and considering either the Apple AirPods (3rd generation) or Apple's flagship AirPods Pro (2nd generation), you've likely noticed that all that technology and cachet comes at a premium price. The latest 3rd-gen AirPods cost $169, the most recent 2nd-gen AirPods Pro cost $249, and the 2nd-gen AirPods cost $129.

Apple’s entry-level AirPods are back under $100
Apple AirPods placed on a table next to their charging case

If the more recent models of Apple's AirPods are still too expensive for you, even with the discounts from AirPods deals, then you may want to check out Walmart's offer for the second-generation Apple AirPods. They're currently available for only $99, following a $30 discount on their original price of $129. If you weren't able to get these wireless earbuds for this cheap from previous sales, now's your chance to do so, but you need to hurry because Apple devices almost always get sold out quickly when their prices get slashed.

Why you should buy the Apple AirPods 2
The latest models of Apple's AirPods are the third-generation Apple AirPods and the second-generation Apple AirPods Pro, but the second-generation Apple AirPods are still a worthwhile investment, especially if you can get them for this cheap. You won't get features such as head-tracking spatial audio and active noise cancellation, but the Apple AirPods 2 are still extremely simple to set up with your iPhone or iPad -- you just need to open their charging case near your device, and tap on the notifications to complete the process. They will work with Android smartphones and tablets, but with the extra step of pressing the button at the back of the case to initiate pairing.

LG’s OLED Evo-tailored soundbar is available for preorder for $800
The LG SG10TY soundbar.

Earlier today, LG satiated TV enthusiasts by announcing the pricing and availability for its anticipated 2024 slate of OLED evo G4 and C4 televisions that wowed us at CES 2024. But the Korean electronics giant isn't done for the day and has also announced that its latest 3.1-channel wireless Dolby Atmos soundbar, the SG10TY, designed to pair perfectly with evo G Series TVs, is also available today for preorders and will cost $800.

The first of LG's CES 2024-announced soundbars to see the light of day, the SG10TY (and its sibling, S70TY, which matches with LG's 2024 QNED TVs) is a slim wall-mountable soundbar that is meant to work seamlessly with  LG's 2024  OLED evo G4 Series TVs in more ways than one. While it's a perfect fit, size-wise, for the 65-inch OLED EVO G4, matching its width and frame bezel, the LG SG10TY integrates with any of the evo G4 sizes, from its smallest 55-inch to the huge 97-inch model.
