One downside to cable or satellite is that the installation takes time. With most streaming devices, you simply plug them in, connect them to the internet, and away you go. Comparatively, Dish TV requires extra devices to be installed before you can tune in. But here’s the kicker: Dish TV is now offering same-day or next-day installation with a new subscription, which means you could be watching your new TV or streaming service that very same day after signing up. How awesome is that? No more waiting for the install guy or missing out on your favorite shows. Dish TV also offers a 2-year price guarantee, which means you will never see a price hike during that time, regardless of the current market prices. Now’s the perfect time to lock in a low cost for Dish TV with excellent offers. Starting at $85 per month for America’s Top 120, you get local channels and all your favorites like ESPN, Disney Channel, and E!. You’ll also get access to over 28,000 on-demand titles for streaming. Why not go check it out?

Why Dish TV versus cable, and why now?

With so many streaming options, cable, and other media providers available, the prevailing question is, why go with something like Dish TV? The proof is in the pudding, or so they say. In this case, the pudding includes a wide variety of desirable features like automatically skipping commercials for primetime shows, free same-day or next-day installation, a signal reliability guarantee, and free universal voice search accessible via your remote (included). Imagine turning your Dish TV into a language-learning tool. But that’s just what’s included in the first spoonful of pudding.

Dish TV has the edge in nearly all facets of the business, including value for its customers, innovative technology, and top-notch service. Nationwide availability means you can get Dish Network’s satellite TV service virtually anywhere in the U.S., including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The signal reliability guarantee says you’ll enjoy up to 99% signal uptimes and reliability, or you can get your money back.

And if you need more reason to pick Dish TV over any others, here are some additional features:

  • Record up to 16 shows at once with DVR for a total of 2,000 hours of storage space
  • Watch up to four shows on one screen
  • Whole home entertainment to watch recordings and TV in any room of your house
  • Free voice remote with universal search and a built-in remote finder
  • Wireless receivers are optionally available
  • Stream live TV via the mobile app on up to five devices with a single subscription
  • All of the sports you want to watch available live and streaming
  • Gain access to over 80,000 on-demand shows and movies

If you’re anything like me, it’s that same-day or next-day installation that has you excited.

What comes with Dish TV’s free standard installation?

You’re probably thinking there are a lot of tricks or add-ons to your average Dish installation. After all, most service providers do that — like charging you extra for an in-home router or cable box. That’s not the case here.

First, a Dish TV professional will survey your property to determine the best placement for the satellite dish. Then, they’ll assemble and mount the dish. The service rep will install Dish receivers at every television your subscription includes. Finally, they’ll program the remotes, download updates to the Hopper or Dish receivers, and walk you through using the equipment, including answering any questions. Dish even offers additional smart home services for an added fee, so technicians will help with mounting new TVs, setting up a wireless network, installing a home theater system, and much more.

All of the above, with next-day service at the latest, show that Dish TV goes above and beyond the competition, especially cable and streaming providers. Now, I have to ask, what are you waiting for? Dish TV offers some incredible services that you won’t find anywhere else.

Why you should buy the BLUETTI AC240 all-weather portable power station

Imagine for a moment that you're camping with your family, hiking through the great outdoors, or even taking a long, scenic road trip through the countryside. In all of these situations, even when you're off-grid, you'll still need reliable access to power to charge your phone and tablet(s) and power up other electronics -- like a coffee maker when you wake up in the morning. Of course, power stations and power outlets don't exist randomly out in the wild. You could use your vehicle, but that will drain the battery and, in some cases, still won't provide enough power for what you want to do. Cue the BLUETTI AC240 portable power station and devices like it.

This mini PC, and I do mean mini, has a Ryzen 7000 tucked inside for $200 off
Geekom A7 Mini PC with AMD Ryzen 7 for gaming showcased.

Computing, or small computing, has come a long way in recent years. Thanks to renewed interest in more manageable desktop sizes, even for PC gaming, we've seen a boon in the small PC world, namely with small form factor PCs (SFFPCs). For good reason, people are more interested in systems that take up less space, are more efficient, especially with energy usage, and can be placed in new areas, like their living rooms. There is now a whole category of small and mini PCs, and although they are bite-sized, they still pack a punch. Take Geekom's A7 Mini PC, which has an AMD Ryzen 7000 series tucked inside. That's no slouch on its own, but it also has 64GB of DDR5 RAM, WiFi 6E, and AMD Radeon graphics that supports up to four displays. All of that is packed inside an ultra-slim, space-saving case about the size of a book. Incredible. The top-tier model is currently $200 off, down to $649 instead of $849, when you use code digitaltrendsa7 at checkout. That code is valid in the US and the UK.
