I've had DISH Network for years and they've never let me down. Contrary to what cable drones will tell you, my signal is 99% reliable. Actually, I have found it is more reliable than both Charter and U-verse.

HD picture quality is a LOT better than U-verse, and a bit better than Charter. DISH has almost just as many HD channels as U-verse, and WAY more than Charter.

Their pricing is great, promotional prices are great, and they give out tons of free premium channels. So far I have gotten nearly a year of free HD Platinum (premium HD tier,) a year of free Starz, 3 months free HBO/Showtime, 1 month free Cinemax, plus, they give free previews every month of tons of great channels.

I also LOVE their external hard drive functionality. I have well over 1200 recordings on them and that alone will keep me with DISH for many years to come. I love how I can just use my spare HDDs (ones I take out of my PC as I upgrade them) to store tons of TV shows and movies.

I have AT250 plus premiums and free HD for life, but I have set a couple of other people up with DISH Family, costs them as low as $20 per month. It's typically around $25 per month.

My only complaint, is RECEIVER FEES. They're a little ridiculous, but, it's still overall cheaper for me than U-verse, Charter & DirecTV.
