Dish tv ....what is your experience?
Currently I have Innovative. The signal is so poor and service has been out for days that I would like to switch to dish.
Does Dish work and is it worth the money?
I have had Dish for several years both here and in the states.
Recently Dish has been reducing the number of HD channels we receive here on STX.
We still pay the same price for the package even though the HD channels are not in that package.
If I could find a service to compete with Dish I would change, but sadly we are at their mercy here in the Caribbean.
That being said there are few outages or interruptions and tech service in readily available.
I have been a DISH customer for several years. I have been extremely satisfied with the service and reliability. My local technician, Paradise Satellite, gives tremendous customer service. Although I also have a Roku streaming box which is great for some things, for everyday TV programming, DISH can't be beat.
If you sign up through Paradise Satellite you are dealing with a local Dish representative that has been doing Dish on STX for over 14 years. 340-718-2488... The 800# is just that. You'll be talking to a rep in the states reading off a computer screen.
Glad you are happy Lily!!!!

WE HAVE HAD DISH FOR 1 YEAR. imo it is better than innovative was at that time ( before evo )
with innovative we would loose stations, call, they would be fixed for less than a day and back out again. they just could not seem to fix the problem. even at work stations just go out for no apparent reason.
the only time we loose dish is during heavy down pours. like someone else said, just watch something you have on your dvr.
price wise i think they are both about the same once the special prices are gone. but i am glad to have dish as an option
i would choose dish over innovative any day of the week
I was probably one of the first to get DISH here donkey's years ago and was extremely happy for many years. However, a VERY prolonged and excruciatingly frustrating experience with customer service over ever-increasing monthly bills for which there seemed no explanation finally led me to Innovative. I'd avoided Innovative cable for years because of all the problems others had encountered but the EVO system and price deserved a look so off I went to see what they could do for me.
It's been I think two years now since I made the switch and I couldn't be happier. NO problem at all and the total cost of the bundle package (I already had landline and internet with them) is less than my DISH bill alone. No ugly dish attached to the building, no instant outages in a downpour, excellent service all around - and I have all the programming I had with DISH.
I wish the people who keep harping on about the "old" Innovative system would belt up - the EVO system is excellent.
