    Ok Heres the Advatage Dish Has and Direct TV doesnt.
    Total Choice Plus 150 channels =$42.99
    Americas Top 180 180 channels=$44.99
    You get a lot more with americas 180 than total choice plus.
    If you want HBO & MAX on Direct Tv W/Total Choice Plus its 69.00
    If You want HBO & MAX on dish its called Home advantage americas 180 is only 66.99!Advantage Dish
    Direct Tv doesnt give you TMC & Encore included total choice plus.

    Are you taking locals into account or not? You’re comparing AT180 without locals and TC Plus with them.

    America's Top 180 $44.99
    Total Choice Plus $39.99
    ---Difference $5

    America's Top 180 w/Locals $49.99
    Total Choice Plus w/Locals $42.99
    ---Difference $7

    I'd rather save $7 and not have the Encores or TMC, which I maybe watched 3 movies on them in the past 4 years.

    I second that. Not to mention, how many of those 180 channels are shopping / PI channels?

    Since you asked ... read the sig.

    BTW: Some of the shopping / PI channels are also on DirecTV.
    DirecTV also has their own set of shopping / PIs and other "garbage".

    It isn't about the number of channels, it it about having the channels that serve the individual. We could all pick channels that E* or D* has that the other doesn't. And we can stake our reputations, nay even waste our lives saying one is better than the other. To each their own.

    In this case it si more for more money. And since the thread is about the AEP what are we talking about AT 180 anyway?

    Maybe more music and shopping channels. Plus, don't you need 2 dishes to get all 180 channels?

    No, one Dish 500 (included in all systems sold for last several years) is all you need for AT180 and all core channels. The only E* programing on the wing satellites requiring a 2nd dish if you want both core and a specialty channel(s) are the following; internationals, Sky Angel, CBS-HD East and West, some fringe locals in 38 out of approximately 120 dma's.

    Only 51 of the 180+ channels in AT180, are DishCD(32) and DishAudio(19) audio only music channels, which still leaves over 130 TV channels. 36 of the approximately 150 channels in the TC+ are Music Choice audio only channels which leave only 115 TV channels. Sometime next week I believe that E* will be turning on the 61 Sirius music radio channels for AT120/180/EP subs which will bring AT180's over all total to over 240 channels if you want to get picky.

    But why do I even bother explaining to you Curtis0620, because when it comes to D* you are just as bad as Steveox at exaggerating D* advantages as he is at exaggerating E* advantages. The truth as already been stated many times is that each provider has its advantages and it depends on which meets the need of a particular individual, each of are needs and wants for TV are different.

    I don't care about how many dishes are involved, personally. I care about the programming available, and the price one has to pay to receive that programming. I don't personally need all of the programming, but I would like some premium content, and I don't want to have to pay $100/month to receive it. While I believe that Dish Network does their best to keep the prices reasonable, I still feel like we're getting nickel and dimed, without having an "all inclusive" package available that helps reduce the price.

    There should be able to be some sort of "AEP equivalent" where they also waive the VOD fee once your total bill (programming + receivers + whatever else) reaches a certain point, e.g. $75/month or more.

    I do not know where that came from, I have always said that each provider had advantages and disadvantages. Even though I have always had E* I have considered switching to D* in the past, and I might someday but I may not. Yes in the distant past I may have done a little E* palm palm waving but the last few years I have simply pointed out where E* had some advantages, but I have also done the same with D*. Just because I have pointed out some of your incorrect statements of fact in the past regarding E* does not mean I am the pot calling the kettle black. :)
