Hey, that link is for DirecTV. We are talking about Dish here! Yeah, easy to confuse the two names.

Dish just dropped KBS so I recently did research on international programming requirements for both Dish and DirecTV. Posted some tips for other consumers based on my experience.

Both companies have cheaper base packages than standard advertised base packages that you can get for the base package requirement in order to get international programming. But they are either unadvertised or they try to steer you away and get the standard (i.e more expensive) base package. Tricky! My advice is to request by NAME and be firm.
