    Just casually browsing around on the Dish website, I noticed that the DishAmerica (former Turbo HD) packages are absent from the website. However, they are still available in MyDish.

    Is Dish phasing them out? They were pretty affordable if you just wanted some major HD channels.

    They are no longer available to new subscribers with a discount. I'm guessing to avoid confusion that's why are only listed to current subscribers.

    tampa8 is correct. The DISH America packages are no longer available with a new customer discount, however they are still available to be added to an account at the normal monthly rate.

    Hi Raymond,

    Is there anywhere we can check what channels are available on the Dish America program? I am trying to make comparison against the Dish America Silver plan on trying to see what additional channels I get.

    Thanks,

    I do not think that Sirius XM or Dish CD channels are included; I noticed a few slight errors like Epix Drive-In being HD only for example.

    Thanks Mojo.

    Do you know if I can add the multisports package on the Dish America package? I was thinking of adding it once the football season started. I dont really need the extra channels on Dish Silver or Dish Gold.

    You cannot. Minimum for RSNets and MSP is Silver or At120+.

    thanks Coldsteel. I had a feeling this was too good to be true. I'll just downgrade to 120+

    Another option is Dish Latino Dos ($44.99/mo). However, the channel selection differs from the America's Top packages.
