The Low Down

DIRECTV

DIRECTV is the oldest satellite TV company. DIRECTV has over 19 million subscribers, more than any other satellite industry.

Pros: Local channels are included in every package (DISH charges so their pricing comparison can be misleading). DIRECTV has the most sports in HD. DIRECTV has exclusive sports packages that include NFL SUNDAY TICKET™, and NASCAR HOTPASS™.. Bottom Line: If you're a sports nut, get DIRECTV!

DISH

DISH is the fastest growing satellite television provider with over 14 million subscribers.

Pros: First and foremost, DISH has cheaper plans. I think this accounts for the growth. Packages are pretty similar, but DISH offers a basic plan that is about $10/mo. cheaper than DIRECTV's cheapest plan. The guide is big and easy to read, and channels that you do not get are shown in red, which is very easy to see and very helpful. You can have 4 or 5 different favorite lists for different family members.

Customer Satisfaction

Customer Satisfaction Overview

Both companies boast JD Power awards for customer satisfaction. You will quickly see from reviews that both companies make mistakes on occasion that can really fire up some customers.

In my experience with both companies, they tend to treat new customers better than existing customers by offering discounts and new equipment. Therefore, I feel no loyalty and generally switch at the end of my two year contract in order to get promotional discounts and the latest equipment technology.

DIRECTV

For over a decade, DIRECTV scored higher in customer satisfaction than cable companies measured in the American Customer Satisfaction Index.* More than half of our employees primarily work to deliver the highest level of service to our customers, whether they call, work with one of our installers or manage their accounts online at directv.com. We want our customers to rely on us to meet their needs effectively and professionally.

*Source: Among the largest national cable & satellite TV providers. 2010 American Customer Satisfaction Index.

DISH

From their website:

May 18, 2010 - DISH, America's fastest-growing pay-TV provider, is now No. 1 in customer satisfaction among satellite and cable companies, according to the 2010 American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) survey results for the U.S. largest cable and satellite TV providers. The claim excludes fiber optic carriers.

In this year's survey, DISH scored a 71 for customer satisfaction - a significant seven-point increase from 2009 and well above the 2010 pay-TV industry average of 66. DISH scored three points higher than DIRECTV, four points higher than Cox, 10 points higher than Comcast and Time Warner, and 11 points higher than Charter. Phone companies Verizon and AT&T rated highest in the category with scores of 73 and 72, respectively.
