If you are considering Dish Network for you pay television provider, no doubt you want to be sure they have all of the channels you want. Dish Network offers four primary packages, ranging in price from $40 a month up to $100 a month when you look at the regular prices. Other charges for additional receivers and DVR units also must be factored in. So are your favorite channels in your Dish Network package? Here are a few DISH Network channel guides to help you find what is included in each bundle.
The official Dish Network channel guide can be found at the Dish website. Here you will need to select your Dish package and zip code for a custom channel guide. There are also links here to download printable channel guides for standard and HD content. In addition, Dish TV PDF channel lineups for the DishLatino packages and SIRIUS 24 hour music channels can be found here:
Another good source for finding your favorite Dish Network channels is on the US Dish
site. They are an authorized Dish Network retailer where you can find a good comparison of each Dish Network package (America’s Top 120
, Top 200
, Top 250
and America’s Everything) and the channels that are included. You can also sort the lineup by the channel type – such as movie, sports, news, family and entertainment. The only downside of this Dish channel guide lineup is that you have to click on the channel name to find the exact channel number.
Probably the most extensive resource for the Dish Network channel lineup can be found on Wikipedia. Here channels are listed numerically so it is a good resource if you have Dish Network and are looking to identify a specific channel. Here you can easily identify where specific international programs are located as well as Dish Network Adult programming like Playboy TV. Wikipedia also provides hundreds of links by each channel name so that you can go to the Wiki page on what each network is about if you need more information.
Finally, if you you already have Dish Network you can always use a couple of easy resources at your fingertips. One option is to tune to channel 117 which is the TV Guide Network. This channel scrolls through all of the available channels showing what is currently on at the time. Another option is to simply hit the “Guide” button on your remote control. This will bring up an on screen programming guide which you can scroll through to find out what is on. Pushing the “Info” button from this guide will give you detail on that particular program.
