Competitive Analysis


Great value in TV service isn’t just about the price of a programming package. It’s about the total cost and quality of the service you pay for every month. DISH delivers better value than DIRECTV and cable in every area, from price and programming to technology and customer service.


Product available for outdoor segments.
HD with all mobile satellite antennas.
Portable automatic HD antennas.
Lowest-priced HD automatic DISH = $350 for Tailgater / DIRECTV =$699 (SD only)



• DISH’s America’s Top 120 and America’s Top 200 packages promotional price is less than DIRECTV’s 150-channel Choice package.

• A great TV experience starts with the best quality picture and sound. Plus, with DISH, HD is free for 24 months (with 24 month Agreement, AutoPay and Paperless Billing).

• Meanwhile, DIRECTV’s version of “free HD” doesn’t extend to existing subscribers. With that kind of loyalty rewards program it’s not hard to figure out why their customer satisfaction ratings are taking a beating.

• Nothing is better in HD than sports, from hometown hoops to international soccer, DISH delivers.


• DISH is the undisputed leader in satellite equipment design and technology, with the most award-winning HD DVRs in the industry.

• Weighing in at a mere ten pounds, the DISH Tailgater is the smallest portable satellite dish in the industry and is extremely easy to use. No manual adjustment is ever needed for the DISH Tailgater because it automatically locates satellite positions and easily connects to a small DISH receiver and to your TV. The DISH Tailgater was recognized by a panel of experts in the field of technology design and engineering at the Innovations Design and Engineering Awards show in Las Vegas.



Is it true there is no commitment and no activation, disconnect, or restart fees?

Yes, you select the FlexTV plan, there is no commitment required and no disconnect or restart fees. A FlexTV Activation Fee may be charged. When you are no longer using your service you can simply stop paying your monthly bill.

When is the first payment due?

Payment for the first month’s programming is due at the time of activation.

I’m only going to be on vacation for two weeks. Can I pay for a partial month of service?

No. All payments are for 30-days of service at a time.

Can I watch HD while my vehicle is in motion?

Yes, while the Tailgater and Pathway X2 do not support in-motion viewing, some DISH-compatible mobile satellite antennas offer this feature. You can watch HD programming while the vehicle is moving if equipped with a compatible auto-tracking portable antenna. DISH is the only affordable option for in-motion HD.

I have three TVs in my RV. Can I connect all of them?

Yes, you can purchase three HD SOLO receivers to activate in their RV. However, this requires an antenna that can support three receivers.  Call Alpha Home Systems to get setup with the right antenna.

Can I have a DVR?

Yes. You can add DVR service by connecting a USB 2.0 external hard drive to your Solo HD Receiver. A one-time $40 activation fee applies and there are no additional monthly fees. The external hard drive must be between 50 GB minimum and 1 TB maximum and have its own power supply.

Can I get local channels when I travel?

Yes, local networks are available in your home market. Your home market is determined based on your service address. When traveling outside of your home market, you can use an over-the-air (OTA) antenna to view local stations in that area. DISH’s receiver technology will even allow you to import local stations into your programming guide. (If using the ViP 211z model, the USB Digital OTA Dongle is required and sold separately.)

Is installation included?

Yes. Ask a Alpha Home Systems representative for information about installation and equipment costs.

I already have DISH at home. How can I enjoy it in my RV?

You can simply purchase and add a 211k receiver to your existing residential account for $7 per month.

What if I don’t want a 2-year contract?

Solution: Pay-As-You-Go TV (the FlexTV plan) does not require a contract.

What if I only use my RV a few months out of the year and don’t want to pay for it all year?

Solution: With Pay-As-You-Go TV, you only pay for the months you use and there are no fees to start or stop the service. This makes sense and saves you money.

What if I only want HD?

Solution: Great news! All mobile satellite antennas support HD viewing with DISH, and they are priced lower than other products in the market.

What if I don’t have DISH at home, can I still sign up?

Solution: Absolutely! You can still have DISH for your RV and enjoy a no-contract account.

What if I want to be able to watch the local channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX)?

Solution: Sure, it’s great to know what’s going on locally. You can use an over-the-air (OTA) antenna to view free, over-the-air local channels wherever they travel. These include ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, etc. The 411, ViP 211, and 211k receiver models already have an over-the-air tuner built-in, so you can connect an over-theair antenna directly to the back of the receiver. The ViP 211z receiver model requires the DISH USB Digital OTA Dongle in order to connect an over-the-air antenna into the USB port.

What if I only want one bill for my home and my RV?

Solution: I am glad you brought that up. We can provide your home service and your RV service under one bill.

What if I already have DISH at home. Can I use it in my RV?

Solution: Absolutely! You’ll need to purchase and add a Solo HD receiver (ViP 211) to your existing account at a cost of just $7 per month.

Why do I need pay for a receiver? Why can’t I just use my receiver from home?

Solution: Well, if you have a Solo HD receiver (411, ViP 211, ViP 211k, ViP 211z) at home, you are free to use it in your RV. here is no additional cost or purchase necessary, unless you need a mobile satellite antenna.

I like to record. Can I bring the DVR with me?

Solution: We don’t recommend taking your DVR on the road. You run the risk of damaging the hard drive. Additionally, most DVRs do not work best with mobile satellite antennas. Alpha Home Systems recommends that you purchase the Solo HD receiver for your RV. If you add an external hard drive for a one-time fee of $40, you will enjoy DVR service at its best on the road.

What if I already have a Solo HD receiver at home, can I connect it in my RV?

Solution: In order to view satellite TV in your RV, a DISH compatible mobile satellite antenna and a DISH receiver are required.
