There are two main satellite television services. These are DirecTV and Dish Network. DirecTV has a lot more subscribers and advertising going for them. They're actually owned by Hughes Electronics. Both services offer different programming packages, so you'll easily find one that you like.

DirecTV vs Dish Network

DirecTV offers more overall stations than Dish Network. Both services also offer different sports packages. DirecTV offers football, baseball, hockey, and more Americanized sports. Dish Network offers sports like lacrosse, and English premier league soccer.

Dish Network also offers international programming. DirecTV doesn't offer any foreign networks. So if you've just moved to the United States and you're missing the programming from your previous country, Dish Network is perfect for you.

Both services are offered everywhere in the United States. This means you don't have to have access to any kind of cable hookup. So if you live in a very rural area where they don't offer cable, then satellite is pretty much you're only option. Now you can also get high speed internet through DirecTV, as well.
