Learn the answers to three most common questions about free Dish Network satellite TV offers:
What exactly do I get for free, and what do I have to pay for?
You get all the equipment you need – a satellite TV dish, up to four satellite TV receivers, and next-day installation in up to four rooms, for free. Digital Video Recorder (DVR) equipment is free in the first two rooms. However, to get all this, and the lifetime warranty, you have to make an 18-month commitment as a subscriber to Dish Network programming. This means that you only pay for programming, not for the equipment. It is possible not to make an 18 month commitment at all. Also, there’s an activation fee you’ll have to pay when you sign up, it is about $50, but this fee will be refunded on your first bill. DVR monthly fees are low, about $6.
