About DISH Network for Business

DISH Network’s Business TV Packages gives business owners the opportunity to build the package they want without having to take hundreds of unwanted channels. DISH Network is the only Commercial Television Provider to offer this type of option to commercial businesses. Many business owners believe DISH Network adds value to the business by offering a variety of choice and an everyday low price.

Most commercial cable providers force you to take hundreds of channels you don’t need. With DISH, it begins with the Starter Pack. This package includes your local stations and a variety of public interest channels. The Starter Pack is the prerequisite for public and private commercial accounts. The Starter Pack must be accompanied by at least one add-on package. There are several packages to choose from including Sports, News, Entertainment, Movies, Kids, Lifestyle, Variety, Music and Much More.

Unlike residential, commercial programming is offered based upon your place of business. Each business will fall under one of the following categories: Private, Public, Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU), Free to Guest (FTG), Lodging and Institutions.

Let’s review what types of businesses fall under each category. Most businesses fall into the private or public category. Here’s how these categories are defined.

Public Locations – A place of business where its main source of revenue is from the sale of food and/or alcohol to the general public for immediate consumption examples include: Bars, Restaurants, Public Golf Courses, Arenas and Sports Venues.

Private Locations – A place of business that doesn’t serve food and/or alcohol that views their television in a private area in the business examples include: Private Offices, Retail Shops, Gyms, Private Golf Courses and Lobby Areas.

If your business doesn’t fall into Public or Private, it could be classified as a Bulk Property.

Bulk Properties are classified into two categories (MDU) Multiple Dwelling Units and (FTG) Free to Guest.

MDU Locations – A place of business where separate housing developments are built into one building or several buildings across the complex. Examples include: Apartment Complexes, Dorm Rooms, Condominiums, or other Co-housing Projects

Free to Guest Locations – A place of business where the company charges for lodging services that include television service as one of their amenities which include Hospitals, Hotels, Motels, Assisted Living or any Nursing or Healthcare Facilities.

DISH Network turns the satellite television into an entertainment powerhouse by offering programming that customers may have at their home. When you bring the comfort of home to a business, customers don’t mind waiting a few extra minutes. The fact is that perceived wait times are less and therefore keep the customer pre-occupied. DISH Network helps change the way owners do business by offering choice and value. These are two very important factors when choosing a business TV provider.
