Entertain Your Customers with DISH for Business

Last updated on April 20th, 2015 by George Levint

If you’re a business owner or manager and have a steady stream of customers, satellite TV is a great, time-tested way to keep them entertained while they eat, drink or wait for a service. Traditionally, DISH has offered some of the more competitive business TV plans in the industry… lately, they’ve gotten even more affordable and that’s led to a sharp increase in TV installs at mom-n-pops and national chains alike.

Before we get into the details, it’s important you understand how DISH categorizes “public” and “private” businesses (they’re priced differently). “Public” businesses are those that either charge for admission (e.g., nightclubs) or sell food/drinks for immediate consumption (restaurants, bars, etc). “Private” businesses include those that serve the public but don’t charge admission or rely on food/drinks for the bulk of their revenue (car shops, waiting rooms, professional offices, etc). If your business doesn’t neatly fit into either category, just explain your business model to your customer service rep and they’ll match you to the most affordable plan available.

OK, now that the basics are covered let’s jump into the details. In general, DISH’s business packages mirror their consumer counterparts, but slightly differ in price and add-ons available. In the table below, we compare the most popular commercial plans along with their current costs and features (remember, specials come and go, so be sure to ask if there are better rates available)…
