Dish Network vs. Directv???

I just finished my two year contract with dish and I am wanting to get dish to lower my rates or switch to directv and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what they think?

Personally I love directtv and will never switch. However, seeing as you already have dish, you can get a better deal with them. Heres how:
1) research directtv (their #1 competition). Find the BEST package and bonuses they are offerring. Like 3 months free showtime, ect, get first 6 months at a lower rate, free dvr, whatever they are offerring at this time that you want at a lower price with all bonus offers they have.
2) have all that info ready and call dish's cancellation line and when you are talking to the person say exactly this:
"i would like to cancel my service" Politely and sweet but matter of fact like you have made up your mind.
they will ask "may i ask why?"
Say "Well....I am having some financial difficulties and I want to switch to direct tv because they have some really good deals going on right now and I need to save some money."
KNOW your stuff...they will pull up directtvs current offers. Their priority is to keep you as a customer and not lose you to the competition.
They will ask what directtv is offering. Tell them. They will give it all to you and possibly more. Sound surprised: "wow you can do that? Thank you so much!!!"

I do this approximately every 6 months. We have the premium packagewith HD channels and receiver on 2 tvs, Showtime, HBO ect and pay $76/mo after taxes

I have directv for 3.5 yrs now and I love it. I have had movie channels now for 3 yrs at NO CHARGE, I just call and ask if they are running any specials and they give me the channels free for 6 months. After that I call back and they do it again.
***If you decide to join DirecTv PLEASE let me know, I will give you my acct # and we can both get a additional $10 off each month.
Another great way to save!!

Having all that stuff makes them want to keep you more. I have had directtv for 10 years and never pay for the extras. The last time I told them i was going to cancel, not only did they give me all my premium channels free for 3 MORE months, but they waived my HD channels, dvr and hd receiver fees, and cut my monthly rate down by half for an entire YEAR. And I was even still in contract with them. I promise it works! The more you compliment the competition, the more they want you to stay!
