To provide the great shows and movies our customers love, we pay programmers who own that content.
The price that we pay those programmers continues to rise. In fact, the fastest growing cost we have as a company is related to the cost we pay the programmers, including the local channels (ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC). We work hard for fair deals with these programmers to keep the channel costs and the price you pay as low as possible.
DISH and all other pay TV providers have had to accept significant price increases from these programmers to continue providing great content. DISH is absorbing some of the overall cost increase, rather than passing everything on to our customers.
Our top priority is to provide you with the best TV experience possible at the best value. We also firmly believe in being honest and transparent about changes when they happen.
To give you visibility to the changes that are occurring and the effects of the rising costs, we’ve outlined our 2019 prices below.
