For those that had both, who is the best satellite provider between the two? With the problems that directv is having with the b10 network it has caused me to look around.
I know directv has exclusive rights for the Sunday ticket but what about everything else? How do they compare with the DVR, mobile application, etc? Can I record and watch my Dvr in multiple rooms?
I figured I would start this thread because others may be looking to leave Dish if they don't pick up the b10 network.

Have had DirecTV for 16 years now, and have always loved it. It is DISH that is having BTN problems, not DirecTV.
If you are an NFL fan - which is why I got it mostly, there is no other choice.
Their mobile app is great, and I can watch shows on mt phone now also.
The newest DVR is great. 1TB of storage, records 5 shows at once, also has Picture in Picture.
Direct TV hands down is the best
I agree. I have the same package as the previous poster and it's awesome. Attuverse is good too.
Direct TV hands down... the only downside is that there rates seem to climb faster than their competitors. They have offered Sunday ticket at zero additional cost to new subscribers the last few years which is a huge savings, so thats obviously a bonus.
Can you watch your dvr recordings in multiple rooms?
I have had both, I have Dtv now, seldom has weather problems even when I was in Forida and in hurricanes, I also found that while dish had better equipment for gadgets and storage it tended to overheat
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
Had both! Direct TV by far! Love it. I have had it for over 5 years!
Yeah I think its called whole home or something like that. If you switch a for the moon because they are very flexible and aggressive especially with new customers

i started with Dish like 17 years ago kept them until the mid 2000's. I had them in NY, WA, & GA. Switched to Direct and had them for a couple years, after I switched Dish tried like crazy to convince me to come back. Decided to switch back to Dish b/c my phone/internet company had a deal with Dish. I wish I had stayed with Direct as their On Demand had a ton of free movies and seemed better. Dish was fine to watch the Bucks and has multiple BTN games on at the same time, so I never missed a game. Switched back to Direct b/c I liked the new DVR, but I've had issues with On Demand not recording properly. So the jury is out, but if Direct carries multiple BTN games I'm sure I'll be happy.
Directv is the way to go. Whole home dvr, more hd channels and quality customer service.
On top of everything else mentioned above, dish no longer has AMC which has some of the better shows on TV right now (Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Hell On Wheels)
I've had both. It's not even close. DirecTV!
Directv for sure!!!
GO PACK GO!!!!!
Go Brew Crew!!!!
How do the mobile app work when it comes to watching and recording tv? Can you watch your dvr recordings through iPhone or iPad?
never had dish network. I've been a Dtv subscriber for about 7 years. Its the best I've had.
I've been told that Dish is just the poor man's version of direct TV. Its cheaper but you get less.

Directv is a viable option..However my concern are weather related issues with Directv especially the loss of signal during the heaviest of storms..Are my concerns still justified

I've had Dish for years and love it. It's a boatload cheaper.
My advice would be to compare the package channel lists, decide which you'll watch most and then shop price based on that. In the end, the content is the same. It's just the packaging of channels and pricing that differs.
That said, I will be pissed if I miss the game Saturday due to a Dish/BTN squabble. However, it's just as likely to be DirecTV having the squabble next time.
