DISH vs Time Warner
On average, you’ll pay $660 dollars more for Time Warner cable than for DISH in your first two years. And with DISH, you get more features for your money, including premium channels, Encore, EpicTV, FOX Movie Channel, ESPN, FOX Sports and Movieplex.
On price and value, DISH is the clear choice.
Superior Convenience and Storage
DISH also offers double the storage and double the tuners. You can watch/record up to 16 programs and once, and store up to 500 hours of HD storage for recordings. This beats anything Time Warner or DirectTV have to offer.
If you want the best convenience for your money, and the ability to watch shows on any device at any time, then go with DISH. Once you do, you’ll never regret it.
