Frequently Asked Questions
The best part about the Digital Home Advantage is that DISH Network owns the equipment. That's how we can offer you up to a 6 room hookup including professional standard installation for free. Digital Home Advantage does require a 24 month commitment to qualifying programming.
Your annual commitment can be as low as the America's Top 120. Remember that you must call DISH Network directly for any downgrades and/or changes of service. DISH Network does charge a $5 downgrade fee per phone call where changes in programming are made. Deletions of adult programming incur a higher fee and are determined by the programmers.

DISH Network offers Adult Guard so that if you choose to subscribe to adult programming, it doesn't have to appear as a programming option until you are ready to view it.
In August 1996, the FCC released the "Satellite Consumer Bill of Rights." This prohibits area zoning ordinances and Homeowner Association contracts and restrictions on DBS dish antennas. The 1996 Telecommunications Act is on your side in this matter. Our dishes, sizes 18" and 20" comply with the Satellite Consumer Bill of Rights.
Dolby Surround and Dolby Digital differ in two ways. Dolby Surround has only 4 channels; Left, Right, Center and Rear; whereas, Dolby Digital has 5.1 channels; Left, Right, Center, Right Surround, Left Surround, and Low Frequency Effects. Dolby Digital gives you a more realistic sound profile as compared to Dolby Surround.
