Find out which DISH bundle is best for you and your family
Best DISH Bundles
If you need both TV and internet for your home, DISH's bundles are an excellent option.
You can get at least 190 channels and up to 940 Mbps, so you won't have to worry about lagging internet while you're on a Zoom call with your boss.
We like bundling because it's so convenient. You can order from just one provider, you only have to worry about one bill, and you'll get a better deal than if you were to order the services separately.
Alright, let's get into the details and find the best bundle for you and your family.
Steps to finding the right bundle for you
DISH doesn't have bundle plans already created for you to put in your cart. Instead, you get to choose which TV plan you want through Viasat.
Since DISH doesn't have pre-created bundles for you to choose from, we'll guide you through the steps to find the right bundle for you and your needs.
Step one is considering how many channels your family wants and how many Mbps of internet you all need.
Do you just want basic channels? Or would you like premium channels in your lineup?
Do you or your family members work from home, and do you all stream from seperate devices at the same time? Or do you live solo, and you might not need that many Mbps for your internet connection?
Steps two and three are picking a TV package and an internet plan that fits your specific needs. We're going to go over more details on the channel lineups and internet connection options to help you make that decision.
Step four is calling DISH. We know it's often easier to just simply order a product online, but talking to a representative on the phone will be well worth it.
When you call to order, you're more likely to get a better deal as they will find internet quotes for you. They'll also be able to tell you which internet providers are in your area. You'll get your new service ordered within that phone call, and it will be easier than you think (1-877-357-2664).

Which DISH TV package should I get?
In our DISH review, we recommend DISH's America's Top 200. We like this plan because it gives you most, if not all, of the popular sports, entertainment, lifestyle, and kids' channels. You'll get access to Cooking Channel, Hallmark Channel, MLB Network, NBA TV, Nick Jr., and Univision.
DISH'S America's Top 120 plan gives you the basic, popular channels like the Disney Channel, HGTV, and ESPN. America's Top 120 Plus offers at least 9 more sports channels than the entry-level plan, like FS2, NFL Network, and the PaC-12 Network, making it an ideal choice for football fans who still want to catch up on this season of Master Chef. Get America's Top 200 package if you want MLB Network, CBS Sports Network, and college sports networks.
You'll want America's Top 250 to watch MGM+ Drive-In, The Movie Channel, Universo, and STARZ channels.

Which internet plan should I get?
DISH gives you three internet connection types to choose from (depending on where you live in the US).
To give a little perspective, each device needs three Mbps to stream Netflix or YouTube TV.
If you're like us, you're working from home, and we recommend a minimum of 50 to 100 Mbps download speeds for working or schooling from home (per person).
The Viasat satellite internet service is available anywhere in the US. And this service gives you unlimited data.
