The Dish Network Basic Programming package is primarily designed for those who have limited TV viewing, are not interested in specific channels, and do not want to pay too much money initially. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to get many of the sports channels or any of the premium movie or PPV Channels.
Ideal for: Those who just want basic channels, not willing to pay too much money, and who do not want any of the frills included.
Not good for: Those looking for sports, those who like watching movies without commercials, and those who want a lot of channels.
