Satellite TV Dealers

Aug 17, 2007
Satellite TV is nowadays a growing business with millions of subscribers worldwide. What used to be a luxury only for the rich and famous just a few years ago is no an affordable option for almost anyone. The growth rate of satellite TV has beaten cable TV in many countries and there are many satellite TV dealers providing these services. However, as with any other hot product, there are a lot of scammers as well.

Ordering Online

There are many satellite TV dealers who sell there products online as well. After you place your order with an online satellite TV dealer, you have to choose the number of satellite systems you want to receive. Online dealers usually offer up to 4 free systems often along with an incentive gift as well, such as a DVD player or a home theater system.

After you've completed your order, you will schedule the time when a professional installer will come to your house. The satellite system can be shipped to you in advance or be brought in by the installer. You usually don't have to decide on the programming right away. You can call a toll-free number after the installation and talk to a customer service representative to activate the programming you'd like.

Internet Scams

Unfortunately, as with any other product you purchase on the Internet, there is a risk to get scammed. Many of the online satellite TV dealers out there are actually scammers. They claim to offer the best satellite deals for a very small subscription fee with next-day installation and sometimes unlimited number of free satellite system as part of a promotion.

However, after you sign up you will discover hidden activation fees, installation dates permanently postponed, high shipping costs or enormous cancellation fees. There might be more scammers out there than actual satellite TV dealers, so beware not to fall into their traps.

Choosing the Right Satellite TV Dealer

In the United States there are two main satellite TV providers: Dish Network and DirecTV. They both have several reputable dealers assigned and you are recommended to order your systems from one of them.

- Here is a checklist of the minimum requirements a satellite TV dealer should meet:
- Be in business for at least one year
- Have a certified website, as well as provide a secure order page
- Be authorized by a satellite provider's officials
- Have no "hidden" costs (the cost charged on credit card should be shown clearly)
- Provide a customer support service by phone, email or live chats
- Have a 100% money-back guarantee and refund your money if the installation fails
- Being able to provide testimonials from customers, user reviews or being recommended by an authority website is always a plus.

A satellite TV deal can be either an incredible bargain or a dreadful nightmare, depending on the satellite TV dealer you choose. Ordering your satellite systems from a reliable company can save you a lot of money and headaches, as well as provide you with the quality you are expecting.
