Which DISH channel lineup is best?
Of all DISH channel lineups, we most recommend America’s Top 200. It’s a superior package for families and sports fans. But all of DISH’s TV packages have something unique to offer.
America’s Top 120: best for basics
DISH Network’s cheapest programming package is called America’s Top 120. It includes local channels as well as cable channel favorites like ESPN, Disney Channel, and HGTV.
If you’re on a budget, America’s Top 120 gives you the channels you’d expect without an enormous TV bill.
America’s Top 120+: best for sports fans on a budget
If you’re a sports fan without a lot of disposable income, America’s Top 120+ is the way to go. You’ll get access to NFL Network, SEC Network, and Big Ten Network (BTN)—plus Pac-12 Network, which DISH’s competitor DIRECTV doesn’t carry.
Be advised that DISH doesn’t have Fox Regional Sports Networks in this or any other package. If your favorite team’s games are only available there, you’ll have to head over to DIRECTV.
America’s Top 200: best for families and sports fans
Our top DISH channel lineup recommendation is America’s Top 200. Its eclectic channel lineup is an excellent fit for families.
You’ll get more channels for the kids, like TeenNick and Disney Junior. And who doesn’t love some family-friendly Hallmark Channel movies? Plus, sports lovers have specialized channels like NHL Network, NBA TV, and CBS Sports Network.
If you want a DISH TV package that does it all without costing too much, America’s Top 200 will take care of you.
America’s Top 250: best for movie lovers
If you want a ton of movie channels at your fingertips, the best package is America’s Top 250. It has DISH’s biggest channel lineup, with movie channels like FXM, STARZ Encore, and THE MOVIE CHANNEL™.
Unfortunately, DISH doesn’t have two of the biggest movie channels—HBO® and CINEMAX®. You can’t even get them as premium channel add-ons, so if you can’t live without these channels, you’ll need to go for DIRECTV.
