Dish to Raise Rates in January


Dish to Raise Rates in January

It must be that time of the year:


After not changing rates for two years, Dish Network will increase the price of its core TV bundles between 7% and 20% effective January 2013, with most packages rising $5 per month.


Dish spokesman John Hall said the operator is introducing the “modest” hikes because of significant increases in programming costs.


“As an industry we have seen [programming rate] increases in double-digit percentages,” he said, adding that over the last two years all of Dish’s major competitors have increased prices.


Four of Dish’s core tiers will increase by $5 per month: the entry-level Smart Pack will increase from $24.99 to $29.99 per month; the America’s Top 120 package will increase from $44.99 to $49.99 per month; America's Top 200 will increase from $59.99 to $64.99 per month; and America’s Top 250 will go from $69.99 to $74.99.


The all-inclusive America’s Everything package with 290-plus channels including premium networks will rise $15, from $104.99 to $119.99 per month.
