Before Ricks Satellite Service 

People used to question why anyone would ever pay for cable when they could get television free in the air. They would say that no one would ever pay for something they can get for free. But, when people discovered the quality improvement of cable compared to Broadcast TV and premium networks like HBO, many people started subscribing and cable became widely accepted.

 Now the cable conglomerates have to compete against the benefits of Digital Satellite TV. More than 27 million households have already switched to Satellite TV and now it's your turn. Why? When you compare Satellite TV to Cable, you will discover that the biggest reasons are cost, picture quality, program choices, and customer satisfaction. At the end of the day, the bottom line is... if you watch only a couple of shows... or if you live in an area Cable costs you less than $20 per month, then cable may be your best option. But, on the other hand, if you want the biggest variety of shows, movies, sports, and news for the least amount of money...especially with the digital transition here, if you want to enjoy all your favorite shows in crystal clear digital picture with CD quality digital sound... and you want the option of watching them in High Definition format and recording them on a DVR receiver, then Satellite TV is what you're looking for. Don't waste another moment, pick up your phone and call us at (325)725-1471 right now!!!

Frequent Questions


Availability - Apartment Living

Many apartment residents install the dish inconspicuously on a south-facing balcony. If your apartment management has concerns about this, visit the FCC web site [http://www.fcc.gov/mb/facts/otard.html] for information on a rule from the Federal Communications Commission about satellite dish installation on rental and other properties.


Availability - International

Unfortunately, as of right now, all of the Satellite TV services offered on this site are for first-time subscribers residing in the United States only.


Availability - Trees and Obstructions

Your Satellite TV system needs to be installed with a clear line of sight to the southern sky without any obstructions like trees, buildings, mountains, power lines, etc... These type of obstructions can cause interference with the satellite signal. If you cannot find a different location that provides a clear line of sight from the dish to the satellite in the sky, you may have to trim your trees. If necessary, you can re-install your dish up to 100 feet away from your house without adding any signal amplifiers.


Availability - Where is Satellite TV offered?

Satellite TV service is offered all over the U.S. including Hawaii and Alaska although professional installation is NOT FREE in either Alaska or Hawaii. In Alaska, you are so far North that a pole is required to raise the dish up high enough to allow the dish to "see" over the horizon line of the Earth. This way the dish will have a clear line of sight to get the signal from the satellite in the sky. In Hawaii it is similar but different because in Hawaii you are almost directly underneath the Satellite in the sky and a special attachment is required for the installation to allow the dish to have a clear line of sight.


Digital Transition

When you sign-up for Satellite TV, there is no need to worry about the digital transition. Digital Satellite TV made the transition very simple for you! If you already subscribe to Satellite TV, there is likely nothing you needed to do—We already took care of you. If you have not yet signed-up for Satellite TV, right now is the best time to get 100% digital TV to get more of your favorite channels for less money than cable! Call us right now at (325)725-1471.


International Programming

Satellite TV is the leader in providing international programming offering packages from around the world ( Africa, Armenia, Brazil, Caribbean, China, Europe, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Middle East, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Vietnam...) as well as Spanish Language channels and packages. Call us at (325)725-1471 and we will give you all the details.


Local Channels


DISH has the Abilene, Texas LOCAL CHANNELS

When you sign-up for Satellite TV, you can also subscribe to local channels in most metropolitan areas across the country. You also have the option of receiving local channels with an off air antenna that can be connected to your satellite receiver and accessed via your remote control. Give us a call at (325)725-1471 and we will give you all the details.


Painting the Satellite TV Dish

Yes, you can paint the dish but not the LNB at the end of the arm on the dish. If you do decide to paint the dish, you must make sure to us a flat, matte finish paint only. Do not use a gloss, latex or metallic paint. Any color is fine. It is also recommended that you use as few coats as possible as more paint will increase signal loss. Having said that, painting the dish is not recommended because if you use the wrong type of paint or if you get any paint on the LNB at the end of the arm on the dish, it will cause signal loss and void your warranty. Before you can decide if you are going to paint your dish, you need to sign-up, so please call us at (325)725-1471. Rick knows all the do's and don'ts regarding satellite dishes.


Parental Controls and Channel Blocking

When our professional installer sets up your system they will explain how easy it is for you to block any channel(s) you may want to password restrict (adult channels, premium channels, pay-per-view or specific programs by its rating). Using the Parental Controls to block programming can actually hide the blocked channels from your Electronic Program Guide (EPG). This prevents any children in the household from viewing the programming or accessing the program information. Call us at (325)725-1471 and sign-up for Satellite TV now.


Weather and Reception Issues

Occasionally during heavy sustained rainfall, you may experience a brief period when the picture may freeze momentarily while the receiver re-locates a lost satellite signal. This may also happen if the dish becomes covered by a substantial amount of snow. This is easy to fix by gently brushing away heavy accumulation of snow from the dish arm. During your FREE Professional Installation, your signal strength will also be optimized to reduce the likelihood of signal loss during severe weather. As a preventative, you can also apply a product like "Rain X" to the dish itself which will make the rain slide right off, the same way it makes the rain roll off you car wind shield. If this is a major concern to you, ask the installer to set up the dish in a location where it will be easy for you to access. Aside from that, there are also several aftermarket products available (such as a "Hotshot" or a "Dish Cover") that will reduce the amount of snow or ice that will be able to build up. The next time you pass by your local Cable office, look at all the large Satellite dishes they use to get the signal that they pump out to you through their cable. When you subscribe to Satellite TV you will get the signal without any "line noise" or "ground distortion". Call us at (325)725-1471 and ditch your cable!!! Get your own DISH.
