Exercise as much parental control as you wish

DISH gives you an array of options to block programming you deem unfit. You can hide shows according to their rating—block TV-MA and TV-14, for example, leaving TV-PG and TV-G shows watchable. DISH also gives you the option to lock channels, requiring a passcode to watch them. If that's not enough, parents can hide channels and adult programming from the program guide so they won't show up when kids browse the guide to see what is on. The point is to give you as much latitude and discretion as you want.

Parental guides with kids and parents in mind

The DISH Parental Guide goes beyond the usual ratings and vague labels that come on movies and TV shows to provide detailed explanations of content where we can. Our Parental Guide speaks directly to parents, explaining the content of the movie as it could be understood by impressionable kids and providing context to the ratings. In addition to a write-up, we rate things like Educational Value, Positive Messaging, Drinking, Scariness, and more. Detailed Parental Guide descriptions can be found through the Hopper 3 channel guide and on program info screens.

Parental controls for your whole home

DISH Parental controls can be applied to every television in the house or only to televisions you select, so if your kids are watching television in a room where they aren't always supervised, you can rest assured they'll only be watching shows you approve of. Parents can also monitor what every television in the house is viewing, in real time, using the Hopper 3 DVR.

Yes, we thought of everything

We know kids are smart and crafty. That's why parental controls are protected by a passcode you set. Just make sure it's hard to guess!

DISH's legacy of customer service continues as we enhance our technician health-safety training for added peace of mind

As the nation responds to the spread of COVID-19, DISH has taken additional measures to keep our customers and team members safe, healthy, and connected to vital news, information and entertainment.

Throughout our history, DISH customers have always come first. DISH has been ranked #1 in Customer Satisfaction by J.D. Power and our customers for two years in a row, with top rankings in individual categories, including Courtesy and Professionalism of In-Home Technicians. That legacy of commitment to customer service will continue throughout this pandemic, and DISH has taken active steps to maintain your ability to sign up for DISH service and protect you and your family during technician visits and in the DISH installation process.

Our professional technicians have received enhanced training on critical health-safety procedures, including those recommended by the CDC to promote cleanliness and to help prevent the spread of illness.

  • Work orders will be signed using a unique pin so you won't need to touch the technician's phone or tablet while on-site.
  • Technicians will take enhanced cleaning measures to sanitize surfaces they come in contact with and equipment installed in your home.
  • Technicians will wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
  • Technicians will refrain from leaving behind paper manuals or equipment packaging unless desired by customers.
  • Technicians will practice safe social distancing whenever possible while visiting your home, and have been advised not to shake hands.
  • As always, if technicians have a known illness, they will not visit a customer's home.

We know how important television is to you and your loved ones, so our professional technicians will continue to work in a clean, safe manner consistent with our commitment to customer service.

Additionally, we are proud to support the increased connectivity needs of Americans in these uncertain times by providing wireless carriers with access to our wireless spectrum at no cost.

By working together and treating each other with care, America will endure these challenging times. All of us here at DISH remain committed to serving, entertaining, informing and connecting America.
