I guess it's got a much better signal.
The local seller's signal is very bad.

I've got it. It definitely has many more channels than normal dish and many of the channels are in full HD. But my family uses it more than me. I just use it for Bein Sports.

Re: Is cablevision worth it?

You can check the prices on their website. I think you pay annually, not monthly.

There are a few times when Bein Sports is in HD and other times when it's not. I've called and asked why sometimes the channels suddenly aren't in HD anymore and from what I understand it isn't their fault (something to do with what resolutions they receive). The channel is usually in HD but I don't receive the HD resolution all the time (e.g. watching Being Sports 11HD but with normal ~500 resolution).

To get 11 and 12 you have to pay for the most expensive package, which is standard practice across all carriers, honestly. It's because the best content is on 11 and 12.

Cablevision is great. Why? Because OSN. I don't really have anything else to say, OSN is simply amazing.

BeIn sports on cablevision is SD, on Digitek, its HD.
Now i dont have official subscription from cablevision, so i dont know about the packages.
What i have is a dish on the roof, capturing landline signals and satellites, like cablevision/Digitek/Econet (currently i have cablevision and digitek installed) and how i watch the channels is with cccaam.
I have both Bein packages from Cablevision and Digitek (and obbiously i watch digitek cause its HD).
And i have a bunch of OSN channels, like OSN movies action HD, OSN movies HD, OSN first, OSN first comedy,OSN movies kids,OSN movies premier etc etc... Discovery HD, Nat Geo Wild HD, Outdoor HD , AMC, Boomerang, Cartoon network, Disney etc etc.
Digitek has some great channels also like Comedy Central, Nickelodeon etc.

If you have a dish installed and a receiver with cccam support, i suggest you do the same.
And forget about all BS as subscription and stuff like that.

You mean you buy subscriptions or you buy a card (cracked)  that enables you to watch those channels?

Re: Is cablevision worth it?

No you open the channels through cccam servers, so obviously Internet is needed.
Although its not streaming, you just need an internet connection to connect to the servers only.

So firstly you need a receiver that supports cccam (which most receivers you see for sale nowadays do), and then you need to buy a proper cccam subscription (which will last one year) .

will you get all bein channels (11 & 12)? how much is the yearly CCCAM subscription fee? does it happen that the subscription expires before the 1 year?

Re: Is cablevision worth it?

Yea, you will get Bein Sports from 1 to 13. (HD on Digitek and SD on cablevision).
but firstly of course, you need your dish on the roof to capture these satellites first (Cablevision and Digitek).

For the cccam subscription, it will last you one year, no more no less.
I have my subscription from a reliable supplier, you will watch the channels silky smooth with no cuts.
Please check your PM for further info.

I think it really depends on how good/bad the "dish" in your neighborhood is. Personally mine is great, so I never felt the need to deal with Cablevision. My sister has it though and she tells me it's not all great, there's outages sometimes.
