#2 DISH: A more expensive option to watch WGN America (but with a better DVR)
What we like: Tons of DVR storage
Drawbacks: More expensive long term
Who it’s perfect for: Fans who plan on recording everything they watch
DISH satellite also offers WGN America, but the cheapest package that includes it costs more than DIRECTV’s channel package.
$79.99 a month (and it stays that way)
The band Radiohead said it best—”No alarms, and no surprises, please.” That’s just the case with DISH when watching WGN live.
With DISH, your monthly fee will stay the same over the course of your two-year contract—unlike DIRECTV. Good on you, DISH, for being straight up with us. Unfortunately, the total cost of DISH over the two-year contract still ends up being more expensive than DIRECTV for watching WGN America.
America’s Top 200 is the package you want to get to watch WGN. Along with WGN, you get your local networks (ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC), as well as ESPN, FX, and HGTV. Check out the full DISH channel list here (don’t worry, you’ll probably find every channel you want).
