Pay-per-View programming always has something interesting on. Whether you are wanting to watch the latest movie fight or major sporting event most of them are available on Pay-per-View. However, sometimes it’s confusing knowing where to start.

There are three major ways to order Pay-per-View (PPV) The easiest way to order PPV is straight from your guide. However, this only works if you have your receiver connected to a phone or internet source. If you are connected then simply search for the content on the guide screen. Then press the select button. It will throw up a warning asking if you are sure you want to watch this program and incur the costs. All costs will be paid on your next month’s bill.

You can also order PPV events on-line at by registering an account login on and then going to the Order Pay per View option on the bottom of the menu on the left side of the My Account main page. If you get lost on their site just click on the Dish Network logo in the upper left hand side of the page and then look for “My Account” in the upper right corner. If the My Account isn’t available then you need to log in.  

The last resort is by phone. This should be used as a last resort because they charge a convenience fee for using this feature. However, in a pinch you can always call in and have it added to your programming. Just call 800 333-DISH and when they ask you why you are calling just say “Order Pay-per-View” and you will be transferred to an automated system. If you prefer to talk to a person or are having problems with the automated system just say “Representative” at any time and it will transfer you to a person who will be able to help you.
