The DISH Network approved products list is issued by them and changes without notice. Approved Accessories are required from the Dish Antenna to the Receiver and all components used in mounting and grounding. Items developed and distributed directly from Echostar Satellite LLC are to be considered as acceptable by default. DISH Network develops this list to assure quality and longevity to your DISH Network experience.
Tested by their Labs and Approved by their Engineering Team, these parts represent high quality components that are utilized in other Installations as well. Not all parts used in DISH Network Installations are "Controlled Items" and "Custom" installations may require special materials not found on the list. A Prime example of this is RG11 cable, which is absolutely necessary for long distances between the Dish and the Receiver, but is not addressed at all by the "Approved" list. "Reasonable is as Reasonable does", if you find yourself in a particular "tight spot", ask a DISH Network Installer for advice, and then buy the materials needed from one of the same places they do!
