How to Connect Dish Network to a Samsung TV

Updated July 20, 2017

Purchasing a high-definition television without a high-definition television service is like purchasing a rocket fuel car and using low-grade gasoline. Connecting a Samsung television to a Dish Network receiver can be rather easy. An installation agent most likely dropped by and hooked up everything; however, televisions move. But worry not: Connecting a Dish Network receiver will be easy.

Choose the video cable that you wish to use and that is supported by both your Samsung TV and Dish Network receiver. The choices range from coaxial, composite, s-video, component and HDMI. Component and HDMI are video cables that support high-definition video while the rest of the cables only support standard definition.

Plug the video cable into the back of the Samsung TV.

Plug the other end of the video cable into the back of the Dish Network receiver.

Power on the Samsung TV and then the Dish Network receiver. Click "Video Input' button on your remote or TV panel until you come to a Dish Network display.
