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.


Step 1

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.
