After bleeding out around 823,000 customers in the first three quarters of 2017 despite spending $203 million on advertising in the first six months of the year, Dish Network has launched a creative review of its San Francisco ad agency partner Camp + King.
Sources close to the review tell Adweek that numerous agencies have been invited to pitch Dish for new business, while Camp + King has demurred on an opportunity to defend its work.

Dish reps had not comment for Fierce.

Camp + King has been working with Dish since 2015, notably crafting Sling TV’s seminal ad campaign, which bears the slogan “Take Back TV.”

Not a fan of either campaign.

Bring the Boston guys back.

Once again like anything concerning DISH just come to Satelliteguys and ask before launching an expensive campaign. See what the overall thoughts are. (No not everyone will agree but you will usually get a consensus) From day one I hated the listener ads. Horrible. One of their only good campaigns was the Boston guys and their "Get Picky" Sling.com campaign is good, actually very good with that leading actor now is showing up in other shows.

I loved the one with the two astronauts floating in space and turning on the HD channels.
Can we get bluegras to apply for that job? :biggrin

Dish has never had a campaign that I liked.
D* has had many great ones (Hannah and the Talking horse for obvious reasons) but their latest about still liking cable is the WORST, bar none, of any they have ever done.
I always come away from those commercials with the message that people who like to have bad things happen to them choose Directv.

The talking horse was really fun, especially his accent

The problem with Dish is they won’t spend the big bucks and do things right.

Dish networks advertising is like buying a car. They go to the car dealership with the intentions of purchasing a Cadillac Escalade, but end up buying a used ford escort instead.

Yes the escort will get you from point A to point B but it does not get the job done in style

They may be cheap, but at least they didn’t get swallowed up by the Death Star (Ma Bell) who cannibalize everything they touch!
