About Us

Columbia Basin Satellite & Electric

Satellite TV Service

Established in 1984, Columbia Basin Satellite has been providing quality satellite TV service to customers since before DISH Network even existed. We also have more 5 star reviews than DISH itself. When we started out, we worked with satellite dishes anywhere from 6 to 20 feet in diameter, both in commercial and residential settings. And as technology evolved, so did we. 

As the satellite dish was reduced to a mere 18 inches through the assistance of DISH Network, Columbia Basin Satellite teamed up with them to help pioneer this technology.

Columbia Basin Satellite prides itself on being customer focused, serving the Tri-Cities and greater Mid-Columbia communities. Our philosophy is "take care of the customer first, and then the rest will fall into place." We strive to build long-term relationships with our customers through exceptional customer service.

Our sales approach is to provide helpful information to our customers to help them make the decision that suits them best. No upselling or sales mumbo jumbo guaranteed.

A Reputation for Quality

With quality electrical, cable, and satellite TV service as our ultimate goal, it only makes sense that we have the highest customer satisfaction and retention rating awarded in the industry.

We don’t expect you to believe us just because we say so. We encourage you to check out what our customers have to say, and contact us to see for yourself. We’ll give you the honest answers you’re looking for without the high-pressure sales approach.

Unlike many satellite retailers online, who sign up new customers and then forget about them, our goal is to keep you happy with your service for many, many years. We’ve been around for nearly a quarter of a century and hope to serve our customers for decades to come.

We've expanded our scope to include electrical services, allowing us to provide a more robust customer experience.

When installing television and internet service in homes and businesses, needing to move or alter wiring and other electrical components became a daily occurrence. That's why expanding into offering a full lineup of electrical services was a natural evolution of our business. It allows us to do our job quickly, and do it right—without having to call in an electrical contractor. The result? Time and cost savings for all involved.
