If you are sick with your satellite provider, why dont you check out for Dish Network? You will find more and better services the way I did.
take advantage of special offers
Dish offers up a variety of add ons, from HD receivers to DVR service, for a low monthly fee. If you take advantage of special offers upon sign up, you can many times get a free DVR recorder and save yourself the usual initial $99 fee.
We decided to go to Dish. They were wonderful. The install was fanstastic, everything was installed correctly. Even the install guy was nice and friendly (even though he had to go in some odd places in the house).
HD recievers work great
The equipment that Dish uses is very nice. Their dvr's work very well and have adequite storage space for programs. They have many HD channels and their HD recievers work great. If you have a problem with your reciever they are more than happy to provide techinical assistance or send you a new one.
The set is up easy
I will say that Dish is easier to use. The set is up easy. The guides are much more straightforward. It is also easier to search for programs with Dish.
