I'm considering getting satellite TV. Which satellite TV company do you think is best, an why?
direct tv...dish sucks....dish has lousy customer service....direct tv will follow right thru...with that said...i have cable now.....direct tv is pricey
They both provede reliable service. I have had direct TV for close to 20 years and am satisfied.
Check online as to what channels are included in what package and pick the one that offers the cheapest package that covers your needs.
I've had Dish for over 12 years. Had to replace two seperated Dish setups due to lightening strikes and it was done easily. I've never had any sort of problem with Dish and except for loosing the signal during severe storms, my service has been flawless. Guess I'm lucky.
I have AT&T Uverse.
Better than both
I've looked online. It sounds like Dish is cheaper
Yes BBD I forgot the severe storm outages. Either very heavy rain or snow will kill your satellite signal for the duration of the severe weather.
Also trees in the path of your satellite to the south or southwest will kill or degrade your signal to the point where lesser rain storms will kill it.
Just make sure their package covers the channels you like.
Also remember you are entering I think a 2 year contract and may have to pay for your equip if you cancel service before the contract term is up.
I wish I could just pick and pay for the channels I wanted. I have no need for 25 shoppng and 20 religious channels.
I already have satellite internet. The only problem I have is when too much snow accumulates on the dish, so I'll simply brush it off with a broom.
I agree with that. Is there a way to block the channels you don't want from your TV?
