    DirecTV with the sports package! You can cancel the package after the season if you don't find enough you like and sign back up when football starts.

    Most the installers are independent contractors, they rush the install and don't do a good job of aiming the dish. There a place in the settings where you can see the actual signal strength of satellites. You can adjust the dish really easy and it will hardly ever go out. I did mine a few years ago and even in the heaviest storms it doesn't go out totally, just flickers/freezes for a second or two. I suggest checking the mounting job also, they may not use all the available mounting hardware(put two lags in where there should be four).

    If you have a "Big HDTV" you cant beat DirecTV!

    As far as Internet, I pay Comcast $50 or so and get plenty of speed. But directv + Comcast for Internet only is still cheaper than Comcast only. Comcast really kills you with the extra charges per HD receiver. My bill was up over $260 before I said enough is enough. Haven't looked back.

    As an added bonus, you get NFL Sunday ticket the first year free. Let the significant other know you will be busy all weekend for the next 3 months :)

    I'm Renting a townhome and from what my property manger has told me that it looks like I can't do it for some odd reason. Idk, pretty upset about it. I'm gonna have to roll with Warner I guess. Really chaps my butt

    Little known fact. If your DirecTV contract is up, they will give you NFL Sunday ticket free if you threaten to leave...not JUST for new customers as advertised. (ask me how I know :wink:)
