Qwest has been trying to sell me DTV service via the phone line, just like internet access, for years, why not you?

They can be pretty crafty with installation, you should check with them about placement.
Which in Southern California is great. But those of us with Dishes in winter zones want them where you can knock the snow off!
We are on our second trip with Dish, had them for years but had little trouble with snow. It seems the HD dishes are at a different angle since we had some trouble several times this year after rarely having it the last time we had Dish.
No way I'd have Direct TV just personal don't like them. But I've talked to them and Dish about what to do with snow problems that block signals.
If someone told you use PAM please don't, both dish people say that makes a sticky mess. One friend of mine has heat tape on his and that works pretty well but if its wet fast falling snow its pretty slow to work. Have had the dish/direct people suggest ski wax but am told that has to be put on warm/hot. Anyone here know about that?
I know that next summer when its warm I'm wanting to do something I hope will help. I'm getting pretty old to be out there with my mop trying to knock snow off the dish. lol

For some of us, we are willing to pay through the teeth to see live games but we are happy with cable or whatever other option we have. I don't want to switch my provider, install a satellite, and go through that hassle for something I should be able to pay for separately.
If the NFL wants to make money - fine. Charge me $20, $30, hell even $50 per game and I'll probably still pay to watch them live on my computer. NFL Sunday Ticket on Direct TV is about as crappy as the fact that you can't get a Coke at Taco Bell, only Pepsi.
