This is about a 43% increase to the last contract they did! :eek: Dish Network did not have the funds when it was a cheaper contract and now that DirecTv just gave them basically 1 billion a year (current contract till 2010) Dish Network does not have those funds either. They keep losing customers every quarter and DirecTv keeps gaining customers. The majority of new customers are HD customers. Looks like the advertising for DirecTv as the HD leader is finally paying off. Hey it means more money in my pocketholy crap that's a huge deal. Looks like Dish Network missed out again. Sucks to be them. lol
What are some things you don like? Both companies offer great things. It would be nice of my DVR would record from the OTA tuner like the Dish Network DVR. One feature I love though is being able to set my DVR from my phone
Well, for starters it seems I lose my signal alot more with Directv. If the snow gets on the receiver I have to go outside in the cold and snow to remove it to get my signal back. Never had that problem with Dish in Nebraska.
Another thing is that the remote just seems alot less responsive than the dish networks remote.
Yeah, the DVR stuff kind of sucks not being able to record from other boxes.
By the way, I need to upgrade to an HD box for my upstairs tv now. and maybe another standard box for my kid's room. Can you help me with that BigRick or should I just call them?
Yeah that's the vip922 and it has a 1TB HDD :eek: That reciever will not be free even for new customers. I don't know what the price is for current customers but I wouldn't be suprised that Dish will only give that reciever to new customers first and then 10 months later let their current customer get one. That's what they did with Turbo HD so I don't know. Ill keep you posted though Horhay. What channels are must haves for you? They have really changed the line up.
