Default Sky Sat 20 - ad in today's paper for cheap service

Anyone experience or have knowledge of Sky Sat 20 satellite TV service? I'm looking to save some bucks by switching to my relatively costly DISH network.
Sky Sat is advertising 210 channels, including local and HD for $34.99/mo. plus taxes and free installation.

Thoughts?

Default SkySat20

OK..I bit the bullet and have subscribed to SkySat20. After a $205 bill from Comcast I have had enough. I tried calling Comcast and spent almost 2 hours on hold (i had on the speakerfone and was working on my computer
I talked to SkySat20 and signed up today. They quoted me a price of $76 including tax for 250 channels and whole house dvr. Ill still have to pay for internet service, tho.
Have no idea how well this will work. It is Dish Network and of course Im worried about outages during storms. I can always switch back....time will tell.

I noticed in their ad that they said they have the nfl package and mlb package also. I thought that Directtv was the only provider that had the NFL package. They did show that they had the NFL channel but that is not the NFL package.
