It's been going on since November. Since ATT owns DirecTV they're in no hurry to work out an agreement. They figure the longer they stall, the more people will leave Dish and go to DirecTV.

Not good to lose your signal with a hurricane approaching. That's when you need it most.

[QUOTE=Retiring;1655530 In TV, I don’t find the signal loss during storms acceptable so it’s cable for me. Just my opinion.[/QUOTE]

Yea, would be my luck to lose the signal during the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl, or with a hurricane bearing down on us.

I had dish when we lived OKC where cable wasn’t available. Had little problems and was way cheaper than Comcash. I was disappointed when I got here and my house was only wired for comcash. Plus comcash don’t have RFTV which I liked several programs they ran. I didn’t want no holes drilled in my roof and centurylink did find run cable in my neighborhood, but centurylink don’t offer the tennis channel so that’s out.

Most of us have non satellite internet service. That allows us to obtain most local or regional news seen on TV.

Dish has the Orlando stations.

I had Dish for 15-20 years before coming down here. Was great for boats, cabins, and rv’s because you could take one box and a cheap dish with you.

Have had it here now for 5 years and still fairly happy. The price tends to slowly rise, but the cable companies seem worse.

LOVE DISH. Lots of recording space. Ease of use. Rain clouds are short loss at best. Always reliable.

Negotiate price every 2 years. Got a better price this past year than the previous 2 years, plus they replaced my 2 Joeys and remotes for free. Only took 10 minutes on the phone.

Have had DISH for over 12 years, both up north and here. Best equipment, best service and eay to negotiate prices. Right now, no HBO, no problem, just subscribed to HBO now. And by the way, throughout the entire "hurricane", never lost signal for even a minute.
