I sat up until 5am until the eye of Hurricane Irma had completely passed and we never lost Directv, not even HD, never had to go back up. If you know how to switch to backup non-HD channels, you'll almost never lose picture with Directv. Plus my DVR records up 1000 hours of HD video, I've got probably 800 hours in movies now, can never watch everything. Worse case scenario, a Super Bowl, I got an attic antenna hooked to the guest BR TV, unless it's on channel 2 I can still see 6, 9 and 35.

You probably don't need any holes in your roof, a sat dish can easily be ground mounted in probably 90% of the homes. Most people in my area have ground mounted sat dishes.

We've had Dish since we dropped Comcast a number of years ago. We are satisfied, but must renegotiate price every couple years.

I got rid of cable and have antenna installed in attic, which you can get all networks and many other channels. I also got a ROKU and subscribe to YOUTUBETV it's the best and has unlimited DVR storage.

What village are you in that gives you such good reception with the antenna?

Question Possible Risk

I heard, and can't swear to it but was told that if you mount the Dish on the roof you may risk losing your roof warranty?

DISH Is great for us. DISH sponsors an APP called DISHANYWHERE, it’s free and I have it downloaded on our outside pool TV. I watch the full network to include taped stuff with no wires, just our house WIFI.
