I'm planning to finally invest in a DirecTV system when I get my new HDTV. I'm sure it's different depending on where you are but roughly how much can I expect to spend on a monthly bill, if I have all of the movie channels? I have 4 rooms that have TVs in them, and there could end up being a 5th when I get the new TV, is it possible to have 5 different TVs going with 5 different channels on? I know best buy has some free 3 room system deal going right now? Or do you still have to watch the same thing on every tv? In a bad storm or with lots of snow on the roof covering the dish, will I be able to watch anything? The reason I want it is I'm kind of tired of paying so much for cable, and a friend has Comcast HDTV and it's really not that great. I've been hearing that the best way to go for HDTV has always been satelite. I know there's not a lot of channels just yet but I just want to be prepared for the future I'm currently paying $178 a month for 2 digital cable boxes, all movie channels, cable modem and a phone line. The cable TV part is over 100 a month, so I'd like to lower that. Will I have to keep the cable for my internet? DSL isn't any good where I live, I've tried several different providers and my house is just in a bad spot My cable modem is really great though. I've read about satelite internet connections, are they any good? I do a lot of downloading and uploading so I need something that's good both ways.
