I had always looked at DirecTV in the past, but a buddy of mine just showed me a pretty good deal for the Dish Network I get through him. (1 std receiver and 1 PVR receiver, and installation for free.) I don't see any major differences in channels, and I think I remember that the Dish Network's dish is bigger than DirecTV's. Any big differences in quality, etc? I think I have also heard that DirecTV's customer service is a little better too. ?? Thanks!
