I tried getting Dish network installed but I didn't have a line of sight because of trees. The Dish installer said he use to work for Direct TV and I should be able to get that beacuse there satellite is lower and more South than Dish's. I've been checking out Best Buy, CC and calling Direct TV's 800 # to see what the best deal out there is. I need 2 receivers and be able to watch 2 different channels at the same time (dual LNB ?). Going directly through Direct TV seems to be the best deal. BB and CC would charge me for the second receiver and installation. Direct TV would be free after rebate but I would have to sign up for 1 year of programming at $49.99/month. It would be more because they would also charge $5.00 for the 2nd receiver and $6.00 for my local channels. So it would be $61 + taxes/month. The down side is that if I am not able to get a line of sight to Direct TV's satellite than I would have to pay $35 S&H to send the equipment back to Direct TV. Does anyone know of any other deals with Direct TV ?
