My family and I are finally fed up with the rising costs and poor quality of of cable TV and are now considering moving to Satelite.I've started the research (that I was asked to do since I'm the HT freak in the family) by looking at the plans and offers by Direct TV and Dish Network. Which of these two providers is better? it should be mentioned that we are looking at just getting the real basic Top 50 or 100 plan probably with no premium services and no HD (since we do not have a HD TV and have no immediate plans of getting one.) For this kind of service which one will be better? For Direct TV what is the deal with the phone line? why does it need to be hooked up? and does it need to be hooked up all the time? we have 2 TVs in the house are we going to need 2 recievers to get the signal to each TV or is there a easier way to do this? also how does the billing work for a 2 TV household? If we buy into Satelitte what are we going to need to purchase from CC or BB? any recommendations on gear we need? thanks.
