I was in Best Buy looking at the HDTV Direct TV receivers/decoders for my HD ready TV and was wanting to buy a receiver/decoder now and only use the receiver (over the air) part of the decoder for now, but have the ability to get direct TV down the line. Where I live I can get 4-5 DTV stations, and I am pleased with the cable right now, but the life od a Methodist Pastor means I will move and I have a very real possibility in the future to be moved to a place where I will not be near ANY DTV stations and I will get Direct TV, but until then I do not want to buy the satellite system and the dish until I have too. The Best Buy guys told me I can not buy any DirectTV receiver/decoder unless I sign a deal to sign up for DirectTV in the next 30 days after the purchase. Is this true? How do I get around this problem. I promise I will use DirectTv in the future, just not within the next 3-4 years. Thank you for all of you who care enough to help me! Take care!
