I live in the North Jersey area and am leaning towards Dish over Direct TV. I will not have any sports packages (except maybe the Golf Channel), but I want HBO and local channels. I have a HT system, so I would like to get Dolby Digital 5.1 broadcasts. We do not have a HD TV. I have a cable modem for high speed internet through our PC, and I am pretty sure that when I stop getting cable I will be unable to get the cable modem signal. Also we have four TV's in the house. Two of them we would want hooked up seperately (master bedroom and family room), this would probably entail two receivers. We currently pay $65 a month for two cable boxes (other two TV's run without boxes) with HBO and another $30 a month for calbe internet access. I would pay more but cost is a concern. Value is the most important thing. My questions: -Does Dish have a good high speed internet option for my computer? -There are so many deals to choose from (fee installations, fee receivers, etc.), what is currently the best package? -Should we wait for better deals in the new year? -What should we do with our other two TV's? Does it make sense to run basic cable in the house for them (thus keeping the cable modem option as well)? I would rather not have ANY cable, though. -Should we check out Direct TV as well? -Where would you buy the package? So many questions, so little time! Thanks.
