I really am disliking Time Warner Cable where I live and I am seriously thinking about going to satellite. I just have a few reservations because I do not know anything about satellite tv. Weather - does it really screw with the signal? DirecTV - can someone put their FAQ that I've been reading into English? The more I read their site the more I believe that their basic package that is $39.99 a month isn't really true b/c you have to pay this silly $4.99 a month for each extra receiver? Wth is up with that? DishNetwork - Don't know anything about it. Seems to be less expensive but not as feature rich. Anyone have any reviews of these issues? Know of a good site I can do more research on them? I'm not into all the extra DirecTivo or HD stuff. I'm just looking for the basic packages nothing fancy. Thanks for any help.
