Hello from wild wonderful WV


I live in the more rural south western part of WV. I have worked most of my life installing CATV and Sat TV. I have worked for Time Warner,Comcast, DirecTV and Dishnetwork. Currently I am driving a Cat 785 rock truck on a strip mines. Way better money.

Glad to find a forum of decent human beings who seem to know what they are talking about and look forward to getting some good info and helping out anyone that I can.

Hello from wild wonderful WV


Welcome Tony,
Always thought you were a NASCAR driver?
Anyway, what's the better deal? Dish or Direct?
I just switched from Comcast to Dish but can't get the local sports channels.

Hello from wild wonderful WV


Directv is the best deal. I have had them for over 10 years even when I could get free dish. Their euipment is easier to use and can really be installed and and maintained by a diyer.

Trust me about the equipment. I have had to replace more set top boxes for dish than directv. As far as price goes dish is cheaper though.

Directv has dish beat hands down on HD quality and quanity. Although dish does have the 922 dvr with slingbox built in but that thing is so buggy it requires lots of patience.

As far as the sports no one can beat directv but if you watch the dish commercials they tell you different. They lie.
