In a few months this forum starts seeing posts about how much Dish network sucks and how their customer service/tech people are incompetent. Cable blows sometimes, but I have heard just as many complaints about dish service.
As a bonus, you will be giving your money to Rupert Murdoch (not surprising Fox is the HD channel advertised). I will stream TV over the internet before I install a dish from that megalomaniacal monopolist.
Rupert Murdoch does not own Dish Network. He used to own Direct TV.Just last month, a federal judge in California issued a permanent injunction against NDS Group from intercepting or decoding Dish's signals without authorization. The injunction stemmed from a 5-year-old case alleging that NDS, part of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., had hacked Dish's signals at a time that Murdoch owned rival DirecTV. John Malone's Liberty Media now controls DirecTV.
He isn't making money from all the NFL and MLB packages that you can only get on Direct/Dish? Same difference.
