Comcast to direct tv what to expect?

We've had comcast forever but got tired of paying top dollar and them always wanting to jack price up. A lot of friends have dish and are more than happy but I'm a little hesitant mainly because of the issues with dish when they first came out. I guess what should I look out for or what to expect? I've been told to have it mounted low because a wet snow I'll have to brush it off. Anyone else switch and are you happy our disappointed?

Go with Dish network, I had Dish for 2 years, and just switch to the lastest and greatest Direct tv technology, and can say without a doubt that Dish network was 10x better and I even had 2 year old equipment, and I'm sure dish networks New stuff would even be better.

I'm really regretting making the switch.

Good call.

I finally gave into the wife's demands and did this as well. No matter what people say, if you get a bad storm, the shit will go out. But not for long. It's ok. Takes a second to get use to for sure.

Even in high wind. We had Direct TV for several years. They pissed me off after moving - didn't show up to install when supposed to. So I cancelled them.

Their channel line-up isn't bad, and overall we were pleased with the service. They just pissed me off at the worst possible moment.

I got ATT U-verse last week and i like it. Its 140 a month for HD-DVR with bookoo channels, and the fastest internet they have. When they came out the fucked up my alarm system so it wasnt monitered so I had to have certified come out and fix it, but I did get a wireless box out of the deal so I can take my tv anywhere and still watch my shows

I have Dish network for 8+ yrs and i wont go to cable and pay $70 more for same shit..
Direc tv suks i switched to them once &3weeks later wife was sick of there constant outages..

Dish network only goes out with a decent size storm.. my antenna is mounted on a 4x4 6' tall clear view to sky... Hell if u want i can mail u a gift card it gets u free install DVR free hbo/max/show time along with a $50 credit on your first bill...(i get $5 off my bill per month if you use it)

Another thing Dish dont like raising prices but with that u will loose channels until they settle on afair price..

The guy who installed Direct TV told me to take some vegetable oil and coat the dish with it. This will keep the snow from sticking to the dish, no joke!

I thought about getting Dish, but when I found out 1 dish goes to two TVs, I wasn't to please. The guy said that whatever I'm watching will also be displayed in the "slave" tv, which kinda negates the point. We have 4 TV's that all get watched at different times, by different people, watching different stuff.

We can watch different shows at the same time.
