    Free channels on Directv??

    just a simple question. Just picked up a Directv box from goodwill for 3 bucks and it has an access card (says DirecTV on the card).



    Before I decide to set up a LNB for 101 is there any free channels that you can get with no subscription? On Dish you can get Dish 101, NASA, Angel One and a couple others.

    (I havent had DirecTV since they bought Primestar back in the day and we were in a Pegasuck area so we went with Dish)

    Yes, there are a few chs, but no "real" chs that I know of.

    I got an old receiver at a yard sale one time and tried the same thing. The only chs I got where the ones by Direcrtv....for example, pay per view previews, the info ch about the sports times, the customer support ch, etc. The only thing worth it was for the background music on the power point chs...The music was the same as one of the XM chs...I just can't remember what station it was, but it played good music!
