Thinking of switching from Dish(hopper) to Directv(Genie) ...any opinions?
After having dish for more than 5yrs now and being pretty happy with there service i am considering switching. My mother was unable to get Dish network after my recommendation and then got Directv, i was suprised there menus/OS had changed and it looked great! She had this installed like 6 months ago or so and does not have the Genie. I am thinking since the Genie is free, NOW is the time to sign up and try this out.
Are there any fees at all if i start up the service and cancel within the 30 days or whatever the trial period may be. I know that i would have to pay the part of the plan for the time i had it though.
The most annoying thing i found with my moms hd-dvr was the ads and countless channels scattered everywhere. Is this solved with the Genie? I tried making her a favorites channels list but that is a serious pain in the arse, especially since if you are viewing that all the time i don't think you would know when you are receiving free trials of other channels? Also, the channels themselves are just scattered everywhere it seems, cant explain it since i am not sitting in front of her setup riight now. But you have to flip through like 30 pages from your locals, to your premiums...At least with dish i go through maybe 7 pages and i go from chanells 0-25 to 300+
Any other benefits or cons from you guys that have made this switch? Anything to watch out for when ordering?
