I live in State College, PA and have Directv service and it works fine. When I had the house built I made sure their were more than enough outlets where I needed them. I have Directv HD service and it also works great. What I wasn't counting on was the poor local channel reception. We have to have a second dish for that and the quality it terrible. Also the local channels here do not broadcast in HD. So when a show on one of the major networks is broadcast in HD we don't get it that way because it has to be recieved on the second and smaller dish. I have Comcast High speed internet already in the house. I called Comcast to have thier basic package and HD package for the major networks installed. I have a line running right to the TV were I need it. It can be connected just like the internet. I was told by Comcast that it was against the law to have both cable and satellite service to the same house. I could not believe it. Have you ever heard of that law?
