    Leaving Directv for Directv stream

    I may decide to go with D*Stream, but I'll need a Firestick on my LG smart TV. It doesn't have the streaming app, but the Firestick does. With three additional boxes I can drop, and a total of 5 TVs in the house (but only 2 people), this makes sense for me. A lot of our viewing is via...

    AT&T completes DIRECTV spinoff.

    If at&t wanted Directv so they could move the customer base to streaming, that was a colossal mistake. The DTV base population as a whole will have the least access to high speed broadband. That's why they have satellite TV. Maybe at&t was planning to vastly increase their fiber footprint to...

    AT&T completes DIRECTV spinoff.

    Not to change the subject, but has anyone noticed that we don't see at&t ads when the program is paused now?

    No Signal on 3 Channels

    My low signal channels are back, with the old LNB still in place. Maybe it needed a vacation from me, like I needed a vacation at the lake.

    I'll have to try that when we get back from the lake.

    It is an HR54/500. Software 0x159a, Fri 9/3. All system tests are OK.

    No Signal on 3 Channels

    So I got the SL5-SWM from Solid Signal and installed it on the dish. But the receiver doesn't see an SWM with that LNB. I put the old one back on, and that one is visible to the receiver and connects. I know that only one cable connects to the LNB, but I really don't see a power inserter...

    I think that I'll order the SL5-SWM LNB from Solid Signal. It looks like a direct replacement.

    101 is in the 80s and 90s, 119 is in the mid 70s. 103ca is a mix of 0s an teens.

    No Signal on 3 Channels

    Lately I don't get Smithsonian, NFL Network and Science Channel in HD. Other channels are fine. Is this a dish alignment issue or a bad LNB issue?

    It's Free NFL Sunday Ticket Time Again!

    I'm not sure if it's because we bundle Directv with ATT cellular and internet, but for the 3rd year in a row we get free NFL Sunday Ticket. Just got this email today.

    AT&T completes DIRECTV spinoff.

    So if they sold 30% for $1.8 billion, then the whole thing must have only been valued at about $6 billion (30%x=1.8, x=1.8/30%, x=1.8/0.3, x=6).

    Is DirecTV still a thing?

    That 1% of the time is when I need the video most, to check for tornadoes coming near.

    Is DirecTV still a thing?

    I've had satellite TV since 2004. I don't know about the other big lies, but rain fade is a thing for me. If I didn't have OTA to fall back on I'd have gone back to cable long ago.

    No more auto renew on NFLST or is this article BS?

    I've gotten Sunday Ticket from Directv without asking for the last two years, and I've never been charged.

    Free NFL/ST?

    I do. Maybe that explains it.

    Free NFL/ST?

    I got the same email today, for 2020. And they gave me Sunday Ticket last year too, out of the blue. I don't use it much, since my old team sucks, but sometimes ...
