    How to get the best offer from DirecTV

    I just switched back to Dish, but thought I would share how to get the best offer to stay from DirecTV. I might have taken it, but they waited until I already had all new equipment and a shiny new 2 year contract with Dish to make me the offer. Call and disconnect. They will make you an offer...

    Back to Dish @ the Iowa State Fair

    Last week several things came together. I had in the back of my mind that it had been about 2 years since our last update with DirecTV, but hadn't thought a lot about it. Then my wife plopped the latest DTV bill (bundled in with our CenturyLink bill for landline and internet) down in front of...

    H25 Whole House Freeze

    Thursday we had a Whole House installation done. An HR24 and three H25s were installed. Last night (Saturday) was the first time we had something recorded and actually were going to watch something recorded on the H25 in our bedroom. I was less than pleased when the result looked like trying...

    Quick Install

    My mom has DirecTV. She waited to tell me she hadn't been able to make her TV work all afternoon until after a Bible Study at our church last night.

    Digital Converter Boxes

    I don't know if there is a better, more technical place for this question, but I'm just going to put it here as a chat item. A few months ago I submitted the request for a couple of coupons for the digital converter boxes. I'm not really sure if I will use them for anything or not, but thought...

    Memorial Day

    In many places, at least in the past, this was known as Decoration Day. This day memorializes no battles, the signing of no armistices, or anything of any military significance. This day is set when it is for one reason, flowers are in bloom, and could be used to decorate the graves of the...

    DirecTV almost has me convinced

    DirecTV almost has me convinced NOT to resubscribe. After I was all set to do so. We moved here 3 years ago, and briefly had Qwest for our telephone service, but switched to Mediacom because they could bundle our phone, internet and TV in one package, saving us some money. Qwest now has a...

    Corny Movie Recomendation

    Do you like sappy, corny, sentimental, inspirational sports movies? If you do, I have a recommendation for you. My family and I went to see The Final Season last night, and loved it. Of course, we all live in Iowa, so we aren't unbiased. The reviews you might read are being especially...
