Well, I took the plunge and signed up for DirecTv. I've been a customer of Dish for nearly 6 years but I just could not wait any longer for more HD. Install is Sat. Apr 5. I'll get HD service to 2 tv's for $54.98 for 12 months, Free Showtime & Starz for 3 months and a 50.00 credit (Five ten-dollar credits) for saying that my brother recommended them. Of course he also gets the same 50.00 credit. This was just too good of a deal to pass up. I did have to pay 99.00 for the 2nd receiver, the first one was free. Hope I made the right decision, I guess l'll find out Saturday between 8 and 12.
