Hi all.

Current info:
I'm a current DHP customer (Since February).
AT100 package
Have a 500 w/ (1) 508 & (2) 3?? receivers.
a Sony 34" 16:9 HDTV (that I would like to get HDTV channels on soon)

Not that I would watch them, but I just realized that some local channels are on the 61.5 location. Which I believe Dish would install for free.

Would there be any advantage to getting that installed?
Will that help with getting HDTV in the future?
Would they give me a Superdish instead?

I would like to get HDTV soon, but Dish tells me that since I haven't been a subscriber for 12 mo yet, they cannot give me a deal on the 6000's.

Any suggestions on how to best handle getting HDTV?



"...There's no need to fear, because his name can be said by anyone."

They will be out on thursday to do the 2nd dish for 61.5.

Now I just wish there was a deal for the 811 for DHPers like me. :evil:

You can buy one for the full msrp price of $399 and it will be covered by the Lifetime warranty as long as you are on the DHP plan.

Yeah, but I'd rather pay $299 or whatever the current deal is for everyone else. ;)
