My wife tells me that a "residential account executive" from Optimum cable has been checking out my neighborhood (obviously looking for 3 and 5 LNB dishes, at least in my case) and offering to buy out my current service committment with D*.

She told him that I make all of the TV decisions, so I have a feeling that he'll be back sometime soon (he left his calling card). He'll have to jump through quite a few hoops to "wow" me into switching over to cable...much less Optimum.

I'm already in bed with Verizon, so I get a discount on my phone, DSL, and D*. plus all the incentives that I pushed for when having HD service installed by D*.

I'll let you know what this guy "promises" to me, when I finally get to speak with him.

Anyone else get "ambushed" lately? ;)

With D11 coming online soon it would be crazy to part with your 5LNB slimline dish.:)

Don't forget to get the figures for what it will cost you AFTER the incentives are over.

No worries...I'm staying put...been with DirecTV for over 10 years :)

Quite happy with the HD service so far...might cancel HD Extra...will give it one more month to decide.
