Well, fellow Kentuckian; you will pay more sooner or later. I rather not pay a dime more for station Lex 18 (NBC) we lost. Blaming Dish for disputes wrong. Few months back, We made a decision. Top 250, hopper 3 and 3 joeys cost us about 110-120 bucks. And we watched about 10-15 channels a month. Changed it to "Welcome package" and saved at least $40. Leasing equipment hurts you. In my case $31. But, I rarely miss the channels we lost. Life goes on.
