I have Dish now but they do not have local HD channels in the Charlottesville VA. area so I "moved" to Charlotte NC. which uses the same spot beam as Charlottesville and was able to pick up there HD locals. My problem with Dish is their signal strength is terrible here (30-50) at best. I am thinking about switching to Direct but they do not offer locals here and was wondering if I did switch and "moved" does Direct use spot beams like Dish? and is it as easy to "move" as it is with Dish? If so I am switching. I have always liked Direct better.
