First DirecTV satellite is an original "cord-cutter". Never had one. I posted this on the DirecTV forum: Leaving my 3mbs down DSL connection in Nevada five years ago I was an AT&T hater but hung as a loyal 21 yr DirecTV subscriber. For the past two years I've fooled around with "cord-cutting", a misnomer, but despite having OTA attic antennas and GB fiber, DirecTV satellite, to me, just does it all better. The last few months we've had glimpses of Internet delivery (merger with Now), revived OTA tuning and recording (now active), and a proposed new Android box that would add "streaming" apps. Today, I am doubling down and ditching my 2-line T-Mobile 70 buck/mo unlimited plan and my coop's 1GB fiber. AT&T's new military and veteran's incentives have enticed me to go all in with their Unlimited Premium, GB fiber, bundled with my DirecTV satellite. Another incentive is that I was overrun by Florence. T-Mobile was severely degraded, my fiber Internet failed, but my DirecTV sat survived after the deluge stopped. Neighbors with AT&T fiber, if they had power, had Internet. I do have a natural gas Generac which was the real champ through that mess. I'm all in with AT&T.
