You'll get it all back. Get the you panties out of a wad.
Frankly, I wasn't unhappy with Dish. Their CS was fine, and the programming was up to par. When we asked about HD, and they wanted $140 for the total install price, I got ticked. I don't like to be robbed.
Direct TV will provide HD, DVR and several other perks, included in the standard install. With the savings for the first year, we'll be winning. I don't think the channel selection will vary much. It's like cell service: They all offer the same thing, but a new customer can get a GREAT deal. Existing customers get the shaft.
I hope the guy who installs tomorrow isn't too put off by the wire maze in the living room. 6 speaker wires to a receiver, DVD player, TV and satellite. Yeah, there are a lot of things going on under my TV. My worst nightmare is that he'll throw the receiver in, hook it to the TV, and ignore the rest.
Oh, I can hook up the rest. I've always handled that part of the household. I'm the electronics hag. I just don't want to do it on a Monday evening. We shall see. I hope he's a good guy and hooks it all up.
I'm just sayin'.
