    Direct tv or dish network?

    What do you suggest anyone that has one? Are they good in storms or anything happen to you?

    I have Direct TV, but it usually loses signal in strong rains. I had signal when a hurricane came once. I'm not sure about the Dish Network, though.

    I have hacked both I mean had both before and by far I liked Dish network better. The PPV line up is better and I like the box setup better.

    I never really had an issue with them going out, but a few times and that was direct. My Dishnetwork rarely went out. It was mainly because of the tree growing where I had my dish. Trimmed it and was fine.

    Back when DirecTV had a deal with Tivo and you could get an HD, two-tuner, sattelite box with Tivo built in, that was the best. Now it's just whoever has the package that works best for you. In any case, I vastly prefer satellite to cable.

    cable is slower than dish? What are you talking about upper? The programming is virtually the same. Not following you there. I just preferred Dish over Direct because of how the receivers functioned, and they seemed to have better PPV selection, but they both have on demand now I think. So Caps is correct whatever floats your boat as far as a package. I think I liked dish's packages better too. From what it looked like you could get with the different packages.

    If you have a stable place to mount the dish and it is not a hurricane coming through, it really is not as bad as it is made out to be as far as loosing signal. the key is having it mounted on a stable area of the house.

    The dish people say they spary something on the dish so rain just runs off it so they claim nothing will happen in a storm. The thing with cable is that they just keep raising the price and what do thay offer in return? They would not get the NFL network to start with. So it's time to get a dish.
