      Lock in your Direct TV contracts now.

      Cancelling my direct tv as soon as this is announced. ATT is a HORRIBLE company and directv fudged up big time. Regretfully I will be handing my money over to the ONLY OTHER PROVIDER IN MY AREA Time Warner Cable….. The lesser of two evils.

        TWC will become Comcast since the FCC chairman is in their back pocket. The U.S. consumer is going to drown in even more overpriced, underperforming internet bills soon.

      Dish is better anyway. Much better hardware.

      Don’t switch to Dish Network too quickly as they may offer a deal to attract customers who now want to switch.

      I don’t look forward to AT&T messing up the great picture quality I get from DirecTV. I’ve seen U-Verse and it is horrible compared to DirecTV… Not happy.

      Just give the no-TV a go. I haven’t had TV in 4 years. I got used to it right away and it was the perfect excuse to get the fastest internet connection available. Just a suggestion :D
