Do you have Dish or Directv? Why did you choose the one you have? Thanks.

Neither. Read a book.

Have had both. Direct TV has a lot of special sports packages, but i think the better deal by just a few bucks is Dish. They are about the same unless you have specialized needs.

Dish, but their customer service is lousy, doubt if Direct is any better.

Dish, and I've never had any problems with their customer service.

Dish. Had a long awful nightmare with Direct that was only solved by BBB, took weeks of hard emailing/letter writing,etc.

DIRECTV. I love it and you get more bang for the buck.

We had a BIG nightmare with Direct that ended up with the BBB and the state consumer protection agency,etc. Got our money back, but what a hassle.

We do cable phone, internet and TV. Love it. No ugly dish.

I am on DISH now. I was on DirecTV for many years, but when I needed to move the dish, DirecTV would do nothing to help - until after I had signed a contract with DISH. Then DirecTV kept calling and calling and calling trying to get me back. Too bad - they had their chance.

DISH has a system in place to upgrade your equipment. They have a system for moving and they have a system for equipment protection (our LNB keeps getting messed up). While I was with DirecTV they had nothing like that that they let the customer know about.

BUT all that said - try calling each for their best deals and play them off against each other!

I've had both, started with Direct TV. Couldn't get local channels with them, so we switched. I still miss Tanya Memme.
