Anybody using USDTV

Hi,
I am seeing this ad for USDTV(available only in certain areas). You have to get a spl equipment for that, which is available in WalMart. It says that u can get all the channels like HGTV,CNN and all local channels for $19.99(I think). I was thinking of getting that since to get HGTV and other like channels you have to pay $44. Has anybody used/using it? Do you like it? Your opinions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you...

I'll be watching this thread; I have a brick home and the cable people want a fortune for installation. There are also finished ceilings, etc. that would interfere with the installation on the inside. Don't want it that bad!

But a piece of equipment I could buy? Now, that I like!

I just Googled it and found their site. When I put in my zip code, it said it wasn't available in my area.

So now it is back to considering DISH's Family Pack, for $19.95. I'll have to check and see just what channels it includes first. There is no equipment to buy and no installation fee, but 'probably' requires a year's contract.

When I attempt to reply to some of those offers, and try to enter a 6 digit/numeral Postal Code, (plus a space) they cut me off before I get to the end.

So I take it that they want only U.S.-originated business.

Leaving us guys in the northern climes ...

oj,

Possibly you could call them at the numbers listed on the link below, and get the scoop.

You suppose the US stands for United States?

Phone was answered.

They offer service only 4 midwestern cities.

Live in them - or you're out of luck.

Well, maybe not.

They're looking for service providers in many other cities.

If you're interested, send them your bona fides.

No doubt I'll be in that long-term hole in the ground before they get around to providing service in this area.

Oh, I forgot - I'm considering cremation: residue takes up less ground-space.

Question: If my kids scatter my remains on the garden ...

... could they be charged with cannibalism for eating their Dad???

(Did I say that??)

Have yourself a great week.

We subscribe to the local cable company and upon installation I demanded the least expensive package. After much hedging they finally gave up the goods. We pay 13 a month for basic basic, including discover, tlc, hgtv, foodtv, scifi, family, disney, tbs, tnt, etc. Not bad, right? We don't do outside movies or magazines, this satisfies both.

Jasileet,
Now thats a deal! But did they come and install anything or did they just use your existing cable connection?
And by local company do you mean USDTV or like Comcast, etc?
Thanks!

Hey Patilrajashri, It was Comcast. There was one line pre-existing and we added splitters ourselves. No box needed.
