They’ve got some great deals for two year programs, you can also get $55 off the bill when your contract is up by calling in to cancel service.

Only thing I really hate about them is out of the hundred of channels they brag about in every package there are a ton of qvc type channels.

Other complaint is weather related interference but our dish is set up with a strong signal so we don’t get much interference except on the worst weather days, friends of ours have either too many trees or building too close to get a good view of the sky they constantly complain about service.

We pay more for the package to get the Smithsonian channel.

We got hbo and showtime for the next few months for free because the dvr we had had a crappy defect where it lost connection to the wireless bridge for the Genie mini several times a week, we’d have to restart the main receiver to get it to work again. Turned out it was a software defect and luckily our tech got permission to replace it with a newer dvr. Att will not give you a upgrade every two years unless the headwear fails. And this is paying for their warranty every month. Technically our old dvr didn’t fail it was a known glitch we got a curtsy replacement and since our dvr model was old they gave us the new model. Which has a great picture we also like the Genie mini too.

We watch science, history and nat geo wild a lot. Smithsonian is really great too it’s one of the channels we had to have

History has some GREAT stuff on there-I'm a bit of a history buff and I like their shows a lot.

So I've had DirectTV for a little bit(less than a couple of hours)and I'n in love!

I like direct tv better than uverse or other services like cable.
New dvr the picture was really clear we’ve got a 4k tv but I’m talking about 1080p and it look good on the bedroom tv which is a cheap led I bought when I was on my own years ago.

Oh, the travel Chanel we also watch a lot. Strange how it’s become a kind of cooking channel with so many shows on food.

Yeah-a bit of a hybrid-it's one of the channels I *don't* get but I kinda prefer the Food Network so there you go!

I can’t remember the name of the show but this guy goes all over looking into legends. It’s on all the time. Expedition unknown or something like that
