When I was staying with my parents when we were younger we had DirecTV. We actually got jacked on a lot of things from that company because the Customer Service didn't bother to explain their services correctly to my mother. When they asked if she wanted some of the channels or not trying to "customize" our options - they were actually taking off channels we would have gotten for free and my mom thought they meant something we had to pay extra for.
I have heard a lot of good things about Dish Network but we went without any TV when I moved for awhile. Now we have signed up for Dish and I am pretty happy about it so far. I hope that their service aligns with what i have heard. Sometimes I don't know if TV is worth paying for at times but we have children here. It should be cool for them to have TV options.
