I've had direct tv for 4 years. I was recently at a Fall Festival in Plymouth, MI and a salesman approached me about Dish Network.
I was afraid to switch because we had decent service with Direct TV. Well, the installer Brent came over to install the new dish network dish (which may i add was a very nice guy and very knowledgable). The first thing we noticed was the picture quality (no we did not purchase the high def package). With all the rain we had i was sure the picture would go out as it did with just a bit of rain with direct tv.
It was storming and still had a picture! So far I LOVE DISH NETWORK and it's about $25 a month cheaper.
It was well worth the switch!
