I got the dish originally because it was cheaper than cable. They installed it quickly, and hid the dish pretty well. The service would go in and out during a storm. Was the biggest pain to try to hook up an HD TV, they gave me the run around and so I just switched to cable. Then they wanted me to climb up on my roof, and remove part of the dish and send it back to them in the middle of winter - I have an extremely tall roof and could never get up there if I wanted to.
