DirecTV by far. Has local channels and HD.

Dish will screw you. They start you off with a lot of good channels then they start dropping them and adding Latino channels, the NASA channel, and other useless stuff like that. They did this to me and when I called to complain they said that they were holding up their end by providing me with 200+ channels.

Suddenstink makes you pay for tons of religious garbage that is packaged in a few good channels.

Dish promises local channels, but then when the guy gets to your house to install, he gives you the bad news that they can't get authorization for your house, etc etc. Bait and switch.

I cant comment on Direct because I never tried it, as my family dropped television totally, and we spend more time doing activities. When we want, we see a great movie at the theater or rent one to take home. If everyone would do that, the cable/satelite rates would plummet. PS, we all lost some weight, and are getting trimmer - we feel better - and we are happier.

TV reception didn't go out once during the horrible winter with Dish Network. They now have local channels. I'm sticking with them.

We have dish network, and we are upset with them. We were told when we went with them that we would have the local stations, abc, nbc, cbs. The installer came out and started telling us we wouldn't get abc, and i was like what? we were told we would. I call dish and they keep saying they are in negotiations, well how long does this take? They are impossible to deal with other the phone. We are considering going back to directtv. Any suggestions?
We like Dish's prices better than Direct's. Get ABC through All American Direct. Dish can give you the number.

We have Dish,its OK, but to high for what you get. Its DISH all american $108.00 a month for 250 channels, plus momax, showtime, HBO, stars etc. are included. Still seems not much on to watch and the shows are shown over and over.
had both

I've had both, switched when Dish lost networks. Direct can in and we had no problem getting them. All have thier pros and cons. I liked the remote features with dish and how the channels showed a different color if you didn't get recieve them. Direct gives free movie or sports chennels as appreciating for being a loyal customer. never had suddenlink, not available here.
i have better
