I don't have a home phone either. Ditched it 7 years ago and have never missed it.

Channel 23 also has some decent movies, believe it or not. But it's low power so you'll probably need an outdoor antenna to pick it up where you are. Its on cable, but it comes in okay with a loop antenna where I am.

Bounce 23 W23BZ - It's a black network, but most of the movies are pretty mainstream ... Passenger 57, Coming to America, Nutty Professor, etc.... Saw one with kurt Russell, where they rescue the hijacked plane recently.

Few years back, I had Dish and it went out more than it was on so when ATT called selling U verse, sounded better than Dish so I signed up.
I called Dish to cancel and they sent me a cardboard box with instructions to return the box and wires.
WELLLLLLLLLLLL,
COULDN'T GET THE CONNECTING WIRES OFF THE BOX
Had others try and they wouldn't budge.
Then the instructions sheet said to get a small part that's on the dish itself on the roof!
WHAT????
I called and told them I wasn't going to get on a ladder and get the small part, and if it was so important to them come get it themselves! GRRRRRR
Being so frustrated, I stuffed the cable box with the wires attached in the box, bulging at the seams, I brought it to UPS.
The freakin dish is still on the roof.....evidently they don't want it back.
Love the U verse!

Ha ha ha ha!!! I'd have asked someone to get on the roof and take a sledge hammer to the dish and ship it back that way. Have a few friends who, with the promise of a few beers or a packs of cigs, would have taken me up on the offer.

Apparently they don't care about the dish. I've seen several sitting at the curb on trash day and even seen them in yard sales!

I would have to repair the roof from the holes if I have it taken down, so it stays.....for now.
Lol
Better yet, if and when I sell my house, I will leave it for the next occupant to decide...who knows, they may get DISH!

That dish is about $3 worth of steel and the LNB (the thing in the middle) can be bought for $5 new. Not worth the effort.

I figured it was worthless...they never came for it.
They probably would have asked me to take it off the roof had it been worth $$$$. Lol
No wonder...all the equipment lost to canceled accounts and cable prices sky high.
