This system is a joke, Did you know if you have internet you can get 600 channels on your TV with a box that only cost $50 with no monthly fee. Go to www.ROKU.com and see. Shentel cable is a rip off They want to rob you. Dump them and get the ROKU box.... They are just a bunch of crooks from another state who want to sock it to us here in the mountains...

ROKU sounds really good but you have to realize that Frontier Communications supply the "broadband" to most of rural WV. Much too often, Frontier subscribers have trouble viewing any streaming content such as YouTube even at the lowest video quality. Our state and Frontier have mishandled Federal grants which were supposed to improve and expand WV's broadband availability. For many of us, Dish and DirecTV are the only options available for TV since there are no cable services.

Hopefully if this keeps on, Dish will be able to alternative them with the CBS position in Cincinnati. Dish customers and non Dish customers just want to see their recommended CBS shows.

Bray Cary would scream bloody murder if Dish attempts to offer an out-of-market station unless it's his pathetic WTRF-TV 7 in Wheeling (which has a terrible news bureau and on-air 'personalities', too)!
