I know these commercials (and others in the same vein) are tongue in cheek, but I feel that Idiocracy is only a matter of time.

They gave me free Showtime and The Movie Channel for a year. I also just changed from Charter to AT&T U-verse for my internet. I did that through Direct, by doing so I got the AT&T U-verse advertised $48 per month service for $29 and Direct is giving me $10 off my Direct bill for a year for making the change.

You may be able to save some $$ just by calling Direct.
the phone company has said i would get dish for like half price and some free movie channels for 6 months or something like that and a $450 credit toward apple stuff,but i didn't ask them for how long of a contract,i will call direct and see if they will come off some freebies

I live in Thorn Hill Tn,the other side of the mountain from Bean Station lol, so it has to be a satellite provider,let me know what ya'll think of Dish.oh and which way does the actual dish have to be pointed too?,if you know,there is a very tall ridge straight up behind my house,blocking the south,
Dish doesn't have a great rep, but the founder is a Tennessee Grad

Direct TV, though I personally stick with cable because the area I live in is very windy. I have a few neighbors with either Direct or Dish, and losing signal is a regular occurence.

You have to go with directv if you want overall better tv and better equipment. I work with both companies daily and I would hands down take directv over dish
