Thanks man, I will be looking further into this. I don't want a 2 year contract. I wouldn't mind 1 year but not two. Two years is to long to contract a service IMO. Technology changes, deals change, quality changes and I want the smallest commitment possible. If something new or better comes out, or if I start having crappy service or support I want out pronto.
Hopefully Dish will be able to work with me. As long as the up front price isn't totally outrageous, I'll probably go with them over DTV.
