Description of service

This plan includes 120 channels plus a movie channel package and individual network channels. We also received 4 receivers, 4 remotes, and service in 4 rooms.

The equipment and installation were free when ordering service for 4 rooms. We also received a free DVR. The main package costs about $35 per month and each additional room is about $5 per month. The movie channel package is around $12 and the networks cost about $1.50 each.

Total with tax, about $70 per month.

*We also received a coupon for $10 off per month for three months.

Review of Service

When we ordered the service, they came out quickly and installed the new equipment. The serviceman did a nice job and was very polite when in our home. The service was turned out immediately and worked great.

The audio and visual quality are excellent.

The biggest complaint we've had is difficulty with networks. This is an issue we've come across with various satellite providers. In a rural area, if it is believed that you can receive a certain station with a regular antenna, you cannot purchase the same network from another area.

We wanted a network from up North but were told we could not purchase it because there is a "local" affiliate. Unfortunately, that "local" channel is in the next state, 150 miles away, and we cannot receive their signal even with an antenna. Since they think we should be able to, we can't purchase the other channel, which we want to keep up with news and sports from our where we grew up.


If you are interested in network channels, find out the details in advance. Check into your local stations ahead of time, or ask about a waiver. Some local stations will give a waiver while others will not, but it doesn't hurt to check.
