I used Dish ten years ago and DirectTV after that, then switched to cable last year. The cable service and DVR were both awful, and the only reason I stayed with it was the very low price I got for the first year. But now the year is up, and they are raising their price to about the same as the satellite companies, so I want to switch back. Problem is, I plan to move this year, and from what I found by looking at their websites, both Dish and DirectTV now seem to require a two-year commitment. Googling around I found something called Flex, which is evidently a 3rd party vendor for Dish, but I'd rather deal direct. So my questions are: 1) Is there a way to get satellite service direct from Dish or DTV without a contract longer than six months? 2) If not, does moving to a new address allow you to terminate without penalty? I don't know whether I'll be able to continue service at the new address, because I might move into an apt while I'm looking for a house. Thanks for any help.
