I know this is a question that has been asked before, but most all of the topics I've seen were outdated and didn't quite cover my concerns. I've never had satellite and am a bit leery of a 2 yr contract that I currently am not required to keep I'm satisfied with my COX content but am looking to cut costs. My main question is with all of the current promos, will I actually save money after the switch? I currently have internet and digi cable (1 HD DVR). I also have a total of 8 TVs. I don't pay any monthly extras for the addl tvs as they have SD content. I do pay for a lease on the DVR. D* will give me a $30 monthly credit/mo for a year, 1 free HDDVR and 3 HD receivers. This would be great to have addl HD service and in 1080 instead of my current 720, but not a requirement. Is this even something D* can do? I don't want a large upfront cost or any increase in monthly cost. I would consider adding an additional DVR and possibly going with the Whole Home idea. One of the TVs is 100 ft away from where the dish would be and in a separate building, but has a current line run out there. Would this create any problems for D? I have an old home with coax run to everywhere I want a TV, but no Cat 5 lines or HDMIs run. I operate all internet connections in the house with a wireless internet connection. Would this be a problem? Does D* offer any internet options? (where I could bundle and save) Does making the switch sound like it is for me? or should I just suck it up and pay the outrageous cable fees? Any suggestions, things I'm missing or need to know?
