    Pretty sure I know the answer to this but positive someone here will know. I'm currently with Dish and am looking to upgrade my equipment which will require a new 2 year hitch. If I had the choice I'd rather be with DirecTV but can't get their signal as my neighbor has huge trees blocking the sight line so I can only get Dish's EA signal. Before I re-up with Dish, is there any chance that DirecTV will be providing signals from locations similar to Dish's EA (or from anywhere else for that matter) within the next two years (or ever)?

    No chance in the foreseeable future.

    Well first off which sats do you use now with dish network? 61.5/72.7/77 east arc or 110/119/129 west arc? Then you have to ask yourself if you need 110/119 at all. The LOS window is ALOT smaller if all you need is 99/101/103 compared to a few years ago when you needed 101/110/119. Directv gave me a slimline 5 in late 06 which gave me only 1 option on where to mount it due to trees but since then i replaced my sl5 lnb with a sl3 lnb which let me mount it where i wanted it instead of where it had to be.

    You have to ask yourself if "I can only get Dish's EA signal" means that anything west of 77W (including 101W) is not an option.

    habsfan66: Are you sure there isn't somewhere on your property that you can get the 99, 101, and 103 sats?
