Maybe it's time for you to look at dish.
The disconnect with me is that loyal, longtime customers like myself are paying more for frequently inferior service (e.g. no whole-home vs. a $400 upgrade) and inferior equipment (two-generation-old HR-21 receivers vis a vis a $200 upgrade to a newer receiver and no chance at getting the HR-34) than unproven, new customers, who get all of this at no cost to them.
I'm not sure about the unproven. They do check credit history and require a credit card on file.
