I will likely stick with Dish in the new house as it is the most cost effective option and I have lots of unwatched DVR-ed material - some on the DVR, much on an external HDD
I'm considering the Dish Pause that I've heard of as I assume that means I get to keep the equipment and therefore maintain my archive of stuff. However I have considered canceling so that we I re-sign up in 5-6 months I might get a good deal on new equipment (hopper or something like that). Maybe add some additional TVs (right now just using the one unit to run 2 TVs), or SLING. Obviously I'd loose the stuff on my DVR, but would the External HDD stuff remain accessible if I connect it to a new model receiver? I remember reading once that it might not. Anyone confirmed this?
Am also concerned about how I deal with the actual satellite. I'd like to take advantage of Dish Mover, but the installation at the new location wouldn't happen for 5-6 months. Can I get a Dish Mover combined with a Pause? Or should I just remove the Dish myself. (I hate heights! )
