You could get away with a 6' dish, but an 8' or 10' would be better. It would be best if someone came out and surveyed your area, to make sure there were no tall trees or other impediments, blocking your line of sight to the satellites. There are a good number of music channels and there is some weather, plus oldies and locals. I see the station Reelz is in HD, on one of the birds in the clear. It's a movie service. There is lots of variety up there. Lots of interesting wild feeds, as well. Good hunting, if you plan on going the C Band route. Personally, I've had both Dishnet, Directv, Expressvu and Shaw Direct, on DBS. The best toy that I ever owned, was a C Band dish.
Well i am looking for not paying the other people, Comcast, Direct, Dish, i want to be free! I do not watch to much but old stuff is cool, i watch local stations , i like the weather station, would love to have my Music stations, or Music videos! thats all and able to record stuff if i want to record it maybe some sports too.. what size of dish do i need?

3'-4' dish is good for KU (college sports feeds, news feeds, couple of other channels)
6' dish is good for KU, and for DVB-S C band stations. You will get very few DVB-S2 stations.
10' and up is good for DVB-S2. I personally would go no smaller than 10' if you want S2 stations.
Havent tried 8 or 9 footers.
