I've enjoyed learning about the different services, I avoided the satellite companies for years, assuming the worst from them, till I did this research. Now I know more and understand the technologies etc, I'm glad to have gotten this much information and knowledge. The whole while, its been in my gut that its just not the right time to make the switch, and even though I did go ahead and get signed up, something still made me wonder and second guess, but it wasn't because I didn't like or trust D*, it was something else in my gut...well this was it, the house move came clear and that was all I needed to solidify my doubts. If all goes smooth and we are moved in a few months, I'll be enjoying D* for the NBA finals, and all the good summer shows.

Deer Creek and Edmond are the likely spots, my wife is wanting Deer Creek for the school district. You're right it might be a while, but still we've decided to wait. I guess we'll see what they try to tell me when I call.

I found out today that a buddy at work just moved from Deer Creek to the Piedmont district (around 122nd between Council & County Line). His wife wants the daughter to graduate from Piedmont. Usually you hear about folks moving to the Deer Creek district rather than away. Is Deer Creek getting too big already?

Just my 2 cents on the subject - if you plan on moving I would wait to get setup with DirecTV. If you setup now and move in lets say 3 months - they will ask $200 for a tech to come reinstall at the new residence.

On another note, the 44 is going to be amazing (my co-worker is in BETA) but not when its launched nationally - I would wait a good 6 months to ensure all the bugs are worked out. DTV learned their lesson with the Genie and C31 clients and wont be pre-mature in releasing the 44 until their confident in its operation.
To each his own...

Yeah, I think Deer Creek is getting big, too fast, like Edmond back in the day, so Piedmont is like the less busy but still good area. I don't know much more than that, its all generalizations. I haven't spent much time in either, but Deer Creek is directly north of where I am now, and there are all kinds of schools going up.

Agreed, and this is what I've done, I figure by the time I've sold my house, moved and ready for D* install, the HR44 should be out there and part of the daily installs.
