I'm a long time DirecTV customer getting ready to move to a new home. I called today to make arrangements to relocated with DirecTV. I was reviewing the confirmation email and noted that it indicated that the home would need a phone line and internet available for the installation to proceed.
I'm quite sure that the phone line is no longer necessary (which is good as I don't plan on having a landline phone at the new home). Does Internet need to be available at the new home at the time of installation?
I plan to have Internet established, but the home I'm moving to has poor DSL speeds. So, for the first time for me, I'm going to have to go with a cable modem. Given that I'm not sure about the wiring, I figured I'd have DirecTV come setup their resources and then have the cable company come out and set up for cable internet. I'm starting to wonder if I need to rethink that.
For my equipment, I have a Genie and an HD DVR.
