Assuming Dish doesn’t pick up SportsNet New York and Direct TV does, I would most likely make my jump. I currently have one DVR 522 that allows me to view television independently on two TVs. I subscribe to the Everything Pack w/locals with warranty and DVR lease fee ($99.98). If I came over to DTV, what equipment would I need to receive equivalent service and what would be my monthly cost. Thanks in advance.

DirecTV doesn't have a reciever that allows Independnt viewing on two TVs.
You would need at least two recievers.

The current DVR is the R15, but there are some other models still floating around out there.

The "Everything" package price, is about the same...
