Another great video. Anyone know what the difference was with the three different receiver models?
And I wonder how much longer did the big dishes last? I bet they saw the writing on the wall.
wow !! I already signed up for the ussb channel package from the first video.
the sony unit with two boxes. one thing that set sony apart was the signal finder on the dish vs the rca wich did not have that. but then again there was a difference in price to

i belive voom was owned by cable vision the dish bought em out and took there channels
DISH bought their satellite and licenses and contracted with Cablevision to continue their HD channels to help boost the DISH HD channel lineup. Unfortunately Cablevision allowed the Voom channels to stagnate and regular channels introduced enough of their own HD content that the channels were no longer needed. So yes, DISH bought Cablevision's ("Rainbow DBS") satellite system but they did not buy the "Voom" channels.
Waited 2 years after these informercials came out. Bought my first dish and receiver for $89 at The Wiz. A nice Toshiba
that The Wiz substituted for the RCA’s they ran out of during a Labor Day sale in 1997. That was considered a giveaway back then. Bought it for Sunday Ticket of course. To get the NHL they made me buy a base package. Sunday Ticket was a stand alone purchase then. I had cable and DTV at the same time. Eventually cut the cable and stuck with D*. Now with AT&T it’s a mess. Picture stability and quality has gone down on certain stations. Skipping frames on certain Sunday Ticket games really pisses me off. Not all games, just the ones with no bandwidth left for I guess. Anyway, I miss the real Directv.

Well since we're playing this nostalgia game....
Yes! I had an Ultimate TV DVR and those were the best DVR’s. I had to run a second cable in order to record two shows at once. They had PIP with PIP buttons on the remote!
D* should have bought that software from Microsoft and used it for their in house DVR’s.
Awe the good ole days........
My family never had dtv.
In 1997 mayslanding, NJ. We were the 1st to get digital cable. And it was no longer true that dtv was the only way for the same programming.
We have everything like dtv. With one up
Music choice. Which is still on cable and free on big satellite.
Can't say that about direct TV today.
I only use my big satellite . And we get free previews every now and then.
Epix. Also NFL ,MLB AND HLN. And we even had free premium TV for over a year open and in the clear.
That was probably people testing Orby.
So. Big satellite is still god.
better if you'll user words as "C-band", "BUD" what everyone is understand
Words "big satellite" are means something what you don't know and shouldn't use.
Use "big dish" please. Or short BUD !
