Hi, I used to be a Direct TV subscriber (cancelled in 2006). I have old used equipment in my house. I am part of the Cablevision/Fox mess and really want to see the games this weekend. I hooked up the receiver and my program guide does load so the dish appears to be working and receiving a signal. Will DTV offer a reinstatement (understand I will pay full price for the plan) without a 2 year contract? Is there anyway around this policy. Have thought long and hard about getting D again but always had rain fade probelms, antenna is on highest part of roof (always worried if D* went out in the middle of the Winter. Loved the service but with the negatives can't see myself committing for 2 years). Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
