Switching from dish today. Went to local showroom yesterday (1 Hr drive) worth every minute. Got to play with all the new equipment, check everything out, ask all my questions, and they will be here today. Getting 2 Hr24s and 1 SD receiver, MRV, and internet connected. Cost me $100. They even applied my refer a friend discount, so all I had to do when I got home was apply for the rebates. Much better than trying to do it over the phone. They told me not to sign up for protection plan just call them for problems and they will come out for no charge. Also said if box or remote go bad just stop in and they will swap it out free. Got it all in writing, very excited can't wait. Well worth traveling and doing business with the locals.
