I just switched to DISH after 22 years with DIRECTV. So far the Hopper 3 is great! There were a number of reasons I switched. Anyone else have any? 1. When HD TV came along DIRECTV discontinued their TiVO DVR's and forced customers to switch to their proprietary DVR (the Genie). 2. Later when TiVO was offered, it was a watered down TiVO without whole home DVR. This insured it would not compete with the Genie. 3. DISH and TiVO DVR's offer advanced technology but it seems lately that Genie is no longer cutting edge. 4. AT&T purchased DIRECTV and immediately eliminated any discounts. My monthly bill, with no premium channels, went up to over $150 a month. 5. AT&T customer service was poor. Difficult to get to the correct department. Who was I was talking to? AT&T Mobility, U-Verse, or DIRECTV? 6. The final straw. AT&T pushed out a software update for Genie with a rebranded interface. There were lots of graphics which made menu's slow to load.
