I am really close to going with Dish I have been a Directv customer since 06. I called them today and they offered me the America's Top 200 (240+) with 3 HD DVR Receivers free installation, free HBO for 1 year and Dish Movie Pack for free for 3 months. Free installation and free activation. Dish Protection Services for 6 months free. Sports Package included until 1/2/18 and a free Amazon Echo. Some questions I have are as follow: The equipment with be the Hooper 2 with Joey receivers with sling. I have been reading about the Hooper 3 which is available but there is a one time cost of $53. What would you recommend as far as equipment? Is the Hooper 2 just as good? According to the rep the only real difference is number of tuners 16 to 3. The Dish Protection Silver plan is it worth $8.99? Anyone had any thoughts? The sports package will cost me $13 after 1/2/18. Will they discount that price at all if you call them? Any other thoughts or recommendations would be helpful.
