    SiriusXM has a few Howard free options, in case blocking the channel or simply not tuning to it isn't good enough.

    Exactly! We like the "Mostly Music" plan that's low cost and has just what it says, mostly music. And no Howard Stern...

    I just called Orby TV they have a special self install kit with receiver $ 100 and I asked the question how many. You can have 4 receivers on one account for $ 40 a month !!

    I took a quick look at Orby and I love how their DVR box integrates OTA with satellite.
    Something I may consider if they get more channels.

    I am interesting in getting satellite TV again. The installation offer for ORBY from the website for a 1 room DVR with installation is $225. To me, that's a good price and there is no contract.

    Anyone know what kind of antenna (for locals) they provide? Could I provide the installer another one, if the one they provide doesn't provide reception adequately? One channel I want is low VHF and might be difficult to receive. I was calling some local dealers for quotes and getting an outdoor antenna installed in my area is $250 alone. Orby is offering a satellite dish and antenna for that price.

    I like that the Orby $40/month package includes TCM, TBS, Hallmark and TV Land.

    Another option I was considering is going with Dish Network's AT 120. I see that is $59.99/month for 24 months, but what is the price people without a 24 promotion are paying for AT120? Does Dish Network's installation include an over the air antenna with a dish antenna as well?

    I'm not sure what antenna Orby TV installs. With Dish Network they don't install an antenna because locals are satellite delivered. If you go here you can see all the packages Dish offers at their regular price including locals. AT120 is $84.99/mo with locals and each additional TV is $7/mo and a Hopper DVR is $15/mo. (During the first two years additional TVs are $5/mo and the Hopper DVR charge is $10/mo.) If you have your own antenna already installed you can get a dongle from Dish that hooks up to a Hopper DVR allowing you to pull locals OTA and integrate them into the guide. Then you can call Dish have them remove the satellite delivered locals from your bill which reduces the cost of all packages by $12/mo.

    Now after the 24 month period with Dish you could always ask them if the Flex Pack is still available. For $54.99/mo at regular price with locals ($42.99/mo without locals) it also has TCM, TBS, Hallmark and TV Land included.
