    I have Dish and Frontier for internet. I went to their website to see if there were any savings and all I see is Directv.

    Yeah, if you go to, it shows the DirecTV deals. But if you go to, it shows Dish deals.

    It seems they are selling both...

    Funny, the news release doesn't mention Clayton is a former president and CEO of Frontier Communications. See this thread.

    They are based on the area - for instance, in Muskegon MI you will have DirecTV offers but in Morrison, IL you will have DISH offers.

    That's what I have too. Home phone through Frontier, TV through DirecTV (bundled with home phone) and internet through Time Warner.
