Ya know your right I didn't even think of that. I can't switch back until January anyway. So I guess I'll just sit back and see what happens. My Mom's contract ends 10/5 and she is thinking about going back to directv. I'm just waiting for the series 2 dtivo's to come out. Maybe they will have some deals.In all seriousness, though, Dish appears to be adding LIL to areas where Directv doesn't have them, in order to posture for the proposed merger and show how many different LIL's could be in use if the merger were approved.
