Hi everyone:

Newbie to the forum, but not new to DirecTV. I have the Choice Xtra & Sports packages. About the only major "gripe" I could say I have (If you could call it a gripe) is the overkill of FSN programming and the simulcast of the same sporting event on virtually every single FSN outlet, but I can only assume this is done to appease every sports fan out there. So when this happens, I just find another channel to watch.

But ohh well....What can one do I suppose....

Aside from that, I really can't complain about the DirecTV offerings compared to those of Comcast. I even had Playboy TV till it just became too expensive for me to keep (Comcast treats Playboy TV like a soft porn PPV service). Beyond that, I wish The101 was a little more ehh...."Entertaining" (Looks kinda bland IMO).

Anyway....Just wanted to introduce myself.

Cheers :)

:welcome_s to the forum.

I keep having Bruce Springsteen's "57 channels and nothing on" running through my head. It doesn't seem to matter how many channels I get. :lol:

Hi everyone:

Thanks for the welcome guys!

I wasn't sure just where exactly to post my intro. and this place didn't seem to be the place based on the topics of the threads, but alas that's the way it goes sometimes. Ohh well. ;)

If I had to do the conversion from cable to satellite all over again, it'd be to the C or KU-band dishes you can get some REALLY cool stuff on there. ;)

My mom is still on Crapcast cable though, but that's because we both live in an apartment building (Different apartments though) and her apartment faces the North, but when she's in my apartment (Which faces the South), she's not afraid to scan the guide every once in awhile for some of her favorite channels (e.g. HGTV, DIY, shopping channels, etc.). :)

But anyways....Thanks for the welcome! I look forward to participating more in the discussions. :)

Cheers :)
