Dish Network BLOWS!!. They have a ton of "add on"charges and their equipement is weak. Plus their sales rep lied to me. He promised me I could addd regional Fox Sports later but when I went to do it they said it was not avaialble in Iowa. I would call Direct TV and tell them what kind of deal that Dish Network is offering. Then tell them they need to match it. They usually will match it IF you tell them honsetly what the other is offering.
