You need to remember that Direct TV is satellite TV and as such is more vulnerable to interference from weather conditions. Proper positioning of the satellite dish is required for receiving maximum signal, a shift of even 1 or 2 inches can cause loss of signal. If you go with it, I would suggest that you put alignment marks on all movable parts. That way if for some reason you lose signal, you can check the marks and see if your dish has shifted and if so, reposition it to the original settings.Don't count on it UNLESS they are willing to put it in writing. They're sales people are there to do 1 thing....make sales. They will tell you what you want to hear to make the sale. Without having it in writing, you have nothing to prove the promise was made.3) After 1 year, the prices will increase to about what I pay for Comcast. DirectTV said to just call them and they will easily give me whatever their current promotion is. Is this true??
