Direct TV has always been the biggest rip off of them all. Dish has always been a much better value. Direct TV also engages in fraud. When you visit their kiosk's in the mall, they have two TV sets on, one running Direct tv and the other running Dish. They intentionally lower the resolution on the Dish setup to make theirs look better. Total fraud.

We had directv for over 25 years but there price keeps going up. Dish doesn't have YES network. We got dish and listen to the ballgame on the radio.

I just switched to Dish after 10+ years with Directv cause of their constant price increases. They don't seem to care if you drop them. Saved $37 a month.

We were DirecTV subscribers for 22 years before we turned it off over pricing. We were paying over $200 for 4 receivers (1 in the RV), HD fee, DVR fees, etc. We're using DirecTVNow which is not great by any stretch of the imagination, but it's a lot cheaper. We also tried Playstation Vue, but liked the DirecTVNow lineup a little better.

DISH doesn’t charge extra for DVR and HD fees.. I pay $100/mo for our Hopper, one Joey and one 211 for the RV. No premiums, but lots of extra add ons for sports; ESPN U, SEC, etc.

Right now you can lock in two years of no increases and whatever else you can negotiate.

With all the changes and alternatives.....it is a bit too much for a Neo-Luddite like me (78 y/o) to figure it out. If Dish had NFL Sunday Ticket...I would switch. Home service is OK, except for the $$..and RV is always a hassle.

Its perdy simple in my book. Direct TV has been working fine for 25 yrs.
They want me to order the HD upgrade now, rather than wait till the 4-30-19 SD shutdown.
Now heres the simple part,......I ain't doin anything, and when the shutdown date arrives,.....and they actually do shut me down, I quit payin, simple as that. Curious to see how that goes.
Now if they want to get out here and update the needed equipment, and do it free of charge, I mite add, then there won't be any problem. But if they don't see it that way, it will be their loss. Either way, I got it figured out that I will win !

If you have only a Dish RV account (dish outside)not a add on to home account, you purchase the receivers, antenna and the dvr so there is no monthly fee for rental equipment.
