Direct TV or Dish Network Lap?

Edit: I should say, Why Direct TV over Dish Network?
Well, I went with DirecTV for a couple of reasons. One, I needed three receivers and they were the only one of the two companies offering a three receiver deal at the time. And two, Dish was requiring people to subscribe to HBO/Cinemax along with the basic package of channels for a year or whatever and I didn't want to be forced into a premium package. I pay for one premium package a month on DirecTV and you can switch that package between the Sports , Starz, HBO, Cinemax, and the Showtime packages once a day with no fees. Don't know if Dish allows that or not, but I can watch a different package a day for the whole month for just $12. I like that immensely. And yes, you absolutely will want a dish over cable. My old cable company sucked worse than Jeff Shantz with the puck on his stick in front of the net. There is nothing I miss about cable compared to satellite.
