Does anyone use DirecTV? How do you like it, how's the signal?

I live in CA, so weather's not a big issue.

(LOL, there was a meteorologist here that went East on June 1st. Not much to report. He said, "Basically you could tape one generic broadcast and run it through to the Fall.)

1. All I know is my sister's (in GA) trees have so overgrown that she can't get a signal any longer...

So if you have heavy "canopy" over your house, that could be an issue--generally not for newer construction or for areas like where I live in Colorado. Me, I'm stuck with comcast--because I need the DSL and a minimal tv package comes with it. Satellite internet doesn't seem to be available in many areas....

My sister did like it--when she was able to get a signal, but storms cause a lot of outages.

2. I've enjoyed my DirecTv. Their customer service

Seems pretty easy to work with. I have issues with signal interference very rarely. It takes a HUGE thunderstorm to block the signal.

I like the whole-home dvr, too.

3. Beware - DirecTV just merged with AT&T

The merger has to be approved, but if it goes forward, DirecTV is only promising the same service for 3 years. It is expected then that everyone would have to buy the AT&T U-Verse package. I am not sure how this will impact service. The only reason I stay with DirecTV is the GREAT service. They always respond quickly to calls and are the best company I work with. Beware and be cautious until this all plays out.
