Jeez that was a dumb move. On top of buying 700 dollars worth of equipment and then a year contract, dealing with outages when it rained, choppy movies and DVR, slow ass internet (DSL) and a phone we never use (the home phone), I got sick of paying 240 a month for this crap. Called Suddenlink and for 132 a month I get 2 HD DVRs, 8MBit (unrestricted, just straight TCPIP DHCP) cable modem and all the HD + digital channels (besides HBO and whatnot) for only 132 a month. No contract either, no equipment to buy. Never will I get satellite again.
