Re: DirecTV form letter



Yeah, I've been a DirecTV customer since 1995 (one of the first in my town).
After talking with my wife and Southern Company offering its employees a
discount, I'm swapping.  Their programming is equivalent with only a couple
of channels not on Dish that DirecTV has.  Also, since the law concerning
local broadcast came out, DirecTV says the only programming I am authorized
to receive is from CBS and FOX.  Dish says I can get them all.  Looks like
I'll be swapping.

Bring on NASA TV!

73 es Merry Christmas,
Joel, K2SAT
