    The few times that D*TV stopped working we just caught up on recorded shows. It only seems to affect the HD channels so it's not like we are completely out.

    Mine has gone out maybe 2 or 3 times in 18 months and it has been raining here this summer like I'm in Seattle. Unfortunately, some people still think it is 1985, but I've not been bothered at all even the couple of times we did lose signal. Like you, I just went into my multi-TB dvr and watched one of my hundreds of shows/movies...lol

    I pretty much only watch AMC, IFC, TCM, Sundance, BBC America, and Comedy Central.

    Last I heard, Dish doesn't even carry AMC any more, and they were losing IFC too.

    I'll stick with my Uverse simply for AMC since I like Hell on Wheels & Breaking Bad better than anything else right now.

    Yeah, I simply could not and would not pay for a cable/dish provider that didn't give me AMC. Breaking Bad and Mad Men are the best shows of their generation, and I'm not going to miss them because Dish Network doesn't want to pay for them. Totally down to one's priorities, but this is not negotiable for me.

    Dude, Breaking Bad is all over the internet. It really isn't worth living with an inferior service just to hang onto one good show.

    Pretty sure I've had it for almost a year now here in OK, where we get wicked storms, and only had it go down once. I just watched something on the DVR. So shut yer face.

    My Dish would quit working just before it rained and start working about the time the rain really got going good...

    Got a UHF antenna with an amp in the attic and NetFlix now...

    MikeL, if you work for Dish, which I assume you do, what is the best deal on the TOP 120 package right now? I have 4 TVs I would like to hook up to the service.

    After 4months of usage I can still say its the best service available. I haven't had one minute of outage.

    If I had to gripe about anything I would say:
    1- renting movies suck compared to att. We used to rent 4 or more movies a month, now maybe 1. I prefer now just to rent off my ps3 or amazon prime.

    2- networked connection needs reset all the time off both of my Hoppers. No big deal but annoying.

    Overall still a 9\10. Poor VOD service cost you allot of money if other people are like me.

    We hated to have seen you go and I appreciate your feedback about the signal! Had we ever gotten a technician out there to take a look at it and try to fix it? Was any type of troubleshooting done? Please let me know so I can get some more details from you. Thank you very much for your efforts and I hope to hear from you!

    I'm very glad to hear you've been enjoying your experience here with DISH! If you have internet or a phone line hooked up to your receiver, you should be able to purchase as many VOD movies as you wish up to your credit limit on your account. I can check this for you, as well as what we can do about the issue with the connectivity of your Hopper, if you could please private message me your account number. I appreciate your efforts and look forward to hearing from you!

    I live in Seattle and have yet to have my dish crap out due to rain. We rarely see storms here though - just constant drizzle.

    Looks fine, and we have had some very heavy rain, with heavy cloud cover, and the picture has been perfect.
