Had Time Warner cable previously......
***Had one outage for about 12 hours during a strong snowstorm here in Green Bay, WI...
***Have the TOP 120 package...miss a few channels like NGC, also have poor local weather forecasts compared to TW. cable......also fewer local channels than I had with cable.
***Didn't realize how it would be more complicated to hook my DVD player back up and to switch to antenna channels in case of an outage. The remote makes you a 'captive' to DISH, more or less.
***Am saving alot of monthly $$ compared to TW cable, on the order of $53 at this time.
***All in all, am glad I made the switch. Found some new channels I like and some of the music is good as well. Don't miss MSNBC at all...(:^).
