.... dumped directv, going to dish .... Me too, 5 years ago or so. Now cut the cord club.
Used to be DirecTV was independent company. Pretty good service until gobbled up with evil AT&T. AT&T=Jerks. Almost sure DishNetwork will joined DirecTV path .... probably next year.
Anyho, both DirecTV & Dish weak link, weather (past experience).
BTW in the near future, DirecTV and Dish satellites will be idle. Another space junk. Why? ... because 99.9% people will join TV streaming signal.
May will continue to join the streaming world but currently it is much higher than %0.01 that do not have access to enough internet speed to even consider this.
