    This is awesome for someone who is planning on signing up already...I don't think (even for 25K miles) I would enter into another contract with the satellite vendors (if I can help it).

    I hear ya. I would not switch to satellite either but if you're looking to do so it's a nice offer. From what I recall, anyone with satellite seems to lose service or have delays with any bit of rain or wind!

    I don't have too much trouble (only in heavy rain), but I am month to month now and would cancel the whole thing if my wife wasn't so crazy for basketball! :rolleyes:

    That is pretty funny! Maybe the service has improved in recent years? I don't really know anyone that has it anymore...

    Its all in the dish pointing and signal strength...well and also your relative position geographically in the US in relation to geosynchronous orbit of the satellites. ;)

    LOL - that's the opposite problem that I have. We dropped cable after basketball season, but once it comes around again (especially college), I might go nuts without something. However, 24 month contract? How much is the early cancellation fee? If the miles posted within the first 120 days as they indicate, I think it would be completely worth paying a $200 early term fee for 25k miles - unless they either don't post the miles for 2 years, or somewhere in the T&C they say that they can revoke the miles if you don't fulfill the entire contract.

    I used to work for RCA when the set top boxes for DirecTV first came out, and you're exactly right about the dish pointing. If you do the work yourself and are meticulous in your setup, with a 90-95 signal strength in clear conditions, then you're going to be MUCH better off with regard to signal quality in bad weather. "Pro" installers were a joke in the late 90's thru the mid 2000's, as they were sending any 16 year old they could find to be an "authorized installer". They'd get the picture up, signal in the low to mid 80's in perfect weather, and then customers would get ticked when a cloud went over their house and their signal started clipping.
