I actually did have Dish for a few years up until about three years ago, but had plenty of troubles out of them and customer service, so I probably won't be joining back up with them. Really, from what I gather, you can get similar deals cut for you from either group, it just depends on what kinda dealer or middleman you have. The way it was presented to me, it's actually the opposite, it looks like I'll be getting 25 more from Direct though both prices and packages were mostly similar, but my problems with Dish a few years ago were enough to tip me toward Direct instead. I really do appreciate your and everyone's input on this, thanks to those who've posted.
