    figure how many receivers you need for your house with satellite.
    then find out how much it will cost for all those receivers with the monthly fee included.

    do the same with cable....

    find out which one is cheaper and go with that one.

    both show 300 channels with nothing on but commercials so got with the cheaper one.

      Cable is usually a rip-off compared to satellite. But not ALWAYS. It depends on your area and what your cable company offers vs. DBS. Calbe also typically lacks picture quailty and avaiable varity that DBS can offer. Are you interested in HD at all? Our local cable com only offers one HD channel! So I went with Dish. Even though DirecTV (currently) has more HD channels than Dish, the price wasn't worth the very small addition.

        Yea had both recently... Now with Optimum/Cablevision, had Directv tho. Nothing different really. Switch to Optimum cause they offer the "Triple Play" package, internet, VOIP and Basic cable for 29.99 each no tax. I took the offer and ran, when it goes up next year Ill think about switching back to DTV. Directv has always been my favorite in the end.

            then my brain is gone , I had DirecTV before, now I have digital cable and I hate it, I think it's a ripoff. the picture quality even though it's digital is not the same, and the damn cable goes out in bad weather worse than my dish did.
