Tomahawk area satellite tv service

Postby Brian » Thu Jul 03, 2003 9:26 pm

Does anyone here have a satellite dish? If so, which service do you use? I'm asking because I now live way too far out for cable and my bride misses her HGTV and other cable offerings(I miss The Simpsons but that's another story). Anyway, I'd like to be able to get the Packer games as well as local news. Any pointers?

Have you checked out Direct TV? That is what most
have that can't hook up to cable.

If you are looking at satelitte tv, just remember
on Direct TV you cannot get nbc,abc,cbs,pbs, or fox on there, unless you call all the stations & get them to sign a waiver that you cannot recieve them from your rooftop antenna,(good luck on that the guy in eagle river at abc just blew me off)pbs was easy though. Im not sure if dish one has local or not you may wanna call. Direct TV will let you buy the sunday ticket for i think 160 a yr you get all games (13) every sunday I believe, its pretty cool. Hope this helps.
