Fiancee rarely watches TV, and I'd only want a 'hockey-package', so it might be best to get heat into my garage (it was 49*f in recent days there) where my computer is, and stick with watching streams
Go with the dish - it's cheaper and it's better. You can get all of the channels you like for less than or at least as much as what you are paying for your basic/expanded cable, AND all channels are in digital quality. Check around to see what kind of deals you can get - it might be worth your while. If I didn't live in a building that doesn't allow satellite service, I'd already have it.
