Also, throw in some "I have to check with the boss" as well. Bottom
line, when you bring up price being a factor, in most cases (other than
a fast food joint) they will find a way to do it cheaper. For years we never
had to buy new cell phones - they always gave us free ones to stop us
from canceling - allegedly. However, we started getting the cells that
were yesterday's technology so we decided to end being on the cheap
and just go with the program.

If I decided to go DTV I'd definitely get a better deal than advertised. But
one thing about DTV that they haven't fixed yet: If a major storm comes in
you lose the signal. In FL you can get major storms at any time. I can't
live without my TV working right. If I was watching a Steeler game and lose
the signal, I would go mental.
That one good thing being in idaho, we don't get the hurricanes or tropical storms.

I have done the "I can't afford the Sunday Ticket this year" for the past 6 yrs. They give me a discount every year.
This year (and last year) they gave me 20 bucks off/month ($34x 6 months) for ST.
How did you manage 4 x $39? Thats a steal.

Yea, most places have their ad-and disadvantages. But it's not like
we have hurricanes or tropical storms every day. 2004 seemed like
it though. But on the plus side, I barely ever, ever wear socks or
"shoes" other than sandals. Never have long pants on. And can
ride my bike 99% of the time instead of using a car. But we certainly
can get hit with storms dense enough to block sat. signals. I have
Sirius radio, and have a few days where I can't get a signal.
