we gave up pay tv well over a year ago and really don't miss it.
if we were to go back, and sat dish was an option, we'd take it over cable, hands down.

I agree on the comment about getting 100 channels and only about 10 of them are worth watching. It looks like we are stuck with what ever they serve up.

I know it's available in parts of Summerlin as I've already looked into it and it's available in 89134.

The best "deal" may be to bundle phone, internet, and cable TV from Cox. That's what we have, but they have better deals now than we got pricewise. I can't imagine not having Cox for internet. Anything else would be like watching grass grow.

Dish Network is reliable and affordable for me. I have the mid-tier (200 channels+HD included) with 3 HD (2 HD-DVRs) boxes, some protection plan for the boxes and a free promo for 1 year of Starz @ $96 a month. Had cinemax for 1 year @ penny before that. This is after our 1 year of discounts so it's not that bad of a deal. It's cheaper than Cox for sure. The first year was like $70 a month.

I have Dish Network and am happy with it. You don't need to worry much about rain fade with satellite here.

Good for you!! With options like Hulu+ and Netflix you can pretty much get anything that you want to watch. They only thing holding me back are the lack of streaming sports. I think TV providers are clutching this for as long as possible. Once you can get sports on demand over the net...lot's will change.

Can you pick up local channels pretty good with just an antenna in LV.

Huh? Trying to find something negative? Too funny!

Years ago, before cable and before there ever was anything called satellite TV, we all used antennas.

No strong wind ever blew down our antenna, or any of our neighbors, just like none of the satellite dishes installed correctly don't blow away nowadays.

Back then, a lot of folks had their tv antennas in the attic as well.

Gosh, I remember the old rabbit ears on the tv too, lol.
