I still say none of the above. Just get yourself a nice OTA antenna and skip paying a large company outrageous fees and enjoy free OTA and netflix if need be.

I have basic service from Dish; one HD receiver for 2 TVs; pay $20. I have the middle package from Cox (for internet) and pay $50.

I have basic channels. I watch content that i download through a WD Live box top. I miss ESPN & TNT (NBA games)

My hubby likes Directv because of the NFL ticket. On the East coast we had Verizon as our internet provider. We havent had a land line in years. We use MagicJack as our fax line & cell phone for voice calls. We're moving into a new house in a few days and I told him we need to cut expenses and I thought he would come to tears when I told him we would have to cut out the NFL.

He was probably referring to Cox Cable as in TV, but still has internet through them.

I just ordered DirectTV for our new house and they want to bundle me HughesNet for ISP. Anyone have experience with HughesNet?

Looking at HughesNet Plans and Pricing, High Speed Rural Satellite Internet it appears to be WAY over priced. What city are you located in? I'd call the competition to compare pricing to see how it compares to what price they are offering you (and speed).

There is no reason for anyone in the US to have less than 15Mbps...that should be the bottom of the basket in terms of options in my opinion. These companies are milking people like cattle until they shrivel up and have nothing left. >_<

Any new tract in LV should offer Cox. Which is the best choice for internet. Satellite broad band is not competitive.
