    Dish network VS Direct ?

    Moving out in the country and will have to pick one for my TV viewing . What are the + and - of each ? Does one offer better coverage of the SEC and KY games ? I assume internet is bundled with this coverage ? Thanks

    I've had both. Easy answer: Go with DirecTV. Trust me.

    Go with a streaming service and save yourself a ton of money.

    I have direct tv and it has been great for us.

    We have the SEC Network and Big 10 Network if you're into that type of thing.

    I don't bundle internet but probably should.

    If you go the Direct TV route, I can PM you my account info and you can list me as your referral...and we will both save $10 per month for 10 months.

    Two houses ago (17 years ago) we moved to a neighborhood that didn’t yet have cable…. and I remember being so salty that I had to switch to Satellite (DirecTV). LOVED it from day 1 and never looked back.

    I've had both and don't prefer one over the other. I wish they'd both treat existing customers as well as they do new customers.

    I have Dish only because Direct doesn't provide the local (Bowling Green) channels and not being able to get the local news sucks.

    DirectTV, but I would be careful about bundling the internet. Here locally DirecTV and Windstream are bundled together and in my area Windstream internet is terrible. I recently had to fire them after having constant issues with my service and now have DirecTV for satellite service and Spectrum for internet service.
