Re: Comcast/AT&T Cable TV 3 Dumps Local Newscasts

Tell me about it....I just had the satellite TV guy at my condo yesterday 
because we are sick and tired of the crap that Comcast/AT&T is giving me.  
To have the Dirct TV dish installed, the ONLY way we can have it installed 
is by putting through a ground mount by the deck and digging a trench until 
it gets to the shed and then through the shed to where the existing cable 
connection comes through the condo.  We can't have it anywhere on the 
building or anywhere where you can see it from the front of the condo and 
the " free " installation is now going to cost me $ 180.00 next thursday.
