When we moved where we are (an urban area south of fort worth), they promised that uverse would be available, took 2 years, but they did eventually activate it. So the whole neighborhood was Dish or Direct, with AT&T DSL for internet and regular AT&T phone. Well DSL is no longer supported, we keep pushing through to make our stuff keep working. They're trying to force everybody to u-verse through alternative means, because it's a hard sell for people like us to convert over to cable. Our neighbor made the switch and he pays almost half of what we do for phone/DSL/TV, but we wired our house for satellite and it would be a major PITA to unhook the coax matrix and switch from Satellite STB over to native cable. They left their dish in place because there'd otherwise be huge holes in the roof. TRL, we had a 50ft mast where we used to live, and picked up the DFW stations fairly well, off the towers in Cedar Hill. But 100ft is a bit out there. Being within LOS of the Cedar Hill Antenna Farm, I have all our TV's and my computer set up for OTA signal on demand, when we lose dish.
