no issues with direcway.. did with their internet service.. I kept bitching and told them they need to get out here and fix it! they did finally and it works great now the internet that is. The tv satellite has always worked no issues.

I haven't had directtv for ~6 years now, but I remember that it had pretty much all the science channels (discovery, history, national geographic, etc...) with the basic setup. My cousin has dish, and national geographic only came in one of the higher packages . Didn't really care about checking other types of channels. You should check their websites to see what types of channels come in them. Most people probably aren't science nerds like me

DirecTV had Fox Sports Network within my regular package and DishNetwork didn't. For me, that was the deciding factor as I wanted to watch all the Twins games on TV. DirecTV, to me has a bit better channel lineup package.....Not as much crap as DishNetwork throws in for the same price.
