I suspect you can use your own DVR, but it would have to be one provided by dish, and the upfront cost of purchasing it probably doesn't it make it worthwhile since the prices seem to basically include a free/low cost unit without much additional cost.

The RSN on dish carry warriors/sharks/A's/Giants game. I think if a game is blacked out, it won't be shown, but not sure what the current blackout rules are. NFL games are carried on standard networks (CBS/FOX?) or ESPN/TBS I think - I don't think I've ever seen an NFL game on the RSN.

Dish does have something like a league pass which would give you every game in the league, but that costs a bit (every league seems to have its own package).

Can one of the super brains on this forum calculate what it would cost monthly for 2 tv's on the 120 plus deal with all the added fees (with the hopper) and does it still have a 3 year price lock? Thanks in advance.

AT120+: 54.99
Hopper DVR: $10
Joey (2nd TV): $7
Subtotal: $71.99
Sonic discount: -$10/mo
Total net: $61.99

The dish price is locked for two years. The Sonic bundle discount is for one year. :)

BTW, there is a new "Flex Pack" option from DISH, which allows Sonic members to create a bundle that contains exactly what they want. It's got a base set of programming that's very low cost, then add-on bundles in interest areas. For example, Kids, News, National Sports, Regional Sports, or Local channels. An overview can be found here: http://www.dish.com/flexpack/

(Note: for Sonic bundle discounting, you must order new DISH service directly from Sonic. http://sonic.com/dish to get started!)

What would it take to get just the weather channel?
Got family in Florida/Georgia/Carolinas,
the tide's coming in
and the Weather Channel just cut off viewing without some kind of prepaid television deal.

Is there a daily rate for a single channel?

I am an existing Dish customer. If I sign up for Sonic, can I get the discount if I sign up for a new two year agreement with Dish. I am not under contract now.

How is the Dish TV delivered? Is Dish TV still delivered by satellite, or is this service sharing my internet connection?

How much bandwidth is sacrificed when the TV is on, or when the DVR is recording?

BTW, I am SO happy with the GBit Fiber. It's the way things ought to be.
It even beats my OC3 (by a mile) from when I had access to the Marin county .edu gateway. I think I got in the 300-400 Mbps then.

Thanks!
