Out where we live - a few channels over the air - nothing more. Will not pay Direct TV or any other pay television company for that matter. I have the net and I'm a computer engineer. 99 channels? What the hell would I use them for? I don't have that much free time to watch TV.
My advice: Cancel immediately. You will probably get stuck with one more month of payments. Make sure that when you cancel that you do it both over the phone AND in writing with a letter requiring a return receipt. I am the computer repair company in this sparsely populated area in Idaho. Some of my customers have cancelled then, get a new bill and get told "Oh, we never received your cancellation". The same thing happens with Wild Blue.
