We had ATT U-Verse but when the renewal came up they told us they were switching to Direct TV. ATT bought Direct TV a year or two ago. I think their plan is to put everybody on Direct TV

I switched from DirecTV to ATT in 2012. Hmmmm.
I don't wanna go back. The trees in my yard have grown and are blocking the path to the dish.

never had a dish but understand that during storms when you want to watch radar the dish often goes out

If it is set up correctly, with a strong initial signal, then it should only go out in extremely heavy downpours. But I doubt they are set up correctly in most cases.

Because now we have direct tv, they switched it from U*-Verse to direct. If the wind blows we get bad reception, if it rains we got nothin'

interesting -
atnt offered us a great deal to get the dish -
we got spectrum
the spectrum cable guy had to repair all the cable connectors that atnt installed
we now have a nice picture and nice sound to go with it

The beauty of internet, live TV is that unless your internet goes out, it's normally available. Oh, and the *no contract ... cancel whenever you wish* factor.

atnt had three chances to set us up correctly and failed -
spectrum took one time to set it up correctly

well yeah -
three ways -
phone
cable
dish
-is there another way?

No ... though it does require high speed internet, best if used with a WiFi modem. The only other way you are going to have TV without cable/satellite or internet is with an antenna. The upside to internet TV using a streaming device such is Roku is that there are also FREE stations available where you can watch *some* live TV for free.

Should you get to the point where you wish to try that option, I would be glad to provide you with both free and relatively inexpensive stations.

Interestingly enough, I was recently able to upload HBO on Channel Pear for free.
