Had Directv for a long time, family members have Dish Network that I've used plenty. I've lost my signal 4x in about the last 12 years. 2 were this year, during rainstorms that dumped more than an inch per hour. Lasted 30-40 mins tops, lost it twice for about 2 hours each time in a blizzard more than 5 years ago.
Not a huge concern losing signal, and Directv is a far superior product. Honestly hate cable compared to Directv. The AT&T merger does scare me some with pricing.
Props to VCU4LIFEGOVIKS for the sig
