How many places is hippie lettuce actually legal?
angry's right, the beer in Germany is 1000 times better than the preservative laden piss water they serve here. Europe is a really cool place to visit especially if you like history and architecture. The German people are very friendly and most speak English pretty well so getting around is easy. Switzerland is incredible. Italy and Spain always seemed dirty to me but I still liked it.

ITS TRUE ITS TRUE, MOST CABLE COMPANY'S LIKE (TIME WARNER) REFUSE TO BID OR PIC UP NFL NETWORK, BECAUSE THEY WANNA CHARGE YOU A EXTRA FEE FOR CARING IT..........LET ME GIVE YOU SOME GOOD ADVISE...... GET DIRECT TV........and dont look back
Know why they want to charge you that fee? Because the NFL network wants to charge them a huge fee, yet wants them to put it on the regular package. The NFL is trying to get it both ways and it doesn't work like that. I pay an extra two whole dollars a month for the NFL network, well worth it in my opinion.

The same exact thing happened to me. You should have got a notice in the mail from Comcast. In my area it only increased my bill $5 or $10. But that was enough for me to call Direct TV. That way I can get the NFL package. So far I really like it. They will come out and install it but what they won't tell you over the phone is that the dish has to be able to face a certain way. It has to be able to face the satelite that Direct TV has in the sky. I live in a house w/ surrounded by lots of trees and they made it work so you should be OK.

My adice to you is call them. Screw Comcast. It's just another way for them to get more $ out of you. 1-800-direct-tv.

I hear you about Comcast screwing with us. I had DirecTV for over five years it was a PAINFULLY five years. First off their customer service is horrible, hope you don't like watching TV when it is raining out, and you will buying up a lot of new equipment in the future to keep up with them. Right now you are in the honeymoon stage with them.
I am not saying Comcast is heaven it is the lesser of the two evils IMO.

Re: nfl network gone?

Does anyone have Verizon FiOS? It's not available in my area yet, but I may jump all over it when it is. I've heard nothing but good things about it

It's not gone but your cable company should be. I still have it on Dish Network.

Re: nfl network gone?

I've had DirecTV since December 2005 and I love it. I've never had any major issues with the weather, in fact it seems like my cable internet connection goes out more often during bad weather than the dish does. And of course you can't beat the Sunday Ticket. I've always had good experiences with their customer service and one time I had a longer than usual wait time on the phone and they hooked me up with all of their movie channels for free for 6 months!

Get Dish Network. I've had it for 2 1/2 years with no equipment problems and when I've had to call customer service with stupid questions or requests (like can I add a NYC local station...which they DID for me for just $1.50), they've been great.

Ah don't tell me that. I'm loving this shit right now. It has rained a few times since I've had it and I have not had any problems. I just could not take Comcast anymore.

Re: nfl network gone?

^ Yeah, my Dish service has only dropped a few times in monsoon-like storms with thunder, lightning and heavy winds...so it's been very reliable. I probably shouldn't have the TV on in those conditions anyways, even with a surge protector.

One of my friends works for them. All I can tell you is they are taking alot of business away from Comcast and Cox in the DC area. So people down here must really like it. They are growing very quickly but still don't carry NFL Network in the DC area.

Get Directv not the Dish network.
Both are pretty good. But Directv is the exclusive provider of the NFL Sunday ticket. the only downside is a 2 year service agreement if you get the HD-DVR Receiver( YOU HAVE TO GET IT!).
They are coming out with a boat load of new HD channels in September.

I've only had 2-3 outages and they're usually very brief and only in extreme weather. You're right, in weather like that I usually unplug stuff anyway especially my plasma. If that got fried I'd probably cry.
