heyholetsgogrant Posted June 13, 2005 Share Posted June 13, 2005 Roughly three years ago my family decided to get direct TV, because the programming was better than cable and they were having one of their come-on’s. A few weeks later the instillation man arrived and install the dish on a tree facing the southern sky….but the instillation didn’t look right, because we noticed a tree branch about 10-15 feet above the dish was not in full bloom yet…so my dad asked of that branch would affect our TV when the leaves start growing, the man said no don’t worry about it. So what do you think happened?, the branch grew out a few weeks later and our TV cut out….well lets just say my dad made a very angry phone call to direct TV and we had the branch removed a week later. Throughout the duration we have had satellite TV the signal would go out during thunderstorms and heavy cloud cover, we decided that it was not a big deal and just let it be….but another thing started to happen, since we live in the vicinity of BWI Airport, planes come over our house at least every 30 minutes, and every time a plane would come over head the picture would bunch up into chopped up pixels (I thought this was actually funny because I would hear a big F bomb from down stairs when ever a plane came over head). Just recently another tree branch started to block the signal, which was about 5 feet above the branch we had removed previously …that was the last straw…our contract with direct TV is up and we are switching to Digital cable. -Grant Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
