  • Lost My Picture on Dish Network, DirecTv Again! YANK MY DISH!
    to chop down to avoid tree fade Tree fade is when the trees block your line of site and your TV picture starts to pixelate turn into checkered squares and eventually you lose your TV picture and satellite signal A big problem is what if it s your neighbor s trees that are causing the tree fade problem are they going to be kind enough to chop their trees down so you can have Dish Network or DirecTv Tree Problems Solution Switch To Cable TV Tree fade or TV picture loss may also happen during windy days which can also be called wind fade It s really not the wind that causes the satellite signal to be lost but the wind blowing the tree tops into the line of site This can be easily diagnosed by going to the signal strength screen on the satellite receiver and watch the signal to see if the signal increases and decreases as the winds blow This can become very annoying when you re trying to watch a race or game and the picture keeps going out The last tree fade problems are growing trees leafs or leaves If a satellite system is installed in the fall and the installer isn t careful remember there s no leaves by the spring you may slowly notice momentary losses of your satellite signal and with the tree progressively becoming in full leaf that satellite signal could be lost completely A few of the other issues the public may not be aware of is DBS DirecTv and Dish Network suffer from rain fade snow fade cloud fade ice fade etc A DBS satellite owner should have a DVD player on hand so at least they have something to watch when their satellite goes out One great thing

  • Free local channels on digital cable TV
    whether its from Digital cable TV service or even from DBS satellite Which brings me back to those two people who wrote e mails about wanting local channels only In the case of DirectTV and DishNetwork you would be required to purchase all the equipment and pay for installation at a premium price There are no promotional deals for local channels only that s why the higher than normal equipment and installation prices are factored in And that s if you can find a retailer willing to sell a satellite system since they only make money if they activate a system with at least a basic programming package On top of all that there s still the monthly locals fee In some cases DishNetwork and DirectTv customers may have to use multiple satellite dishes to receive local channels or HD other dish options are BUD Big Ugly Dish the name is usually reserved for the big old C band satellite But the DBS dishes are also getting big and ugly all these dish options just so they can try to provide the same services as one small cable Give me Cable Please Everyone has a photographic memory Some don t have film The antenna option for local channels As far as receiving local channels there s always the old standby antenna system Anyone owning a Dish Network or DirectTV may want to think twice before tearing down their old antenna system With rain fade cloud fade snow and ice fade at least a DBS satellite owner can still watch local TV from their old antenna system when they loose their satellite signal Now Cable TV is a different story the very week cable TV became available at my home I was able to take down my big old ugly antenna system with no worries of ever losing my digital cable TV picture Cable TV is virtually immune to all the signal fade problems that plagues the dish or DBS satellite I also took down those pain in the neck satellite dishes with a great feeling of relief JUST THINK ABOUT THIS One tiny cable replaced all that junk on the roof That one tiny cable not only provides my crystal clear picture on television but also my high speed internet and cable telephone service Many cable operators refer to these three services grouped together as The Triple Play There s a big savings subscribing to Triple Play Oh yes I also receive my Free Local Channels crystal clear Why is it that when you buy a TV set you only get one Local Channels they provide a public service Besides your local networks such as ABC CBS Fox and NBC providing some of your favorite primetime shows reality sit coms mystery drama etc Let s not forget our very local PEG channels which also provide your own local news sports and weather In times of emergency or disaster your PEG channels become invaluable and work as a public service Public

    cable users Because of the non locality of satellite television those viewers are instead shown local weather for various major cities The reason it s called Local on the 8s is that it airs at times that end in 8 an example 7 48 or 7 58 My conclusion Give me Cable Please The Weather Channel The Weather Channel TWC was founded by one of Chicago s favorite meteorologist John Coleman He was always my favorite weatherman when I was growing up in Chicagoland and also the most accurate forecaster Thanks to John Coleman we have The Weather Channel which runs 24 hours a day And on Cable TV locals on the 8s where we never have to wait longer than 10 minutes for our up to date local forecasts The Weather Channel TWC provides some excellent weather related news and coverage at their website weather com and also provides forecasts for a number of newspapers and radio stations including Sirius and XM satellite radio services Both satellite radio services have a line of local weather and traffic stations for the major cities across the U S TWC provides a very important service especially when it comes to our local weather forecast At the time of this writing I m up in the northern part of Wisconsin with temperatures of 40F with the wind chill factor very dangerous These are the times I m thankful I have Cable TV to provide The Weather Channel local forecasts for my area It may look nice and sunny outside but the local weather report warns us of dangerous wind chills and to cover any exposed skin to prevent frostbite On the other hand if we had DBS satellite such as Dish Network or DirecTV we could get The Weather Channel but more of
