    Why is it so hard for members of Iowa's population to get a dish?

    Im sick of hearing about channel 17 n Sinclair broadcasting battle with mediacom, lets see, get digital picture n sound on all channels for $40 a month plus $10 off a month for 15 months or stay with greedy crappy mediacom com for like what $60 a fricken month? with the half the channels? Real tough choice!

    #1 - I don't think there is really a need to call people idiots.

    #2 - Why is this in the Ticket Exchange forum?

    Other than that, I agree about Mediacom. I've only had DirecTV for a few weeks but I love it so far.

    Wow ty hard to imagine why you have such a great reputation on this site. If you really want the answer to your question go back read the threads for both sides of the arguement then sit and ponder. If you just wanted to be arguementative and insult those of us who prefer mediacom for the connections channel and cost of the bundle then nicely done.
    As far as mediacom = greedy. educate yourself on both sides come back and discuss.

    because with dish u get interference when it rains and snows, and if the wind blows wrong...


    and dont say "you dont know what your talking about" because i have one


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    ive had a sattelite since 1998 and only ONCE did i lose a signal!

    Once in 9 yrs! You sound like a mediacom propagandist. i take that back, yes its true during the summer theres 3-4 times a summer il lose a signal for 5-10 minutes but who cares during summer? Im talking bout when it counts during fb n bb season. p.s. its also true the bundle package is a good deal but the vast majority have mediacom alone n seperate.

    You can't order a dish when you are looking at Porn on the internet all day.

    ty im pretty sure during your "time when it counts" fb and bb season, there is a thing called winter storms which could take your setellite for a whole day, i've had satellite for the last 10 yearrs or so, and in the winter is where most the problems come in, i.e. losing a signal

    So in one post you went from saying you have had one outage in 9 years to 36 outages? Crazy...

    Some people don't like DSL and love Mediacom's high speed internet and you can save a little money packaging it with cable.

    Some people also enjoy Mediacom Connections Channel 22.

    Some people can't get a dish.

    Some people don't want a dish.

    There are a few more reasons why someone would want to keep Mediacom.

    Agreed. Thread Closed. We don't need a thread attacking forum members by calling them idiots.
