not in apartment complexes. TVmax has the short and curlies with them. it's cheap($18/mo) but it ain't great. i was fine with it up until today. I think they're just trying to get more people to subscribe to their digital service.

Here's their latest offer



i don't htink we *can*, because IIRC doesn't the dish have to be pointed south? we'd have no way to set it up since our apartment faces north

The same here. I got internet problems allllll the time. And TVmax sucks. They give you a hard time and tell you, "oh we can be their any time from 8 am to 5 pm." What kind of shit is that?

I used to install for DirecTV. Most apartments wont let you perm. attach anything to the building, so a tripod or pole mount is the only way to go. DirecTV points pretty much due south, Dish Network is closer to Southwest.
