Tell your dad to go with dish network. I've had direct tv and switched to dish network last year and love it. Cheaper and more channels.

My Grandma has DirecTV, we have Dish Network though, and from personal experience having used both I like Dish alot better lol

Since my grandma lives next door to me I'm up there alot and channel surf both and in my personal opinion I gotta stick with Dish, it just seems easier to use and find what your looking for. DirecTV isn't any worse in terms of reception from what I've noticed though...guess it's all personal preference

We had dish network about 6 or 7 years ago and it was great. The only problem was when the dish would get snowed on we would lose the reception and have to go clean it off. I guess that's pretty normal though. I'm not sure if they charge for local channels anymore though, I know when we had them they charged us for local channels.

My friend has DirecTV and loves it. When I am over at his place we watch it and I have to say I am pretty impressed. HD looks beautiful and the preinstalled DVR is great.
