Was it worth it?  

  1. Terry VanPay (Kewaunee,  Wisconsin) paid $39.95 and said:

    Had Dish but the receiver didn’t work half the time. First time I called they sent another one. Next time I got a foreigner I could hardly understand, and he have instructions yo fix it! Remove the plug in cord from the back of the TV and reverse it with the receiver!!!! Sooooo every time I turned TV on I had to reverse this cord! Finally got tired of that and quit cable, got an antenna instead!

    Was it worth it? Yes
