    We are moving back to Point Washington on Eden Drive and are very skeered that we are going to miss key football games again. Does anyone know if and when cable is going to be run out there? We had Dish Network before and they wouldn't let us have local channels. We missed a lot of games, even with the NFL network.
    Any one have any advice?:bang:

    Not sure, but you can find a couple of NFL coaches in SoWal, and plenty of players.

    SoWal = DirecTV.com, which offers network feeds from both coasts with waivers from the local affiliates. And NFL Sunday ticket has tons of games in HD.

    How long ago were you on Dish? We have Dish Network with local channels, with the exception of CBS as they don't consider an Alabama station "local." Far as I know, NFL Sunday Ticket is available, if desired.

    Kurt, did you have to fight the Dothan CBS station like I did? Funny how both the Panama City stations could care less, but Dothan, 100 miles away, didn't want to release me. Pressed the issue and got it done- I really like having the NY and LA feeds.

    Tell DirecTV that, and that other DirecTV customers who are neighbors have waivers for CBS, and that you would hate to have to switch to Dish network.

    No, the only problem I've had is getting recent waivers for NBC and ABC HD feeds, but haven't bothered to follow up.

    Fight the man! That way when I get HD (when the youngest boy finishes college) you'll have blazed the trail!

    I did, and again, about two months ago, they sent a waiver to CBS and they won't budge. I get the New York stations, not even local. Still no CBS. I've considered changing to Dish.

    I get ABC, CBS, and NBC, and don't pay a penny to any of those cable or satellite companies. Just found an antenna, and duct taped it to a couple of pieces of long pvc pipe. Works pretty darn well, and it didn't cost me a penny.

    We spent part of last season in dish network/direct tv hell0 while living in Point Washington. Our neighbor got a waiver to get CBS but they would not give one to us. The antenna and duck tape technique was employed with little or no success (there was a snow storm in Tampa).
    In October we moved to Mediacom land and boy were we happy...all of the games right in our own living room.
    You have to understand that my husband and I take football very seriously, it is not uncommon to move tv's around to create a sports bar effect in the living room or back deck so we don't miss a game.

    So basically, what y'all are telling me is we may be spending a lot of time at Shades this season!
