So I've been waiting about 3 months to get a larger satellite dish upgrade (for free) which would allow me to get local channels (they come from a different satellite)
Then just before my scheduled date, they call and tell me it'll be another month because they're out of dishes. LOL. So I find a local retailer who will do the upgrade for $24.95 which isn't bad. Today he shows up and tells me there's no way I can get a signal from the new satellite because of trees! Grr!
I'm not going through the whole tree-trimming nightmare again.. did that once. Very costly.
So all I've got is Fox because they apparently allow anyone to have a Fox channel if they want.. the other networks are not as nice. But locals from other areas are available on the regular satellites so I'm considering doing something slightly unethical..
For a year or so prior to going on the waiting list, I was getting locals from another town by giving them a fake address. I told them it was my ex-wife's place and I wish to keep the same billing address. Clever eh? Well, I had to end that when I found out I was eligible finally for locals here anyway... but now that's not going to happen.
Should I lie to them again? I'm not good at it but it worked before and all I want is to be able to watch ER on Thursday nights! Damn it!
