Channel surfing question dish or directv
After our move to the boonies and only having OTA, my wife misses her TV SO WILL BE MAKING A 2 year commitment very soon. I called both Dish and Directv and was on the phone with each for over an hour with each.
Both told me that I could exclude channels while channel surfing, channel up or down. To me this is a huge deal, very close to the price difference, but I will not remember the channels, and do not want to scroll through the shopping, religious, and channels we do not get.
Is this possible with either or both? How about the channel lag is that a non issue nowadays with the Genie and Hopper, and the receivers? Or is there a lag still? While either entering a channel or scrolling up/down.
I tried searching, but didn't see any info. Thanks in advance for the help
