My neighbor has a beautiful monstrosity of a dish in his backyard. It was there when he purchased the home and now it is just an unsightly rusted hulk that his wife is apopletic (sp?) about.

He asked me to help him remove it, but I have no clue about how to go about doing it. Are there any sources of information about installing or removing this 8' beast?

the SHOWTIME pak, which includes both the analog and a total of 26 digital Showtimes, The Movie Channel, Flix and Sundance. Not bad for about $26 a month, I couldn't believe it.......

If I recalled back in 1994 the word was C-Band, the big dish, was on its way out when RCA released the DSS system. Subscriptions dropped over time mostly due to people wanting convenience and didn't care or know about picture quality.

Majority of people don't realize that Directv and Dish Network along with the cable company supplies 2nd generation video broadcasts.

Anyone that has a C-Band satellite tv system receives the feeds directly without the middle man..... This results in master broadcast picture and sound quality.

So C-Band can not die because these are the satellites where most programming originates.

And all those feeds......
