Need someone's expertice in the issue. I was offered a Satellite Service through an aquantence. They are selling me a satellite receiver, dish, install, and free programing for $575.

From what I understand someone will come to my house and install everything and someone else will do the programming for the receiver. The receiver is cardless and and can connect up to 4 satellites at any given time. If the programming goes out they will reconnect the receiver again for me at no addtional costs.

The person selling the unit is a reliable source and I dont feel like they would take me for a ride.

Does anyone have experiences with this? Last time I heard the units were running for 10mos with no problems and they have all be reprogrammed again.

Thanks for anyones input!

a little high on the price............the recievers i believe that he is talking about can be purchased on eby for 175 more or less the dish about 100 and the programing is free if you have the patience to read and read some more or you can probably get someone to load it for you maybe 75-100 then you can justify spending that much.or if you really trust this guy pay him if you have the money and dont want to mess with it.............

What are the chances of getting busted?...

And if you do, what the heck happens?

I figure $575 and I dont have to lift a finger and just watch TV is all good for me...
