Cable TV is immune to the problems that plague Dish! Yank My Dish!
Rain, Clouds, Snow, Ice, Trees, Even Wind can cause a DBS satellite to lose its signal!
When comparing Cable TV vs Dish Network, Directv, Sky, or any of the other DBS providers from around the world, it's perfectly clear to the informed consumer Cable TV is the obvious choice! Satellite definitely has its place in the world for applications such as GPS, but when it comes to the consumer's home entertainment needs Cable TV has the clear advantage over Direct TV, Dish Network, and the other satellite providers which just can't compete with Cable TV.
For the consumer Cable TV can provide your crystal clear television service, high-speed internet access, and also telephone service over a single broadband connection. Typically referred to as Triple Play, a bundled service pack that can save the consumer much money and also make it more convenient, instead of paying for three separate services it's all on one bill. One small cable provides all those services with a huge savings.

Try as they may Dish Network and Directv just can't come up with a viable solution to compete with the services Cable TV has to offer. Dish Network and Directv do provide television programming, but then you have to consider the reliability factor. How reliable Directv, Dish Network, or any other DBS service will be, depends on your location, weather and many other factors. Cable TV reliability, works great in any location, weather, or elements!
The most common and annoying complaints for a Directv, Dish Network, or any DBS dish owner is called rain fade. I've experienced rain fade many times myself before Cable TV came to our area. Rain fade is one of the most frustrating problems and can happen at the worst times. You could be watching a great movie, show, or sporting event and then your TV picture will start to pixelate, followed by the all too familiar Acquiring satellite signal showing up on screen, that rain problem has again made you miss yet another ending to a movie, show, or ruined that sporting event! Cable TV, The Right Choice!
Sorry to say, but there is no rain proof solution for satellite, they do sell 24 inch & 30 inch satellite dishes for this purpose, I bought a 24 inch heated dish when I had Dish Network and saw no big change when it came to rain fade, I still lost my signal and if it helped it wasn't noticeable. Cloud fade can also be a problem that is common with Dish Network, Directv, and other DBS. Sometimes the satellite signal will be lost with heavy cloud cover even without rain. Cloud fade or rain fade can make your satellite viewing experience unbearable! Cable TV is immune to these problems, experience what Cable TV has to offer and put on a happy face.
