Re: Cable/satellite tv providers

Our building will have Manquehue and I've been told that DirecTV dishes will not be a problem (we'll see about that when we move in though).
To see my football (Crystal Palace) I think only DirecTV that will show all the games.

Cable/satellite tv providers

I did a search on here and couldn't find anything recent on cable/satellite tv providers.

What do people recommend?
How is Directv?

The import company needed a copy of her last US Visa, which expired in 2013 (and was in an expired passport). Her current Green Card w...
