You can buy prepaid directTV dish, if you do not want to setup a contract. They sell them at sodimac and other stores. Good option for people having trouble getting a contract when they first arrive, or out somewhere with no local direcTV guy.

We have changed our preferred language to English, which means even some of the regular shows (especially kiddie shows for eg.) are broadcast in English, instead of dubbed.
