I'm probably not the best person to answer, since I'm not a huge TV
guy and I don't really understand how people justify spending $60-$150
each month so that they can have access to such inspiring content as
kourtney & khloe take miami, but...

I have never done the dish thing, but I'm definitely leaning towards
it so I can watch the foosball. It seems reasonable, and I have not
heard of any "gotchas".

I'd be interested to hear from others who have used dish tv.

(I wouldn't use it for internet... it's pretty expensive and unless
you live in the boondocks where there is no cable/dsl service, I don't
think it makes sense)

I had them for 3 years in the corp apt in central PA. Can't speak to
pricing, but I had no issues with the service.
