Yes, it's true. I am a television snob. What can you do? I exsisted forever without cable, and if I lived on my own that is how it would be. I used to be a "rabbit ears" guy. And I was happy damn it. I watched two shows on broadcast television, and DVDs. That was it and it was enough for me.

I never was able to get HD locals, either (they didn't seem to offer it at the time, and my location was bad for over the air). When I moved, I got cable and it's not bad: I'm getting a good number of channels I got with Dish, plus HD locals, HDNet, and HD versions of Showtime, Cinemax and TMC. And, being cable, I do have the option of adding a Tivo Series 3 for HD recording.
Rain fade happened occasionally with Dish, but it tended to happen only when the weather was really bad (and usually the power would go out anyhow).
