    If so can you tell me if
    TCL
    A&E
    Discover
    NGC
    ANimal Planet and
    E!- yep I am a E fan

    are in the top 100

    I have tried EVERYWHERE and they give you a short list and then say THEN MORE.. but don't tell you what MORE IS.

    I guess that is when you have to call, which I am not ready to do. My phone co is offering a bundle of phone, interent and Dish network for $99 a month for a year. No mention fo after that year.

    I am so SICK of dial up, I waste so much time waiting for pages to load. I kept hoping earthlink would get DSL in my area but 4 years and nothing yet so I am looking at changing as my Direct TV when up to $57 A MONTH.

    I only have ONE option for DSL threw Windstream in my area, so I am pretty much stuck. ANy help please-Carla

    Top 100 does not have Animal planet or NGC. You have to up to the next tier for these I guess.

    I don't have sat. internet though. I have VERY slow rural land-lines. No Youtube, etc. for me. I don't think I can afford sat internet as well as t.v., though I would like too. Living in the sticks like I do has its advantages, but the drawbacks are there.

    Regards,

    Thank you- I do agree that living in the sticks has it's advantages but I had DSL then had to go BACK to dial up :-(

    It is not satelitte tho, the dsl is threw the phone line wiht my local phone co but they must have a deal with Dish to budle, but it is cheaper to do all 3 then just DSL with the Dish network. Like I said Direct tv is now $57, I really go watch a lot of NGC and some animal planet, I guess I will have to see what the next top 200 are now. Thanks again and enjoy the crickets and frogs at nite-Carla

    We have all the above mentioned although I don't know about E! I would just call the company like I did and say I want this this and this and what can you do for me. Plus my husband had to have Starz (that is another $12.00 a month extra). Hope that helps.

    I forgot I made this post, LOL. When I saw my name I was confused, lol-Doesn't take much anyway.

    I decided to stay with Direct TV, it was just too much trouble to change with everything else I have doing on plus the cost isn't that much difference.

    I really like NGC, A&E and E!- I love Talk Soup and Chelsey Lately, that woman is a riot.

    Thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions-CArla
