    I have Dish Network, and it rained here earlier. When it rains it interferes with the reception. Well every channel is back EXCEPT ESPN, so I'm missing Monday night football!!!!! :mad: :mad:

    Yep. I finally got fed up with the "rain fade" with DirecTV and switched to cable.

    cable can go out in the rain too, but not as often. And it depends where you live. But over all cable is more stable, satelite has better picture.

    Cable doesn't go out if it rains, maybe if your neighborhood distributor gets hit by lightning or some cumjob runs into it with their car but an optical cable running 4ft underground is not gonna be affected by rain. Get HD over cable and it'll blow out your satellite pieces of shit, seriously. Satellite is for farmers, if you live in a city throw that shit out and get a real service.

    The local cable company still strings their lines on power poles, and has about 30 channels. :lol:
    And yes I live in the country.

    The closest Hooters is about 75 miles away.:lol:

    And also, the cable companies get their signals from satellites, although with much bigger dishes.

    They broadcasted it on "my 20" here so that those without espn could still get it.
