Re: My former cable company...
I've got DirecTV now (my son signed up for it a few months ago... so won't change until the contract expires) and have never had a problem with snow, rain, etc. so who knows?
I will switch to FIOS tv once directv is up though. (at least most likely... thing is I get YES, SNY, NESN (sox), and MASN(o's and nats) sports networks and they are really cool)
