No Dish Network For Us Thanks to Trees

Things went from bad to worse with Dish Network which began here and here. However, the worse is not their fault–just the surrounding flora.

Andy, our Dish Network installer, showed up at 3:30PM, which was 3 1/2 hours after the far end of our appointment window. When he greeted me, he was nice, but he had a troubled expression on his face. He proceeded to walk around the house to see where it would be best to install the dish.

I knew that if the dish was in the front yard that we would be able to point it towards the SSE where the main Dish Network satellite is. Unfortunately, I did not know that you have to connect with a different satellite to the SSW for the Taiwan Mega Pack service.

Andy came back to the front door with an even more worried expression. He explained about the satellite direction problem associated with our wanting the Taiwanese Mega Pack. This is a problem for us, because we have trees surrounding us on all sides except between E and S.

Andy was very nice and apologetic for making us wait all day, and he said that he would have his boss come out later today to verify that an install would not work at our location. Once that is verified, we will get a refund on my credit card. This sucks, because Y needs that TV coverage for her dissertation. I will have to come up with a Plan B.
