    Getting Direct TV, but from where?

    I've made the decision to get Direct TV installed in my house. I also plan on getting the DVR Tivo box as well. Now my question is where should I get it. Obviously I could get it from their official website, but there are also about 1000 websites that sell Direct TV. Most of these sites seem to have a better deal on the programming / equipment. Are there any drawbacks to purchasing Direct TV through a vendor rather than from Direct TV itself?

    I just got it in my new house. I used an add in the local paper. We got 3 free systems and a free DVD player, plus instalation, for free.

    We just have to pay the monthly fees for DTV service. With 2 extra rooms that is $39.95.

    I had it in the old house for 9 years and it never went out once.

    So you bought your direct TV through a vendor? That's what I'm thinking about doing. Thanks for the input!

    I would use a local add and a local vendor. Since any website or DTV themselves will probably be using the same local vendor for the instalation.
