Have a King Dome satelite system and have heard that Direct TV also offers internet access. Trying to get a PERSON on the fone is a lost cause and no response to internet query.(I'm currently staying on the "Forgotten Coast" of FL and DirectTV forgot it alright,) no dealers!
Anyone have any experience with it????

This is what I read. I donít know if it helps or not.
<blockquote>Both DirecTV and Dish are beginning to bundle TV and internet, and probably other services. I'm not overly familiar with Dish's offerings, but I've been following the DirecTV part for awhile.

With DTV, the offering varies depending on the customer location. I doubt they will partner anywhere with cable, since that competes with their core business, but they are partnering with phone companies, WISPs, and other sorts of connections where those are available.

For remote customers, both DirecTV and Dish have signed with WildBlue to provide satellite internet. This will be bundled, not separate bill like DirecTV/Direcway.

BTW, Dish did not start, or ever own, Starband, they simply offered Starband service (which was bundled, back in that era).
They ended it as part of their maneuvering when they were trying to buy Hughes, which included DirecTV and Direcway.
