Last non-Hating Stern Fan

AT&T(Dish Network out here)is trying to do the hard sell on upgrading on their systems, be it phone, TV or Internet. If I choose to upgrade I stand to lose a lot of TV programming I get right now a lot cheaper, I would also lose all Sirius music channels.
To get what I already have by "upgrading", I would have to shell out an extra fifty bucks a month.
As much as I'd like to have some of the new equipment, like a dual tuner DVR, I don't want to touch my plan cuz I know the price will jump. Out of 3 standard receivers, I only have one that the buttons still work on it. It fills the need so I'm not worried about it. Most people will just choose from what's offered to them, I survived for years with just the broadcast channels in the garage...
If Netflix would expand their Watch Instant list to include more of the kids shows, I'd be tempted to dump the dish altogether and use one of those Ruku boxes or something similar.
