Well, I'm sure that HotPass from DirecTV rocks, and as a former DirecTV subscriber, I would enjoy the hell out of it. But I don't have DirecTV anymore, and I would rather have the freedom to select ANY driver's radio rather than just the few that DirecTV offers. I just want something else to listen to Carl's (or anybody's else's) scanner and get a ton of stats that they don't offer up on the TV broadcasts.well depends on your driver.. I recommend Hotpass fromDirect TV you can still see whats happening with a driver(obviously depnds on who your driver is) even through the commercials.
I'll probably get it next year. I didn't find out until a couple of weeks ago that Time Warner/Roadrunner subs get it at a HUGE discount. Like, 24 bucks a year.
