Looking at the Cost of a Satellite System?

I am thinking about this in a very deliberate and measured way. It is pretty simple, I want to get the best deal that I can get and so I am not going to rush in to anything. Like for instance I am looking at sites like http://satellitetelevisionpackages.com/, but I am not taking the stuff that at face value though. I want to take a close look at what sort of deal I am getting and get a really solid idea of the bottom line. Of course the first question is what is the up front cost going to be. I am going to need three of the boxes that decode the signal, because I will want to connect the satellite system to three TV sets in three different rooms. I am thinking that I do not want to get the DVR system that you can get with Direct TV, I think that they call it the Genie or something like that and they make it look like it is really quite nice to have it.

Of course I do not like the system that I have now at all. It is basically quite overpriced and very underwhelming. My cable company seems to think the service that they provide is worth a good deal more than I think that it is worth. In truth it is difficult to figure out exactly what they are charging me for what though. I get the Internet and cable TV from them and they tack on all sorts of little charges . It is a bit ridiculous to look at the bill and not be really able to figure out what is what.They do not provide a bad internet service, but they charge way more for it than I want to pay for it.
