In my area it was $400 over 16 months to go from satellite to Comcast. $25 credit per month for 16 months. It's called the Ditch-the-Dish promotion. Don't know if it's still in place, or available in your area. Supposedly they were going to want to take back one of my receivers, but the tech didn't ask. Oh yea, in my area the picture quality was significantly better with Comcast than D*. YMMV.
