We were rewiring the house for both computer
and laying lines for cable tv. I knew that any company that does phone wiring would also likely do dsl and cable/antenna wiring, and found
. We did eight rooms.

The cable they laid was so that DirecTV could come and install a dish on the roof, and then boxes in each room. I had actually called DirecTV out before, and they (their subcontractors, actually) will wire your house for you BUT, they are in a hurry to do so and quite frankly they will just throw the wire up and nail it down to the outside of your house any which way, and then they just drill through the walls to get the cable inside to each room. I saw them do this with two neighbors' houses and the cabling on the exterior of the house is an eyesore, with extra cable looped and tied up, and just left hanging off the house. I didn't want a mess / rush / sloppy job like that b/c we were working on a clean architectural property so knew I'd have to get someone else to do the wiring.

So... called
and
. Harworking guy, a bit chatty. But I could tell he knew what he was talking about and how to do things, and he was very conscientious and neat about the job. I wanted as much wire concealed as possible and that's what he worked to do. That is not something DirecTV will do! That is also something the phone company will not do! They will just tack it up (or down...) turn on service and go!

Alongside the cable tv wire we laid, we were laying internet wiring too so that we had hard
in each room. Although we have wireless it definitely does not reach certain areas of the property so we have to add additional routers in those cold spots and these must be hard wired. Also, we use Vonage/internet phone service, so that also necessitated hard line internet
to get those phone boxes running.

My goal in having whoever did my wiring was to get a clean high quality job done, with as much wire concealed as possible. That's what
did, and it was work well done. The work took a few days because the property was large and there was a lot of wiring to
. But when DirecTV did come out, they simply installed the dish on the
, then connected the boxes in each spot where we pre-laid coaxial cable. They activated the system... and everything's up and running in HD. So the
wiring works.

Same with the dsl lines. We threw additional routers up in the cold spots. Up and running... no problem!

Price here were very reasonable for the work. Would call
and
again, they did a good job and I could tell he has a strong and enthusiastic work ethic.

Bill, the owner, showed up 5 minutes early. i told him what i wanted to do. he made some additional suggestions and informed me of products i didn't even know existed (programmed lights & windowshades) they sourced all the products for me, finding the best VALUES in audio and video, and put together a system that looks and sounds GREAT! 5.1
big screen heaven! Then they ran wires all through the house before we put up our dry wall. miles of it. then, once the walls were up, they came back and hooked everytyhing up and programmed it. now i have one remote that controls EVERYTHING in my house audio video heating/AC windows lights AMAZING. and you don't have to be an
geek to operate it (tho Bill IS one - he makes it all understandable.) fast, courteous, cost-effective and PROMPT. they gave me a bid, and told me how long it took. it didn't cost me one cent more and they got done early. what more do you want? five stars. SOOOOOOO happy i found them, and I've already rec'd them to 2 friends. Bill's the bomb!

When I called my dish company to re-attach the dish I was told it would take 3 weeks before they could come out to do the job. I then looked on Angie's List for someone that could do the work in a reasonable amount of time. I contacted

and we made an appointment for 2 days later. Aarusha (a very nice man) called me on the day of the appointment to confirm, which I appreciated. He was very punctual and professional and got the job done without any problems. Due to my positive experience with

They have told us that we were having problems with our high definition. They told us that they do not do customer service for the existing members and that we would have to pay the $80 for the service call. It is their equipment.

I had to call and cancel the appointment and when I called, they said that they had me down from 4-8 that same day. They had logged the time wrong. I then rescheduled for the following friday when I could be home and they gave me an appointment between the hours of 4-8. I never heard from them and I tried calling at 5. I waited for about 45 minutes and never got though. I called back at 7 and finally got through to someone after waiting a half hour and they said that they did not have me down for an appointment that day. Yet again, another mistake. I made another appointment for the following monday, I had to stay home from work. They said it would be between the hours of 8-12. I called at 7:30 to confirm and I finally got through to direct tv and they gave me the phone number of the contractor.

When I talked with them, they said that someone would be out between 9:30 and 9:45. They called again at 10:30 and said that they were on their way. The guys finally showed up at 11:50. When they arrived, they said that they would only install cables on the external surface of the house which is not how it was installed before. I did not want the cables to be installed on the outside of the house, I wanted them to install the cables in the attic where they had been installed previously. Since they were unwilling to work in the attic I decided to cancel the order.

One of the room's installation did not work, the existing boxes were hooked up incorrectly, and one of the cables was installed in the wrong room. They came out a second time and that is when the fun started. They claimed that the satellite they installed was defective and they did not bring a back up dish so I would have to make a new appointment by calling

as they had many other appointments in the day. They then refused to install one of the cables in the correct room claiming that we had to pay for it. When I told them I took half the day off for this appointment and asked if they could return to their company and get the dish to install the day of the appointment they became belligerent and hostile. They insulted my wife and me and were very threatening. I tried to defuse the situation as I felt very uncomfortable with two hostile installers. I was concerned for my wife's safety. They eventually left after doing nothing. I contacted

and filed a complaint.

When the installer was on the roof, he was very disrespectful by walking on my tile roof. He damaged many tiles and I had to pay to have the roof fixed. I was so upset that I canceled services immediately.

They came at the exact scheduled time and were very nice and professional. They even warned me of some problems I might experience with the new service.

I called to have an old DISH Network satellite dish removed from my home. The prior owner had DISH service and the dish had been installed in a very difficult place just a foot away from incoming overhead electrical service into the house.

took my call and scheduled an appointment promptly. Their technician arrived on time and was professional and thoughtful about how to get the dish down without causing damage (or injury). He got the job done in a timely fashion. No complaints.
