My parents are visting me and I would like to get SunTV. Currently I am subscribed to Verizon FiOS through my HOA - so I won't be able to cancel it (I am paying for it through my HOA fees). So, what is the cheapest way to get SunTV?
The cheapest I have found so far is - Dish says that if I pay $150 for the equipement, they install and activate it for free and then I pay only $15/mo for SunTV or $25/mo for SunTV and KTV - no contract. So, I can cancel after 4 months.
Is anyone watching numTV by cinnecting their PC/laptop to the TV ? How clear is it?

If you dont have to pay for local channels monthly, that is a good deal I think.

Or dont tell anything to Dish about cancellation, just sign up without any contract(installation should be free) and cancel after 3-4 months.

i'm in the same position about SunTV and KTV, but i think eluck is right, i talked to another friend who did this and they cancelled their suntv and ktv package after 2 months, they reactivate it everytime their parents come to visit.

Yes. don't tell Dish that you want to cancel it. Startoff with sun/KTV package plus few other Channels and then strip them one by one. Just for SUNTV alone it is difficult to get free installation without contract.

so, if I understand it correctly, sign up for america 100+suntv/ktv for $45/mo - no other fees and just cancel after 4 months?
But since they are not charging me for dish/setup for now if I sign up, would they charge me an ETF or anything after 4 months?

I called again - I don't think you can get away from not signing a contract AND availing free install. They said that if I commit to 18mos then free install+basic package+suntv. If I don't, then $50 for install+basic package+suntv.

So my options are:
1. $50 isntall + $20 basic +$25 for sun/ktv for 4 mos = $230+tax
2. $150 dish+install + $25 for sun/ktv for 4 mos = $350 + tax

Has anyone tried watching NUMtv on your TV?

Initially I was reluctant to watch SUNTV but after started watching it I really enjoy it. You can also add HeadLine NEWS and SONY Channels which are pretty good.
