If you are looking at a good reason to switch to satellite TV, then Dish Network HD Free for Life is a really nice deal. This promotion is very simple, you sign up and you will not have to pay for HD programming again. Once HD programming became very popular on satellite, both DirecTV and Dish Network have been charging a $10 monthly fee. This monthly fee would increase, depending on the HD package that you signed up for. The Free HD for Life is a great move by Dish Network, as it is a good way to get new customers, as well get rid of that HD monthly fee.
