I don't know where y'all get the energy or time to watch tv... I've got hundreds of movies and shows saved on my laptops but even working part-time with my company haven't had the time to watch even one! Maybe it's because I'm old and being awake makes me tired??

Millis provides all of its drivers with a directv setup including the satellite, receiver/dvr, 24" flat screen TV and a full package of channels, movies, NFL ticket, etc.

I'm happy we have it because I'm sure I would need more data from Verizon if I used Netflix, Amazon, NFL online, etc. more than I do.

Well, for me, Pete, it's usually one of two things: sitting at a customer knowing it's not going to be long enough to get good sleep, or right before going to sleep. I can't sleep in quiet, so I usually put on some kind of movie or show and drift off before it's over. Makes for some movies where I've watched the beginning hundreds of times, but never finished it. lol

Of note on the Direct TV thing, I talked to them today and apparently one drawback is that to get that unlimited deal you give up the ability to tether, so no more turning your device into a wi-fi hotspot.

Yea as Dan mentioned, there are times I'll be a day early to a delivery and have to sit on it, or wal mart will take 7 hours to unload me. I also have issues sleeping, there are nights I can't stay awake and nights I can't shut my brain off.

I have been seriously thinking about getting our Direct TV package as well especially since I have a little more downtime now that I am tanker and not flatbed. How do I even go about it at Prime? Just curious. I met the 6 month requirement as I am now in my 10th month here.
