    Has anybody tried Cignal? Just got in touch with their CS and installation is P4,900 (includes the dish) for 21 reg channels (standard broadcast that is), and add-on for HD is P390/month (that's for the NBA finals and History Channel). They would still be adding for to their HD line-up. By the way, it's a prepaid service that you have to load up.

    Interesting. Dream has sucked badly this past years and Cignal seems promising. Is Cignal the PLDT-owned DTH provider? Do they have a website?

    Yeah it's under one of PLDT's company's, Mediascape, under the holding company of Mediaquest. They still don't have a website yet but I just got a hold of their ad in the Philippine Star. You can email them at [email protected].

    That's right, I think they initially offered their services in the Bulacan, Rizal, and Laguna areas. It's only now that they are starting in Metro Manila. Looks like they followed the same route in launching like Smart Bro.

    The person I talked with on the phone told me that each TV requires its own box.

    Digital boxes really work that way. One for each TV.

    yeah, got a response. additional PhP3,700.00 for another STB & installation. plus PhP312.00 on your MSF. of course that doesn't include added costs if they require longer cables.

    As tempting as Cignal is, I can't bring myself to subscribe to a service that doesn't carry ESPN or Star Sports. (Dream Satellite no longer carries them as well)

    Guess I'm stuck with cable.
