I totally agree man. There is absolutely ONE thing keeping me from getting DirecTV and the beloved NFL Sunday Ticket.
That one thing is: No Japanese Channels.
Ya see, my wife is Japanese. Born and raised in Tokyo. She wants the ONE Japanese channel that is offered on Dish Network. Not only does that suck, but that ONE Japanese channel is NHK. Why does that suck? It sucks because NHK is Japanese FUCKING PUBLIC TELEVISION. IT SUCKS ASS!
I know that many of you will say, "Man Up!" and "Just do it" but the new HDTV, AV receiver, 5.1 speakers, and Dish Network, are all coming out of the "Family Account." The wife and I created three bank accounts a while back; his, hers, and ours. The his and hers are our spending money with 10% of our paychecks going there. The rest goes to the Family Account. All purchases from that account have to be mutually agreed on.
Considering my wife came to me and said we should get a big screen and the fact that she hasn't bitched at all the "extras" I've gotten for the big screen, I have to let the Dish Network thing slide. It's a bitch, but thats why our marriage has been great for 12 years.
However, the SECOND DTV gets a Japanese channel, I'm paying the early termination costs and kicking DNet to the fuckin' curb.
Oh, but I am going to try something else too. I'm going to try and get my iTunes to get to Apple's Japanese servers. If I can do that, I can buy Japanese TV shows and stream them to the TV. If I can do that, then I can talk the wife into DTV. Wish me luck on that...
