I thinks it's okay! I have the premium package, excluding the sports deal and I pay roughly $140.00 monthly. A lot of the time the same movies are on over and over . I Had it for about 2 years and only blacked out maybe 5 times from bad storms. Overall, I like it.
They give you a lot of crappy channels and play the same damn movies over and over again - unless you are willing to pay an arm and a leg for for anything near decent. Unless you've got big bucks - it pretty much sucks!
I love it! We've had it for over a year and we haven't had issues even when we had 6 inches of snow at our house. It's always really windy at our house too and we're in Washington so it rains a LOT but those never cause issues. We have recommended it to a lot of people and they all love it too.
