MDM doesn't have service in west seattle. Their website lets you enter your zip code, so that it'll automatically redirect you to the appropriate regional sub-site. WHY can't it also tell you "by the way, we don't provide service there."?
Sigh. On to plan b, then. I'll have to talk to DirecTV and see how much lube I can get them to use if I switch over to HD service. And, I should probably go ahead and check into plan c, to see how distasteful it would be to switch to comcast.
