My grandmother got me a Primestar to keep at her house when I was nine years old. Because she lived out in the country and did not have cable. It was so awesome!

    one of my childhood dreams was to have a satellite dish. Primestar beacuse it had game show network and begging dad to get it good times

      When I was having my house built in '98, I saw this commercial. I knew I had to get Primestar. Before then, I lived at my parents house and we never had cable, so this new idea of satellite tv blew my mind. It was everything I expected. So sad it didn't make it for long. I too remember the DirecTV guy coming over and switching it out. I wish it could somehow make a comeback. Great memories of that time in my life, I'd give anything to go back!

        I also feel Primestar should make a Satelite comeback

          I remember PrimeStar from when I was little! Too bad DirecTV had to swallow it. I remember the day the DTV guy came and set up our new dish and took away the PrimeStar remote. The stump of the PrimeStar dish now sits in our backyard.

                Ah man! I had a primestar and I loved it! It was given to me when I was nine years old, Christmas 1995. I got it to keep at my grandmother's because she lived in the boondocks in Alabama and did not have cable TV. It was back when TV was good! Now it's hardly ever good. Plus, you could get network affiliates but they would be from other areas. For instance, On my primestar I got

                NBC WHDH-Boston
                ABC WSB-Atlanta (My hometown!)
                CBS WUSA-Washington DC
                Fox-KTVU-San Francisco

                Now you have to get channels from your own area, but it was so cool! It got better when I got my favorite channel in 1997, The Game Show Network.

                  Oh I forgot that in 2000, Primestar got absorbed by Directv.
