There is the C-band satellite services if you live at a place where you can put up a larger dish of 6 foot or more and programming is almost half price. Free To Air (FTA) satellite programming is also available. You can get FTA with a 30" dish and no matter where you live it is legal. For some of the satellites a 4 foot dish is better for some of the satellites with FTA if you are in the Northern states or in Canada.
I am going to list some information about these services under "All Other Cable and Satellite Providers" within the next few days. That is if somebody else has not already done that. It could be here and I just have not found it yet.
