I'm with Direct TV and find no great value in their service. If it rains, the signal goes South. I am to switch over to my standard antenna in the attic and pick up locally. I'll probably not renew with Direct when current contract expires.

well, we pay for DVR and an HD box, so it's like $15/mos.

sounds like they all suck the same!

why do you guys think comcast sucks so bad?

the only complaint I have is that recently my FX channel changed number designations.

I have Uverse. it is awesome. The DVR is quirky, but not bad. TIVO pwns all. Coming from Tivo I don't think anything will satisfy me.

i can set my recordings from the internet, and if they do all the upgrades they are suppose to i will truely be in love.

my interent is super fast. Faster than cable modem, and i don't even have the upgraded package!

Rabbit Ears - I can't justify the expense of a service I'd hardly use. Everything we watch comes on FOX anyhow.
