Comcast vs DirectTV vs. Dishnetwork
 
we just ordered a new hi-def TV. Anyone know what to recommmend for best / most hi-definition programming? We just ordered the comcast 3-pack (cable, internet, phone) but would consider something else if high definition programming options significantly better for direct or Dish.

We have dish network here and it works very well for us. We pay like 70 something for the highest package. It's nice.

directTV is about to bring on something like 70 Hi Def channels. That is what they said... but lets see what is real...

However, they have the NFL package... which is great if you live out of the Steeler market.

But you have to pay more for Football in Hi Def.

If you want the NFL or watch a lot of sports directv is the way to go. They should be adding at the very least 75 HD channels in Sept. Here's a list.

I think they have a special for new customers now. If you order Sunday Ticket with super fan you get 4 months free programing and a free HD DVR.

Wanna earn $50. :wink02:

I would never recommend Directv. In a 15 month service plan, almost every month the bill was jacked. The support was a joke.

Stay off the porn channels. :sofunny: jk

Been with them for over 10 years never once have had a problem with them. Bill is always the same every month, unless you watch pay per views. Never hardly have to call the customer service(unless the wife weedwacks the wire) and they fixed it for free even.

Ordering movies and so forth. Of course your bill will be a little bit more.. lol. Never had a single problem with Direct TV. There support has been great and they have always been prompted and proper. Direct TV has the best sports packages around.

All Cable, and Sat company's by Oct of 2008 will be HD anyways..

Are you sure about that?

They will be digital... as well the over the air broadcasts... but not HD. Least, that is what I have understood.

We thought about getting Direct TV when myself and my roommates move to our new townhouse, but with everything its just cheaper to get comcast. Phone, Cable, and Internet for $99 a month. With Direct TV and phone and internet it woulda been more. And since we are all kinda in the money saving mode right now we are going with Comcast. The only real perk was the Sunday Ticket that I could see and Im like 5 minutes from a bar that specializes in Redskins and Steelers games so its not like I wont be spending my time there.
