Default Comcast vs. DirectTV

My wife and I are making a decision between Comcast (which we have now) and Direct TV. I ordered DirectTV and my wife called to cancel the Comcast and they dropped the price $55.

The bottom line is that the top packages of Comcast & DirectTV will be the same price for the next 12 months.

There are no up front fees for the installation of Direct TV.

My wife seems interested in staying with Comcast because she loves all their free OnDemand movies and she was told by Comcast that there is a charge for ALL DirectTV on demand movies.

I am getting a new 1080p projector and am most interested in the HD offerings (which DirectTV appears to have more) and the NFL Sunday ticket is free for 5 months with DirectTV.

The DirectTV is compatible with Netflix so it appears we can download movies from netflix at a reasonable price.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.
