Not a deal breaker for me but we are getting 5 months of the NFL Sunday Ticket for free.

comcast sucks big time. i can tell you many horror stories i have had with them. i was so happy to get rid of them and went with the other cable service offered in the detroit area wow. i like them, but if you are NFL junkie then you have to go with direct tv.

We have Comcast and have never had any problems with them. We have the package where we get the digital cable, phone, and internet all together. We've been with Comcast for years now and never had any issues so I don't know. But NFL Ticket for free for 5 months is a good selling point for sure!

D* also has Multi Room Viewing coming out very soon.
That's great but I can only watch it from one room at a time.

Its in beta testing right now or CE as it called. You can record shows on one dvr and watch them on a different receiver in a different room.

If you get Direct and want to get in on the CE testing let me know. I've been doing it for a couple years now and it's kinda nice to have features turned on that the rest of the public don't have yet.

Oh and the HD quality with D is head and heals above comcrap.
Sounds great Mach.

It took some "convincing" .....but the wife FINALLY gave in......DirectTV it is!


Now about this "multi-room viewing", if I sign up for it do I have to stand in the doorway between the two rooms when I'm watching TV?

I have directtv now too... have had it for a LONG time. Had some real problems with it when we first switched over to HD, but it seems that they have fixed most of it now.

A couple nice things about DTV, if you have it hooked to your network, you can download a program to your computer and watch anything that is recorded on your DVR on any networked computer.

I WOULD like to know about the multiroom viewing however...
