It is a few weeks away from the 1 year anniversary of my switch to Time Warner cable , after years of be a loyal everything package Dish customer. I still have some Dish services, slowly detoxing myself...I am down to the familiy package now . So, how was my switch to Cable? For the familiy it has been much better, by far a much easier process for multiple room viewing. For channel choice and sports programming it has been far better. I have had useful regional channels added like NBC Weather Plus, New York 1 news channel, NY Legislature Channel. I have more baseball from the stations in my DMA than I ever imagined with Dish (I get Mets, Yankees , many Indians games via Channel 12 Erie, PA). I got nobe of these with Dish ! I get several useful Candian channels. In general it has been much easier, no fighting with Dish about their incorrect description of blackout rules. Also faster channel surfing ability than Dish. The things cable can't match (at least my provider).... The picture quality (non-HD) is not as good as Dish. If I was rating Dish picture quality on a 1-10 scale, I would give it an 8. I would give TW cable a 7 on the digital channels and a 5 on the non-digital channels. The DVR from TW cable is just plain terrible compared with the one in my 510 Outages. My DSL Internet connection hardly ever went out. My TW cable Internet service has weekly outages. My TV service also has occasional outages . more than Dish. My year-long reduced price deal with TW ends soon. It would be fun if Dish offered me a sweet deal to lure me back...but the familiy would go nuts.
