    Have you heard of HBO Go? You can watch virtually all HBO content (movies and series...all of the series) from a PC or mobile device. DirecTV has ALL of that HBO Content OnDemand.

    HBO Go is amazing on the Roku as well. I know that Dish allows this, but I do not think DirecTV does.

    Don't need a Roku with DirecTV since they already offer all of the HBO Go content in HD and DD 5.1.

    In addition, DirecTV also has MAXGO, Showtime Anytime, Starz Play & Encore Play.

    MAX On Demand has all the content that is available from MAXGO and in better picture/audio quality.

    Showtime On Demand has the equal amount of content available from Showtime Anytime and in better picture/audio quality.

    One thing to mention about directv on demand is that its now a streaming/download service. If you let it fully download you get same PQ as OTA. If your impatient and ur internet is fast enough u can stream it now. Netflix has really bad motion blur if you ask me. But as others have mentioned the movie channels are the best on-demand. PS showtime will be following suit with HBO and offer all episodes of show series sometime this year.

    Can't believe no one has mentioned NFL Sunday Ticket yet...

    Probably because its out of season. I'm well aware of it, and not sure I'll get it when it rolls around its not even offered right now to sign up early for.

    It actually is but only the max version. But most won't commit to it yet. And I'm shocked its not being offered to new subs currently.

    They redesign the contract year over year. It probably will not be offered to anyone until June or July.

    Your router may be more of a limitation than your download speed in this case. Having a higher download speed never hurts but if your router is being bottle-necked from multiple devices, you may not see much of a speed increase.

    No no I can tell you the 13-14 season can be added to any dtv account already. Dtv already has the rights to it. They Bought it 4 or so years ago and there isn't a lockout so it is out unseasonably early this year.

    Good to know. Still, chances are no offers until June or July either way.

    Here is what I'm looking at getting...
    http://ww2.cox.com/residential/okla...te-internet.cox?campcode=ln_internet_ult_0329

    Look at the chart at the bottom of the page in the Ultimate column.
    My friend pays for this, gets 60+ where he lives...

    I will have it setup so that my modem will send the signal out to my gigabit switch over my cat6 cables in the wall, which goes out to my entertainment center where I have the TV, BluRay, Xbox, AppleTV, and STB (DirecTV soon).

    Switch to the lower cost Premier after the 6 months discount period and see if you really notice a difference.

    I finally bought a better quality higher-powered wireless router (ASUS RT-N66U) and that made a big difference with the wireless devices.

    The other guy is correct Hoosier. A person can add NFL ST Max for the 2013 season now, if they wish. They also offered it early last year, for customers who want to pay it off early, instead of waiting to the fall. As stated though, the base (non-Max) NFL ST is not yet available to add. You can go to Directv.com/nfl and you'll see it's available to add. If you click on activate now while logged out, you'll even see it specifically states for the 2013 season.

    In answer to the OP, I use to have comcast (still do for internet), and I love my DTV. HD is great, and if you like sports, then DTV is the leader in that department. Good luck in your choice!
