After years of subscribing to both Comcast (to use with my Tivos) and DirecTV, I've decided I can no longer afford both. The pros and cons of each are considerable. Comcast has steadily increased its HD offerings, including recently adding FoxSoccer, BBCA, Nat Geo Wild in HD, but unfortunately it also then reduced its premium movie HD offerings to one or two for HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Stars and Movie Channel. The Comcast bundle also lets me get internet, telephone and tv at a significant savings. Comcast OnDemand gives me access to lots of movies and tv shows. If I missed a Dr Who, I can find the episode on OnDemand. I can find earlier seasons of premium channel series there. And there is way more HD content available than with DirecTV's on-demand. Finally, I can use our Tivo Premiere DVRs with Comcast. TIvo Streaming has added its equivalent of DirecTV's whole home; I find the Tivo interface easier to use; and the four-tuner box buffers all four tuners, so I can switch from one to the other and see what's playing, with a buffer in case I decide to switch to that tuner. ON THE OTHER HAND, there is Comcast service that you have to deal with if there's a problem. I can't fault the individual people I deal with, but what Comcast says it charges, or says its channel offerings are both often differ with what my bill or television actually show; and the customer service people aren't much help. DirecTV, as we all know, has the best channel offerings. Its customer service people are usually quite helpful. The DVRs have gotten better, and the HD interface is acceptable. I haven't upgrade to Genie because I didn't want to be tied to another contract extension, but it does sound like a good way to solve the problem of wanting to record multiple shows at the same time. But over the years DTV has steadily increased its pricing; so did Comcast, but the extra costs do affect the customer. Over the years, as I've posted here a few times, when there's been a choice between watching something on the DirecTV DVR or on the Tivo, my family has just always chosen using the Tivo. We all know how to switch from one to the other, and how to use each one, but there you go - we just seem to use the one we prefer. A few months ago I downgraded from Premiere to Family plus Sports Pack and Sunday Ticket; but I've found that the only time I am actually watching the DirecTV box is for BeIN HD or Sunday Ticket. I get enough HD soccer thru Comcast that the loss of BeIN HD won't be a huge loss, but don't want to lose Sunday Ticket. SO, to make a long - ok, too long - story short, is DirecTV likely to be willing to let me suspend my service until Sunday Ticket season rolls around again? Because that's the only thing I really need or want. It's just too expensive to keep both, or, because of the Comcast bundle, to drop Comcast and use just DirecTV.
