Be thankful that we are retaining channels, rather than losing them

Thanks for the data, that proves the intial statement was false and that the grass is simply the same shade in both places.

The rest of the post was irrelevant to the discussion at hand.


I was typing the response below in the closed thread, but I wanted you to see this...It's in regards to you looking to switch and basing it on HD.


BattleScott...If I were you, then I'd switch. Some advice I heard/read about buying electronics really applies here. Never buy a product based on possible future upgraded features, but buy it for what it does. In this case, don't stick with a provider with hopes channels will be added, rather, find who has what you want.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

This is not really the thread for this, but, if it were simply about HD channels then I already would have switched. Right now there are three main issues keeping me from pulling the trigger. One is that I am still under committment for several more months. I know that AT&T is offering rebates that I could use to offset the ETF, but then it is still money that would have been mine. The other is the softer HD Image on UVerse. My inner cheap-skate is currently fighting a battle with my inner HD-Snob. The third issue is the quality of the DVRs. UVerse DVRS are currently far superior to DirecTVs in every aspect but storage capacity. With the newer 65HR units though, that gap has narrowed considerably. In just a few months, we are rumored to be getting a new HD UI that is promising leaps in performance over the current version. By that time my committment will be to the point where the ETF will be less painful. If that new UI hits on all cylinders and brings the DVRs up to or beyond the perfromance of the UVerse units, there is a high likelyhood I will stay. If it is released and the performance is not as it has been touted, or there are signs that it will be as buggy as the current models, then I will very likely make the switch.
