You've been threatening to leave for a long time, why not just pull the plug and do it? There is no entitlement with DirecTV no matter how long you've been a customer.
No matter who you go to you're going to face price increases. You might as well accept that and just choose who you want to stick with. Your only other option would be a Roku, AppleTV or something like that so you could watch shows on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Streaming.
I tired. I had Uverse for the last 30 days. I liked it and it had pluses and minuses.
Right now I decided to stick around a little more with DIRECTV for a few reasons.
But D* makes things tough when you hold out for stuff, Like I waited for Nomad, not worth the price and won't run on a JB iOS device. Same with the iPad app. Still not way to get DIRECT2PC to run on a Mac via Boot Camp or a mac compatible app.
I borrowed a slingbox HD and its nice, but not ready to shell out the dollars, just to watch TV on my iMac.
yes, every company is going through price increases. But for what i am paying for DIRECTV, I don't think its going to be worth in the long run for what I get out of it. I am just playing the waiting game to see what AT&T does.
