Thanks to everyone for responding. I will get my local channels in HD. It's the other locals (that i've never heard of) that are in SD. But all the locals (like NBC, CBS, Fox, KCAL, PBS, etc) are in HD. My installation is Wednesday, no DVR, just wanted the HD box, so i don't know what number box until Wednesday.
Apparently i just made it......they went back to the normal fee late last night. I got the "Big Deal" which also includes the "Referal from a Friend".
Now i have to give TWC the bad news.....although i'm keeping the internet. I might drop down in speed to save the extra money, don't really need the blazing fast speed, just the basic. Installation should be easy. Most of my building already has DIRECTV, he was here a couple of days ago for another install (talked to him, really nice dude). I'll unhook the TWC box late Tuesday and also the cable modem which will then reconnect connect back to DirecTV. I'll let everyone know how it went.


Please let me know how everything is. I am thinking about dropping TWC too and getting DirecTV.

I will do that. But i believe the "Big Deal" is over, at least for now. I would keep the TWC Internet, that's what i'm doing. If someone you know has DirecTV be sure to use the "Referal from a Friend" offer. My best friend, who has had DirecTV for a long time, gets $10 each month for 10 months as well as myself.
