I have fios in house. Not so much for tv although I have them over Comcast because they give me better local HD for slightly out of market Washington. I live in condo and can't pick them up ota.

Fios is in house for Internet but if I try to trim the services down from a bundle, I spend more. Weird.

I supplement my Directv service with Xfinity to be able to watch the HD versions of HUB, HLN, ID, H2, IFC, WE, G4, COOKING, FUSE, GMC, TV1, LMN, STYLE, HSN & QVC since Directv does not yet carry the HD versions of these channels. All of my premiums are with Directv. Xfinity HD quality is not as good as Directv's but I just hate watching those channels in sd. With Xfinity I also get every local channel and all sub channels. Hopefully one day Directv will carry the HD versions of these channels and I can dump the Xfinity service.
