It depends on the situation. At this point is has to do with HD quality. When I switched from TW to D*, it was pricing. I sacrificed HD content, but I did notice better quality HD. That was a year and 4 months ago. Now D* has caught up with HD offerings, including my locals. AT least for the channels I care about. Sports content is not even a consideration for me.
In May, I'm elegible for a free upgrade to an H34. That would mean a two year contract. I have to decide if I'll keep D*'s high pricing, or sacrifice HD quality and content and go with Dish in October and get lower pricing for a year. I'm not sure how they fare in local HD content. D* offers ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, CW, MY, ION, in HD, as well as PBS and three spanish channels.
