Currently I have Top 200 Dish with a 522 DVR feeding 2 HDTVs
I get my internet and basic cable from Comcast (the reduced cost of internet when getting TV almost pays for the basic cable, plus it has clear QAM HDTV and insurance over thunderstorms on the Dish). The basic cable feeds those same 2 HDTVs plus 2 older SDTVs.
I am thinking of upgrading my Dish to get HD programming or dropping it to get a Comcast or FioS bundle.
I was wondering if anyone has done a comparison recently or programming + equipment costs.
If I keep my current situation, I was thinking of either adding or switching to a VIP 722K DVR (or two of them) or a Hopper with some number of Joeys. It looked like a Hopper + 1 Joey is $19 and then if I wanted to feed the other TVs that would add another $14, but since they are SDTVs that may be a waste. But maybe having 2 VIPs for 2x$7 per month would be best or some other combination.
Anyway, if someone has done the analysis of various costs or has some advice on just keeping Dish with some kind of upgrade, that would be appreciated.
