Well said. Just sitting here on the sidelines. Waiting for the Samsung Galaxy 10+ to be released last week of February/ early March, then I switch to Xfinity Mobile and save literally half on my two person mobile bill. Gave the AT&T phone people a shot to come down, not match, just come down. No budge. Customer since 1998 (and longer technically). Then the next shoe to drop is TV after that in March/April. 3 months ago up until now have called Directv, again like AT&T on the phone side, asked for help, not to try to beat what is going to be a ridiculous bundling savings with the Evil Empire. They had no interest for like the 5th straight call. Still never thought I'd switch. Been with them since the new house went up spring of 1995. Three months later I can't believe I'm gonna do it. So I'm done calling except to cancel.*** I spent the pregame of the Superbowl at my buddy's test driving his X1 from Xfinity in his second room. Yeah I'm a blast. His picture quality was solid. 53" TCL. These are the hurdles: DVR storage space. I'll figure a way to deal with half the storage space. Actually my wife will. Like all you guys, it's seems like the spouse is a wildcard in these decisions. And Rich they have Hallmark Picture Quality. I'm doing this move to Xfinity as I have their 25 channel basic bundled currently with my internet, which is driving this whole change. Last spring the basic TV made my internet lower. Anyway I'm familiar with Directv's edge here. I watch the major networks and select premiums along with NHL CI & MLB EI the most (and NFL). My wife, who is not as picky watches Lifetime/HGTV/History/A&E with networks the most. She's not there studying 720 vs 1080 like I am. As long as I have ACCESS to the sports packages and Showtime to stream, I'll get the better quality. Channel selection/HD selection. Know there is fewer channels and HD with the Evil Empire, but for what we watch we're good. Again, if I can sign in and access certain things, all is good. Internet speed. Will increase from 60mbps download to 400mbps or 1Gig depending on which package I settle on. I need neither. There's a whole list of differences, some GOOD and some no. But saving $30-$40 going from AT&T mobile to Verizon/Xfinity a no brainer. Then the documented bundle savings of going from XTRA to their second or "best" most comprehensive package; about $100/month. Yeah it's right. Including the landline. Now the *** above....I heard that D* has an unadvertised Family package at $30. Not sure if that would let me keep D* to access NHL CI and MLB EI which I'd rather do as mentioned in previous posts, I like to flip between games with a remote and this is worth part of the extra money. THE BIG SECOND...I have grandfathered networks. Hoping the above idea let's me keep them. Interested in any opinions/thoughts. Thanks for yet again letting me vent.
