    150G on ATT DSL. If I go to U-Verse for the internet (250G limit) I lose my bundle discount.

    Its a racket. :mad:

    Answered my own question.

    I've used as much as 160GB in the summer months at my house, but that's with 2 adults and 3 teens all playing games and streaming Netflix and YouTube videos all the time. Last month was 105GB, which is much more common for months when they're in school. I'm only at 40GB now, but it's pretty early in my billing cycle.

    Wondering if adding the HBO package is now worth it?

    Was looking last night and see that we have some HBO and Max content in HD now. When did this happen? Now if they would just work on the networks content

    who cares about this stuff? I want Directv to deal with Comcast on it's sports channels. There is an arbitration process under the new NBC deal, so use it Directv already. Who cares if we have 2 or 10 or 85 HB0 channels, they are all the same!

    People with HBO care. And they're not the same...HBO Family caries all family friendly content.

    No, they are most certainly NOT the same. And as someone who doesn't want anything outside his RSN area, I don't really give two shakes about more Comcast nets. So there. :)

    Some of the very old encodes are 2.35 or so. Also directors who have the clout to demand it. I think Lucas and Spielberg have shown their films in scope.

    I watched, what must have been an old transfer of Braveheart in widescreen.

    Swanni wasn't right. This just proves that Swanni can read. He doesn't break stories. He takes stories.

    $17 per month - way too expensive.
