    I voted all is not what it seems. I honestly don't know if I would go with anyone right away anyway. Would be a great excuse for more time for the family to focus on something other than TV.

    But, eventually we would want service again. But we hate cable..we hate Dish ...I dunno.

    Cable service at my place is provided (allegedly) by a old Adelphia office now run by TW. I would have to rank Dish and OTA so far ahead of cable that if they weren't available I would watch what I could online, or just wait for the DVD on netflix.

    Oh I am soooo going to get reamed for this one. I'd go for FTA. Then again if there was no DirecTV I'd probably work for dish and have an account from them.

    Our cable supplier is Comcast -- no thanks, been there, done that, twice.

    No access to FIOS, so it's a no-brainer: DishNetwork AND OTA.

    I had to vote cable because E* doesn't provide our local networks in HD. If they did, cable wouldn't be an option.

    Didn't vote because Verizon's FIOS is not listed. Their TV service is not yet available in Washington State, but I've heard lots of good things about them.

    Cable isn't an option. The cable provider for my area is Charter and it is awful!

    When I subscribed to D* (USSB), Dish didn't exsist(I don't think), I had cable (now Comcast)which I never would go back to. I suppose I would, with no other choice, be a Dish sub currently.

    In Louisiana Charter is awful as well .. so I would hit Dishnetwork again.

    If I was back in NYC I would go back to cablevision.

    Cablevision is about 50 x better than charter.

    took me 3 days to get rid of Charter after coming over from NYC.

    When I was having problems getting converted from the 2 dish, 3 LNB setup that I had to the Slimline, I was planning on converting to Fios.

    Initially I'd use OTA and FTA while I investigated the options and cost to get HD via C-Band. Fios isn't available here or it would be my first choice. I'd never submit to a 2 yr contract with Dish, and Comcast is not even a consideration.
