I had DirecTV for years and switched to cable a few years back. My cable lineup and Tivo are both far superior to DirecTV in every respect except sports content (which I couldn't care less about). Having said that, both satellite and cable now cost far more than I'm willing to pay for TV anymore. I'm going to drop back to OTA and PS Vue, saving about $50/month. If it turns out to be too painful, I'll get cable again. I don't see myself ever going back to satellite unless I have no other choice (move out to the boonies, etc.).
