It has been years since I have visited this forum, so please forgive me if I am seeking information that might seem repetitive to the rest of you. I have been with DirecTV for nearly ten years and I am at a crossroads. My contract has expired with them so I am no longer obligated to remain a customer, but I have also seen the price jump dramatically now that my contract has expired. I contacted customer retention hoping for some kind of offer to retain me as a customer by making my monthly subscription more palatable, but they were only willing to drop the price ten dollars per month. A couple of years ago, they lowered my monthly by $40 and threw in some movie channels for a six month period. With that said, I am seeking a new service provider. My choices in my area are: Dish Network Brighthouse AT&T U-Verse Aside from sheer cost, I am mainly concerned with picture quality. Several members of my family have U-Verse and I am not impressed at all, so they're eliminated. That leaves me with Dish Network and Brighthouse. I can only assume that Dish will be similar in quality to DirecTV. I have no experience with Brighthouse, so it's difficult for me to compare. In terms of cost, Brighthouse would probably be the least expensive way to go, as I would save money by bundling TV and internet. Would any of you have any advice or insight about these two services? Or perhaps any other suggestions? Thanks!
