So I have a friend at work who I was talking about switching to U-Verse, I tried talking him into DTV instead of it based on you can't have 2+ DVRs, or lack of HD pic quality. But his main argument was that "in the end" U-Verse TV was cheaper. (He has Comcast now btw) It was a slow day at work (I'm a Firefighter) so I threw together this quick Excel sheet. Some info about it, First, he is WANTING Two HDDVR's, Second, He has AAA, so I added the AAA Discount to DTV, couldn't find any such discount for the other providers. Third, in our area, we have DTV, DishNet, Comcast, and AT&T, so only they are listed. All promo's listed are for the Indianapolis Market, zip 46113. I figured I would post this here, because it turns out over a two year period (life of contract) DTV is cheaper even after up front lease fees, plus he would get that 2nd. HDDVR that he can't get on U-Verse. If even one person finds this useful besides him, I guess I didn't completely waste my time!
