To be fair. Direct TV does say, "Better signal than cable," but then they show package prices that are in SD only. They promote the whole HD 1080i concept than show a SD price. That really isn't comparing apples to apples.Earl Bonovich said:As for the "better signal"... I don't think they specificially said "Better Then Time Warner"... just used the generic "cable-company"...
No different then Comcast in this area saying they are better then DirecTV because of "weather" concerns... Just your typical advertising stuff.
FWIW, I saw the ad here before the Bengals were going to play on NFL Network on Thursday, but the game was carried on the local NBC station. But I'm not sure if the ad said cable subscribers wouldn't be able to watch the Bengals game (obviously untrue) of if it said they wouldn't be able to watch the Thurs. NFL Network games (which is true).Earl Bonovich said:Intresting article.
I can see Time Warner getting ticked, about the not being able to see the local teams... As NFL does re-contract with a local affiliate to carry the game.
But it is "possible" that for those games, the local affiliate is not carrying it.
I don't live in those markets, so I can't check for myself.
