    Direct TV vs Cable

    OK, I live here in Fargo and have CableOne.
    They are fortunate to be our only cable choice.
    I must remember to thank the city for allowing a monopoly to exist.

    So anyway, I currently have internet and TV through CableOne.
    I am looking for pros/cons of switching to DirectTV.
    Anyhelp from anyone?

    Re: Direct TV vs Cable

    I have no choice in the matter as I reside in Virginia, so Direct TV is the only show in town.
    However I am very happy with direct tv.

    DirecTv is probably the best service you can get in the United States. I don't know too much about there satelite internet, I'm sure the cable is better. Sometimes a storm can knock out the satelite signal but its rare. If you do switch to DirecTv you certainly won't be disapointed but there internet could be more expensive.

    I have my internet through comcast, you can usually just get internet with one company and tv with another.

    If you get DirecTv you will not be dissapointed... I love the NFL sunday Ticket (even if you get Viking Games) MLB ticket, NBA, NHL, Big Ten network etc. etc... I love it

    Re: Direct TV vs Cable

    I watch most my programming free re brodcast on the internet.
    I just bought a very good indoor digital antenna and pick up a fair amount of channels with the big four ABC/FOX/CBS/NBC in good looking high def.
    Plus I get a different ABC affiliate, the CW, PBS(high def and other), and a couple other random channels.
    A lot of programming gets re broadcast on the internet now, and I really wanted was the high def on the networks for sports.
    Just a thought

    As for Direct TV vs Cable?
    Direct TV hands down.

    I don't know anything about CableOne, but I had Charter and it doesn't even compare. Charter offered 12 channels in HD, DirecTv is in the neighborhood of 100 plus. Also the non HD channels come in and sound better than cable too.

    Oh, let's not forget, I couldn't get the NFL channel through cable either. So no Thursday night games for me last year.

    DTV by far.
    I have had it for about 7 years now and I love it.
    The cable here would go out all the time and their service was crapola.
    DTV had more channels, better picture quality, and their customer service is top notch.


    I will never go back to cable.
    Plus, I do get the Sunday ticket as well.
