Calling all Chicago members, or any members that can help me to decide on which sat service to use for HD. I have gotten the OK from the boss (wife) to do this, so I need help now! Who's got the best resolution? Who's got the most HD programming? Who's got the most "regular" channel selection?
At this point it's not a matter of who has the best HDTV right now but more a matter of who is more dedicated to this technology and will embrase it more. At this point DTV and DishNetwork are just dipping their toes into the HDTV waters so you really can't go strictly by what being offered now. Saying that, I myself have gone with DishNetwork because they are more pro-active with new technologies and such as DishPlayer and local broadcast channels etc.. Also I know Dishnetwork has a promo for a free system and install if you subscribe to $39.95 of programming for a year and I assume DTV has something similar so whichever you choose you will have to stay with for a while and the one that will embrase HDTV the most in the near future is the one you want to go with. IMHO
