about Atlantic BB such as no INHD, no ESPN2HD, etc. By the way I've been told
ESPN2HD is in the works. Anyway my questions are:
How does the picture quality compare between Atlantic BB HD vs D*tv HD
or simply how is the Atl BB HD picture quality if you can't compare to D*tv HD?
Does Atlantic BB have a DVR for their HD package?
Does the HD package include CBS?
Thanks for any input!
I am satisfied with the picture quality I get with ABB, both SD and HD. I can't compare directly with satellite on my TV, but my picture looks better than some satellite HD that I've seen on other sets.
Regarding the channels, I am a little disappointed that I don't get INHD or ESPN2, but thrilled that I get all four major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox) in HD, as well as ESPN, a PBS channel, and several others. The CBS HD feed is KDKA from Pittsburgh, not WTAJ in Altoona, but that's no big deal other than the local news, which isn't in HD anyway.
Yes, I have an HD DVR cable box that I rent from Altantic BB. It's not as user-friendly as Tivo, but it works. You can record two shows at once on it, which is nice.
Getting all of the local networks in HD is a BIG plus, enough to keep me on cable and away from satellite.
