Depends on who I ask. If I talk to a Comcast CSR from the call center in Canada, they will tell me yes, Comcast HD is available in my area. Even punching in my info on their website tells me HD is available. The local office in Lehigh off of Homestead says it is definitely not available. The truth is the latter, it is not available in my neighborhood and won't be until they "rebuild the system" (a quote from the local office), whatever that means. They will not give me a timeline.
The Series 3 Tivo will definitely even the playing field for me this summer to consider going back to Comcast since any new DVR from DirectTV from here on out will not be driven by Tivo's software. I pay a $60 bill each month to them anyway for high speed internet.
I say "even the playing field" and not "tip the scales" because I'm not sure the Lehigh Comcast office has ever hear of Cable Card technology. Also, the FM / Naples market will eventually be able to get local HD channels via DirectTV, albeit only through the new MPEG4 DVRs, not my HD Tivo.
So it is a quandary, but since I've moved here four years ago, I've bugged Comcast about HD in my area. A year and a half ago, I gave up and got an HDTivo and signed up w/ DirectTV and fell in love with the Tivo (so did my wife).
My satellite signal has rarely been a problem. In fact, I never lost signal during Hurricane Wilma. OTA reception has been a different issue and last night was frustrating. Nothing was different on my end, but sometimes lots of moisture in the air like last night seems to make multipath worse. But again, the only channel affected was Fox4. All the other channels were good, but American Idol just isn't the same in SD.
Oh well, that's my story. Can't wait until WINK gets up and running so I can gripe about their issues too. :-)
