The cloud based system, IMO, sucks. Response delays to your remote commands (due to it having to go to the cloud and back) and no rewinding of live TV (important feature in my house).
I recently switched to Fios because of Cable jacking my price, and their indifference to me being a loyal customer fro 22 years. Went to Fios Quantum. Their DVR service is much better, as it's in the hardrive of the main box in your home, and each box feeds off the main, so no delay, and you can rewind live TV on any TV.
Funny thing is, 2 months after I switched, Cable knocked on my door and was willing to give me a better deal than I asked for originally, plus they were willing to pay any termination fees. Big sticking point for me, their cloud system, so I declined.

Displays are like 100% cotton t-shirts. Always buy a size larger than you think you'll need, as they tend to shrink over time.
