I would just get Dish or DirecTV, but I might be moving to Westerly, RI after the summer and they have Cox there. I believe they have atleast 80 HD channels. Oh it will be sooo nice!
I have family who lives in Westerly, RI...Yep, 80+ HD channels, good stuff too(but, can see a lot of compression). Here in Ledyard,CT just Crap. I have Dish now but, I wood prefer a true 1920 X 1080 picture vs. a 1440 X 1080 that dish has (I think it looks soft) and my Media Center system is cablecard ready, so that is why I monitor here. I also kept Comcrap for internet.
The other reason I moved to Dish was...On one of the pages here, someone posted a copy of their bill and at that time, they had over 60 HD channels, I compaired bills, I was paying the same exact price and only getting 7 HD channels (besides locals). I just could not get ripped off any more.
I just wish I could get FIOS here....almost Uncompressed HD... I have seen it, it blows away Dish, Comcast, Cox and DirectV for picture quality in most areas.
Venting over...I think it's time for me to start looking for another house
PS. If your thinking of doing something now, Dish might be the option, No contract if you pay for the hardware (basic HD box $99), and a TON of HD (directv requires a contract) but, If you are, like me, a Red Sox fan, you will hate their Part time HD sports channels(NESN), not every game is in HD on Dish network (claim, the HD channels will only brodcast the Games in HD but, this year they have missed 10 games so far)
