Verizon does not compress any further from the signal they get like satellite and cable do. Vz looks great on my 55st50 but when i had dish most of my viewing was on a 32in TV and there is no difference there. But might be different on a big screen. Even on the st50 coming from having a 40, 47, 50in TVs last year before getting my panny, 2 LCD and another plasma, the st50 shows off more imperfections if the station's just isn't that good. So if i did have dish on it who knows how it would look. Sd also looks very good on fios while it looked awful on dish. The only thing I would say about fios is if you do switch make sure you get the new Dvr, all black moto, worlds better than the old ones. We actually switched to dish because those were so bad and only went back because I had a chance to try out the new one at a friends house. I was even about to cancel the install when he was only going to put one in and the other two were going to be the old ones, I got all new ones after that, we have 3 dvrs. They are still not as good as dish boxes but much closer and probably better or similar to cable. Plus to me the internet in itself is worth it, we have stayed with them for internet for 5 years, with the TV and without because cable could just not compare, no downtime, no slowdowns, we have a big family with lots of devices and they all get the rated speeds even if we are all connected at once.
