Originally posted by mrollCox now has the full information (and an 800 number to call) on HD installation, pricing etc. on their website. What I didn't realize previously is that you have to have the $52 package (standard service plus digital tier) to get the HD receiver (another $10). I was hoping to just add the HD service to the basic $16/mo. service. Since there's no way I can stand to watch their crappy analog channels anymore, I guess I won't be dumping DirecTv for Cox anytime soon. Time to look into OTA again.
Getting my DirecTV this week. $33.99/mo. + $10 for the HD package starting July 1st. On Sunday I got the Zenith 520 Receiver, triple lnb dish, and installation for $550. Since I haven't cancelled the cable yet, I ran the feed through the Zenith instead of Cox's DCT 2000. The picture is a fair amount better, I swear.
You can't get OTA, huh Mike? I stuck a radio shack antenna in my attic and I get everything.:
I'm high on the hill off Camino Del Cerro. Location, location, location...
I'm guessing most of the ESPN is not HD? Looks stretched and no better then NBC when I saw some Tennis on each this morning.....
It looks like ESPN averages less than one HD show per day. ESPN-HD
In 2004, SportsCenter is slated to be HD along with more events, of course.
