I have DirecTV SD, some channels are good, some are obviously quite heavily compressed. I can't get HD because of trees. Which is just as well, because many people have previously commented on the quality of the HD signal being transmitted by DirecTV. Ironically, I belive that the moniker HD lite
was invented to describe the "HD" being sent by DirecTV. Maybe things have improved recently.
Choose wisely. You will have a 2 yr commitment. No commitment with Comcast.
As of right now, my understanding is that the best PQ is from FiOS. But I won't switch, since I'm too cheap to buy more TiVo HD boxes to replace my 4 DirecTiVo receivers.
