On Demand is a very valuable service to me even if not HD quality.
Had Comcast for 3 years then switched to FiOS. I enjoyed my Comcast service and my plan all along was to take advantage of the first year package discounts and switch back to Comcast to get their pricing discounts again.
My one year was up in October and there was no doubt in my mind...I re-upped with FiOS. The only wildcard for me whether or not the sale of FiOS to Frontier was going to impact future service. There was no real risk there (if service deteriorates I can switch back to Comcast) so I re-upped. The key features that kept me hooked to FiOS:
- Incredible picture quality. Absolutely love it.
- Internet speeds and no bandwidth capping (25 down 15 up)
- Multi-room DVR. Love that my wife and I can watch our family room DVR while on the treadmill or in the Master Bedroom.
- I really like the online DVR scheduling...use that a lot (Comcast may now have that?)
All in all, no complaints. Hope I never have to go back...
