Can anybody make comments on the picture quality of BrightHouse , both HD and SD, on large screen TVs (above 60") ? We will have BHN here in Heathrow very soon and I wonder if I will regret or not to move from Dishnet to BHN. PQ is a very important issue to me since a remember the terrible picture I had from TWC when I was living in NYC ( I had digital cable).
Glad to hear Heathrow FINALLY got off their duff and decided to dump that AWFUL cable service they had. You will be happy with your Brighthouse service!
In comparison to Dish Network, DirecTV, et. al., you have to remember that Brighthouse Networks (along with just about every other cable company) still has a tier of channels that are broadcast via analog signal. By definition, it will have a lower-grade picture quality then your Dish signal. Of course, argument can be made that in a perfect world, analog should be right up there with DBS-based signals, but we don't live in a perfect world, now do we?
Brighthouse DOES offer you something Dish can't offer you....convenience. In order to receive your HDTV locals, you will need a OTA antenna, which your homeowner's association will not like. **NOTE** I did not say they can do squat about it, just that they won't like it.
As for their HDTV signal, there's no complaint about the picture quality in comparison to Dish, and you should be happy with either signal.
Hope you find this helpful!
