I would also consider Dish, but the DirecTV deal at Costco makes it very tempting. I will be looking at second year costs and early termination fees very closely though.
If I could get someone other that Knology for cable when it does finally roll out there I would easily consider it, and get some Centon tuners (or HDHomeRun Primes if they are out then).
It's just that the channel offering from Knology is pitiful for what they charge.
I am a Dish subscriber since 2007. I had Knology before that. I like Dish and have had few problems.
The decision on Dish VS. DirectTV depends on what you like to watch.
If you are a sports fan and willing to pay for the sports packages DirectTV is the way to go.
If you watch more general channels and movies Dish is better.
Both have more HD channels than Knology.
Is Internet service part of the decision? I get Internet from AT&T DSL. It is not as fast what you can get from Knology. No bundle discount with Dish and AT&T.
Good luck on your decision.
