Am I the sole Comcast holdout around here?
I looked into switching over to Directtv a couple of months ago. Their HD lineup was pretty small. With Comcast, I get all premium channels in HD, the major networks, ESPN 1 and 2, and then a lot of other channels I don't regularly watch. I think the Directtv lineup was about half of the size I have now, and the only premiums in HD were HBO and Showtime.
What I really want is the NFL Direct Ticket. I almost got Directtv just for that. So far, I have not splurged on that yet. I would also love to have a reason to buy a real TiVo (although I have not had many problems with my SA boxes).
What am I missing? Is it the price? Directtv didn't appear that much cheaper (if at all). Picture quality? I have seen posts both ways. Please someone convince me I am wrong (seriously). I would love a reason to switch so I could get my NFL Direct Ticket.
How is directtv in the summer when the thunderstorms come in? Is it a problem at all? How often? What do you do to supplement? OTA? Basic cable?
