Is the HD quality of DirecTV considerably worse than cable?


I am moving next week, and decided to go DirecTV/DSL over the local cable company because I had heard nothing but bad things about the cable provider.


I was excited when I heard that they would be adding a lot of HD programming sometime this year, but will I be disappointed with the quality?

There are literally hundreds of topics discussing this issue.


The main issue for you, is who is your local cable and how good is their HD? The quality of each cable system, even from the same company, can vary widely.


Check the HDTV Locals Forum, and ask in the topic for your area.


Currently, DirecTV HD quality is generally worse than most cableco's, but DirecTV is spending billions on new sats due to go into service this summer/fall. When the new sats are up and running for awhile, and not before, we'll know how good or bad their HD will be.
