I loathe my cable company. Their prices are sky high due to zero competition and they offer very little for the basic plus cable package. The quote I got for digital was outrageous and it makes me ill to give them any more money. I was waiting for Verizon to run fiber but that looks to be at least 2-3 years away and I don’t want to wait that long.
That being said, I'm considering a switch to Direct TV. Best Buy seems to sell the best package and it also comes with Tivo. Some of you out there must have this? What do you think?
I'm so not one for hassle so if you find this to be a hassle in any way, will you advise? Also, is it true that new wires would have to be run? Our incoming cable is not in a southern exposure and I know it’s not going to be easy to run these wires through our old stone wall where studs are not on center. I dread what this will do to my interior.
I also want to add that I had digital cable for 6 months for a promo but was informed that I'd have to wait another 6 months for another. And the hassle of the box is just too much to deal with. Their prices are seriously too disgraceful to keep the digital subscription during non promo times.
Help me decide please oh please?! Is it worth it? Do you love it? I have been trying to educate myself on satellite but haven’t found any comprehensive sites out there yet.
