Ok, I'm moving from TX back to Warner Robins GA. Last time I was there I had Cox Cable, which wasn't terrible, but not great either. here i've had Time Warner cable, and I've never wanted to go on a murderous rampage more than when I have to deal with TW. Their service sucks, their support sucks, their selection sucks, and their price REALLY sucks. My experience with TW has me ready to swear off cable all together. I'm thinking of going satellite for TV when I get to GA. How do they compare in terms of cost vs content? I'd like to not pay more than $100/mo for TV+internet unless there's a LOT to offer for the price. So what's the opinion?

I'm going to look into this. I haven't read the thread yet.

Having been to texas enough for 100 lifetimes, I can tell you that the best part of Texas is WEST if I-35. If you stay east of I-35, you really get a bad impression of teh state.

DirecTV.

When I lived in an apt., Atlantic Broadband was the ONLY choice. The HD channels were lacking plus it seemed overly expensive.

I now have DirecTV. They offer a myriad of packages, depending on your preferences.

I still use Atlantic Broadband for internet.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 7:44:22 PM EST
I've had DirecTV for the better part of five years. Love it, but it goes out when it storms. We'll have Comcast/HD when we get there.

That said, I'm moving in a few weeks. Wanna buy a dish and two boxes?

I didn't say it was great, I said it was better than east of 35, namely Dallas, Houston, Laredo, and the Henderson-Carthage-Timpson Triangle of Doom. Getting poked in the eye with a stick is better than being impaled by a telephone pole, but it doesn't mean you will like the smaller chunk of wood. {/thread hijack}

Sound shots by Texan hunters into the brush of Colorado? As a little kid, I had no idea where Texas was, but by born-and-bred Colorodan father used the word Texan as a swear word.

Still does.

I voted "cable". I've had both and cable is way more reliable. My satellite receiver loses signal in medium to heavy rain.

FWIW:
I dont have a home phone so no land line fee's.

I have Comcast Cable for TV and Internet, my last ISP speed test was 12mb/1mb, I can live with that. Costs me about 115.00 a month.
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 9:09:19 AM EST
Cable sucks. Dish may not be too much better (I don't really know, I can't comment) but anything is better than the crap I have. If you even hear the word "Charter" DISENGAGE!

Yep, read the contract. I hate how people just overlook crap then think it's the companies' fault that they're stupid

Check around. It appears that TimeWarner is about to go to tiered Internet use. The more you use it, the more $$$ they suck from your wallet.

I use DTV and DSL... no more cable asshats for me!
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 9:15:23 AM EST
Oh, and one more for the people who will tell you dish goes out when it storms, our cable goes out when it storms. Our internet is absolutely awful and we have the "best" package they offer, running us 80 bucks a month on internet alone. The only way I'd ever recommend cable to anyone is if you're getting Comcast, otherwise go DirecTV
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 9:19:35 AM EST
DirecTV rules, ATT Uverse is pretty attractive as well if it's available in the area.

Then there is a problem with your installation. Why not have it fixed?

lolwut?
everyone I know has problems in FL when it rains really hard. Not some random shower, but tough, 2" diameter sideways rain. I had WildBlue satellite internet, and it would go down easier than the DirecTV in a storm. The aim was spot on, but it's the nature of the technology.
