    DirecTV (OR) Dish Network? I would like to hear from people from experiance with both

    Personally; I think DirecTV;
    has a better Pricing
    Structure than Dish Network.
    Though I care NOTHING about Sunday Ticket


    BUT;


    I went to My Uncle's house today who has DirecTV with an ( 42" LG) Television.

    I Have Comcast With a ( 46" Sony) Television.

    So my Question is:

    Does the DirecTV HD Look Worse because
    of the LG low Quality Television.
    (OR)
    Is it that DirecTV Uses More Compression than Comcast???

    Could it be a TAD of Both???

    Lower end Television and compression???

    In my Area I think Comcast (HD)
    Looks BETTER;
    Than DirecTV (HD)

    Lastly; Between ALL The TOP 3 Pay Providers???
    Who uses the least compression
    Comcast; DirecTV; or Dish Network?

    Comcast is getting to expensive for our blood

    I have directv and I am very happy with it. I don't lose reception nearly as much as I did with dish and I get a lot more of the channels that I like. As for hd I can't comment. I just recently got away from the old wooden box tvs.

    I have a magnavox. It's not hd. It is the most modern TV that has ever been in my house.

    I have DirecTV, and love it. Dish has less than desirable packages, chose directv, hd is great on my Sony 55", signal rarely ever goes out even during snow storms. Can't compare the HD to other providers, but it looks great on my tv's.

    We have DirecTV too and it replaced Comcast's basic package here that became a joke after the switch to digital. Been much happier since and love the TV Guide type thing too!
    Aw, Biscuits!

    Never had Direct or Dish. But from using them at family things I preferred DirectTV. We have Xfinity now, runs on several tvs'. 55" Samsung (slim and fancy) 42" ish Samsung (slim and fancy again). A projector, then a Vizio 55" in the Garage. They all look well. I prefer Samsung as my TV brand. I'm not too sure if Comcast is still connected with Time Warner... My boxes say Xfinity.

    Also a 26" Vizio in the Kitchen, bathroom, and boat. Our dock has a cable hookup on the shore power box.... Lol
