I just bought a new 42" Plasma and I obviously want as much HD programming as possible so I think I'm gonig to make the switch from Time Warner to DirecTV. Before I do, I wanted to get some feedback from the rest of you.
First of all, how do you like the service? Had any issues with reception in Southern California at any time? How hard is it to get a service call?
The service call brings me to my next question. I noticed when I was pricing DirecTV online, they offer a monthly fee for a service warranty or something like that so that I won't get charged $70 everytime they come out for a service call. Do they really charge you $70 for each service call they perform?
Another thing I was surprised at was the $199 charge for the HD DVR that you are "leasing." It seems like a pretty steep start-up cost for something I don't even own.
Anyway, let me know how you like DirecTV and what your experiences have been.
In regard to Time Warner, any idea of when additional HD Programming will be added? It's frustrating only having 10-15 HD channels when there are so many more channels out there that aren't offered by TW.
