I'm taking the plunge this weekend into HD, purchasing either a 46" or 52" 1080p LCD. Make/Model insignificant - what I need to know is which HD Service Provider offers the most bang for the buck?
I currently have Time Warner Digital Cable with Roadrunner broadband internet and a wireless router. It's been great for my family with the SD content, but I'm paying $100 per month after the stupid equipment fees ($50 cable / $50 internet).
I also have 2 SD TIVOs with lifetime membership paid in full (I already earned out the monthly fees, but I think I'll regret this as we get into HD).
Looking at Time Warner, DirecTV and Dish Network. What can I expect to get in terms of HD service and equipment from these providers? Free HD Receivers or HD DVRs would be great (I hate equipment fees), as well as the most/best programming and channels - I believe Time Warner will upgrade my receiver for free.
Any advice is appreciated.
