No idea. I am going Verizon after the hockey season. I can't go satellite (no exclusive access areas). I know FIOS doesn't have the CI package, but I may be able to forego a year or two, just to get rid of TWC.

I have read that Switched Digital Video will be rolled out by TWC sometime in 2009 for Southern California.

Well, I took the plunge last night and got the package that includes all HD channels including an HD DVR for $60 per month including $10 off for the first 5 months because I referenced my brother as a referral.
The girl from DirecTV said that they will have up to 150 channels by March...Even if they don't have that many, it sure as hell beats TWC pathetic lineup.
Prior to swtiching, I called TWC to ask when they will be adding more channels and they basically said, "soon." Wow, what a great corp comm strategy they have... You think they'd keep their customers more informed considering their subscribers seem to be jumping ship like crazy. So then the guy tells me that other "providers" deceive their customers by saying that they have 100HD channels when most of them are west and east-coast feeds basically bringing it down to 50HD channels. The only validity that the argument has is in regard to local sports networks such as FSN and YES which is hardly 50%. I told him to fly a kite and informed him that I'll be cancelling as soon as the DirecTV truck comes.
Thanks to everyone for their advice.
