of new promotional price but after that is over (one or two years), the price will be about the same. I have had directv before and I have TWC now and as far as picture qualities goes, there should not be any difference. I did have some problem sometime with directv...when it rained very hard. I am acturally thinking of going back to directv because they are trying to get me back with them for a $29/month for a two years contract (which is not bad at all). I am in L.A. area. You mention sports channel, which might cost extra. So check to be sure.
I live in San Diego and really don't like Time Warner Cable but I kept it because they had the San Diego Padre games.
Now they don't have a channel at the moment (they said they might in June) but Direct TV
does so I'm thinking of dropping the TV part of Time Warner Cable and just keep the internet and phone.
I would actually save money doing this also.
I tried digital cable with Time Warner but I had problems with the picture quality (broken pixels every once in way while if you can understand what I mean)
Is satellite better than digital????
