What is Better, Digital cable or Satellite?

Satellite is better for two main reasons.
The firt reason is that every channel carried by the satellite provider are 100% digital.
The second reason is that the rates of my satellite service have only increased $6.00 during the five years I have been using it.

I have never lost the signal or received a bad picture, such as snow or ghost, during the five years I have been using a satellite to receive my TV entertainment!

When I was using digital cable I always had a bad picture that had snow and ghost imagies. On several occassions I lost all of my cable reception for a day or two due to some type of cable equiptment problem.
