Direct Link To This Post Topic: Direct TV or Cable - Which should I get
    Posted: May/04/2010 at 2:56pm
I'm trying to figure out which option would be best.  However, I have no experience with Direct TV, so I'm asking for your input.  Currently, my cable+internet is about $80.  If I switch to Direct TV, I can lower that by $20.  Of course, this is if I were to be able to have Direct TV for only 12 months.  Of course, is not possible because Direct TV requires a 2-year agreement.  I've heard many stories about cancellation prices and all that.  Some of them are pretty bad horror stories while some are pretty mellow.  I've been told and also read that the cancellation fee is equal to the amount of months that I would have paid if I kept the service.  Is this true?  Also, are there any other fees?  I've read the Customer Agreement, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it.

Reasons for considering Direct TV: more and better channels than my current cable service.  cheaper, in theory, if the cancellation fee isn't too high.

The reason why I would want to cancel after 12 months is because I am not sure where or what I will be doing after my last year of college.

Thoughts?

Also, if you're going to just tell me what you like best, then GTFO please.  I'm not asking that question.

i would do direct tv and i learned how to work the system.

if you live in an area with lots of trees (me in tahoe) or in an apartment that is north facing (me in sacramento) you can not have direct tv.

here is the trick:
In my investigation, if you move in the middle of your 2 year contract, direct tv will gladly transfer your service.
If you move to a new home that does not allow direct tv (apartment, forest, etc). then they will gladly cancel your contract for free.

I had direct tv but the rates kept going up so I switched to ATT U-verse for phone, internet and tv, much cheaper and no commitment.

We were comcast for years (comcrap cable!) and moved into the city, got a deal for directTV. Parents got a better deal a month ago from Comcast and switched back... for a day. Couldn't stand it. The UI on DirectTV is amazing. Like Mx2 said, if you can work the system to fit your needs, DirectTV is worlds better then cable. You could always try calling them and seeing what they can do for you - a lot of the companies in that vein are able to do some *remarkable* things to get new customers.

One is left to wonder how much nicer our world would be if they just did those cool things at all times.

my advice is...down the road if you need to cancel your contract, just tell direct you are moving somewhere where you can not continue service

like
1. North facing
2. room mate already has direct tv
3. forest

the system can be worked

IMO, my mom was able to weasel our way out from being raped by Comcast a few times. We've been paying $20 for our Internet connection for 3 years. We just need to call in to knock down the TV part.

If it was up to me, I would go to U-Verse. But Comcast is in the middle of tweaking their pricing structure a bit - they supposedly got rid of the additional outlet charge, instead charging you for each additional box/DVR instead of getting you with the additional outlet fee and box rental fee(and the HD fee), as well as rolling out a digital economy tier that sits between limited basic and Digital Starter.

it can be worked, but i'm not sure if i want to risk paying a lot of money if i can't work it.  do they confirm that you actually can't continue service before accepting that?

Have you tried calling Direct TV and talk to a real person and tell them you will be moving in a year and see if they can just set you up with a 1 yr contract? They will do things if they think they can get your money, even for a year. I've had Direct for 15 yrs, but never had to cancel it. But they do keep raising the prices, but then everything keeps going up too.

After having both, DirecTV is the clear winner over cable for everything except internet.  My experience also suggests that both are pretty easy to terminate a contract with, should a need arise.

Shake and bake...

I heard if you have multiple rooms, just ask for extra set of the DirectTV receivers installed. Then you can get that receiver over to another house and as long as you have the satellite dish install, you will be able to pick up the receiver. You can share the costs and have receptions on 2 houses.

Disclaimer: That's what I heard from someone. I didn't do this (I have cable). Stealing satellite broadcast is illegal so I don't recommend it.

Personally, I like cable internet, and directtv for tv. If you can, try to get that combination. It'll be the best of both worlds Tongue

DirectTV has packages (esp with their sports) and variety (ie different time zones) than cable. But that could also be a downfall because it takes forever to channel surf, if you are type of person who like to browse the TV a lot. I think Cable has the best internet experience. You might want to go with jeffalmonte89's idea, but that would probably cost you extra.

Also about the early termination fee for DirectTV, it would cost you $20/month remaining, so if you have a year left, you will pay $240 in early termination fee.

thanks for the input guys.  i decided to go with cable tv.  i was able to get the same service i have now with slightly downgraded internet for the same price i pay now.  that's pretty huge considering it was going to be $40 more.  i'm not too worried about the downgraded internet because i'll be living with 3 less people next year.  i don't get the great packages that Direct TV has, but i'll be paying less overall.

I've had both, the problem with direct tv is they don't have affordable broadband internet connection so you'd have to get it in combination with At&T.

I currently have Comcast 4 rooms + 20 MB/s Internet service for 89.99. Direct tv + ATT equivalent combo would only give me 6 mbs so no can do. One thing I like about Direct tv is they don't raise their prices often compared to cable.

this is why i wanted Direct TV, but i was able to muscle a 12-month deal out of charter so my rates won't go up.

If you want to pay less, get together with your neighbors and get the comcast 20MB, you can share bandwidth with your neighbors. My cisco wireless router can accept 1006 connections and reach 2 blocks and still get 8 mb/s

I use to have charter, I hated their service the internet would go down about once a month. Also they have a 100 or 150 gig bandwith cap.

Splitting is the best way to go, if you can't afford it. Becareful though if the people downstairs uses programs like Bit torrent they can really slow down your connection and easily reach the 150 gig cap.

without wishing to hijack.
 
Have you considered cutting your service to zero or limited basic.....
 
Theres plenty to do in life and with a DVR/Hulu etc  there is plenty to watch.
 
 
Yeah I know I am a tight fisted git,  but handing over about a 1,000 a year for TV adds up fast....

i would talk with your cable provider about you switching to dish tv and see if they can give you a better promo offer.
i've had both before and while dish is good, the reliablility of cable can't compare. I live in the northeast and everytime there was a storm the tv would freeze and seize up from the wind or whatever.

Out of all the cable companies, Comcast seems to have their crap somewhat together. TW, Charter and Cox are all clusterfscks...

Cable still sucks IMO, but we've played Comcast to our advantage at times.

I would do cable only because there is  no contract. I think if you include TV and internet together, comcast gives you a pretty good deal. I really like having on demand to watch tv episode that I missed or local sports games. Its a pain to trying to cancel direct tv and on storming days, it was really fuzzy for me or nothing playing at all.

I work for Comcast, so its a no brainer who I would suggest.  I dont know who the cable provider is in your area.  Ive been to friends houses who have dish of some sort..never liked it, and that was before I started workin for Comcast.  I have no problems with my service at all.  Most of the problems come from "Harry the homeowner" doing things himself.

No offense to any comcast workers but they have done me and so many others wrong for years when they had a monopoly. Now they are kissing butt to get people back. I will never forget what they did to me, it deserves it's own thread. There customer service is famous for being horrible here in Michigan.

I have had Direct TV for 5 years and love it. There customer service is excellent. They have great channel selection and easy controls. I get rain fade maybe once a year and all you do is reset it by pushing a button on receiver, no biggie. Plus if a direct tv cust. refers you, they'll pay you each $100.

Just hooked up a new HD box from Comcast, but I feel like swapping it out for a Motorola DCX3200 - the Pace RNG110 seems to not like my TV, when the video modes are switched, the TV will go blank for a minute.

Comcast just won the coveted golden poo for the Consumerist's Worst Company in America.  They've also managed to screw me on pretty much every interaction I've ever had with them, so you can consider me biased.  Some of the more entertaining anecdotes:

We had some line problems whenever the weather got bad.  They sent out a tech who arrived late and tracked mud all over our house.  He told us our line problems were due to running the cable line under the carpet.  Apparently carpet has some magic anti-HDTV capabilities that only activates during storms.  Who knew.  He also didn't understand how we were getting channels without using their shitty digital box (Built-in QAM tuner).  After he left, we still had the same problems.  Still got charged a service fee that was mercifully reversed by a friend that works there.

I was sent a past-due notice for $0.00, threatening to send me to collections if I did not pay immediately.

Shoot, if you had a PS3/360 and you have a decently fast internet connection you can just drop back to Limited Basic/U-Basic on AT&T and get Netflix on your console. $10/month for basically AYCW movies and TV shows.

Getting your service canceled due to NLOS(no-line-of-sight) or LLP (Landlord Permission) is not usually as simple as calling into the CSC and claiming that you're moving to a unit w/a North facing balcony. You would first need to transfer your account information to the new address and set up an appointment for installation. The tech would then have to do an on-site survey to confirm NLOS. Often times, depending on the office, the LLC will roll out a Field Service Manager or another tech at a later time to confirm NLOS.

I HAVE INSTALLED PLENTY OF DISHES ON UNITS W/NORTH FACING BALCONIES

Have you looked into Dish Network? As far as I know they have a prepaid account option that doesn't require the same type of contract as the typical 24mo contract. Also, their standard DHA24mo commitment is neat in that the cancellation fee is reduced by every month that elapses on your account. Besides a commitment isn't really a big deal anyway... how is it any different from your cellphone service? Are you not going to carry a cell because of a 2yr contract this is probably less forgiving?

After that first sentence I was SURE you were gonna say DirecTV.  You totally threw me there Wink

no because i plan on having a cell phone for more than two years.  the only reason why this issue came up for me is because i will be moving, and am not sure where to or who i will be living with.  it wouldn't be an issue if i wasn't moving.

I know that I am a good tech for my company.  One of the unfortunate things is that most people "think" they know how to fix things...and what the problem is.  I know we do have some lazy techs, but the good ones know their stuff.  I have never had a problem where I live...ever..except for normal system downtime due to upgrades.  Its like that with any company...thats the conclusion that I've come to.  I do wish our customer service is better..to say the least Big smile
