    I'm currently a comcast or xfinity whatever you want to call it user but curious as to what may be better.

    Heard good things about ATT Uverse but have never experienced it in person.

    FTR, I have not upgraded to the new X1 platform comcast offers.

    We have Wide Open West or WOW!, as they call it. A few years back, they were ranked #1 by Consumer Reports.

    We only have internet though, I could never give up my Directv.

    i have comcast now. just got the new X1 voice remotes. they are pretty cool and the new guide is great. I had direct TV a while back. i got rid of it because of the signal going out all the time with this south florida weather.

    Yeah I don't think I can do directtv down here for that reason. Almost every time I'm watching a game in a bar the feed goes out or freezes for a little bit. Drives me nuts.

    give comcast a call and tell them you switching to Direct TV or U verse. i did, they sent my the X1 stuff UPS and i installed it myself 2 days later. it is a huge difference from regular comcast DVR.

    Never had the joy of being a Comcast subscriber. They have one of the lowest customer satisfaction rates. Seem like a bunch of assholes.
