  • I haven't had Dish Network, but we had digital cable and then switched to DirecTv and LOVE it, we'd never go back.

  • We had cable and we hated it. When we bought our home and moved we switched to Direct TV and have been with them ever since. We're happy.

  • DirecTV, simply because you get more with the price you're paying. I've had all of them and DirecTV is the best. I believe I pay 100/mo and get all the premium channels and everything NFL network..LOL i'm a football junkie..can't go too long without watching a game.

    My parents recently switched to Cable..everytime i go to her house..HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and Starz would never work. It will always say "your channel should be available in a minute"'s a drag. the only thing that's good about Cable is that it has On Demand..other than that..I'd go with DirecTV.

  • I switched a little over a year ago to DirecTV and love it. Never had dish so I can't comment on them. But directv has been better than cable for me.

  •  I've recently had to go with Comcast but I'll tell ya, I really HATE comcast!!! I have actually spoken to e PRESIDENT of comcast I was so upset! I just kept asking for supervisor after supervisor. They didn't even staple the cords, they were LEFT all over the floor. The cable guy said "oh, we don't do that" I use a walker! After I told EVERYTHING to the PRESIDENT...Cable guys were stepping ALL OVER each other trying to fix my cable Its all a damn Monopoly!
