  • Have DishNetwork...and LOVE it....Cable sucks...customer service it rude and they will keep you on the phone for hours and then screw up your whole bill so that you end up paying them more money...Nope....I switched and LOVE it...when it goes down....which is almost's back up without much wait...not like days with cable.....and it only goes out in the very worst part of a storm....never just because it's cloudy or a small rain....LOVE IT....can't say it enough!!! LOVE IT!!! LOL!!! I got slammed and switched to U-Verse....that only lasted about 2 days...and I was calling Dish Network again....they came back and got me hooked up and running and I will never.....EVER....leave them again!!!

  • Cable. It's cheaper here. We pay about $35 or so for the basic cable in all three rooms and the dvr box in the living room. I like having cable. I used to have satellite when I lived with my mom and didn't like it. The smallest cloud comes by and the picture is going crazy.

  • Cable... We only have like 20 channels or something and that's more than enough!

  • We currently have DirecTV and I am totally satisfied with them. I have also had Dish Network and cable through our local phone company before. I was never impressed with Dish.
