 DH and I are moving to a different city at the end of this month.  The only option for cable is Time Warner, or we can get Directv or Dish Network.  I'm curious to know the experiences with these companies and your most recommended.  We've never had satellite, and I'm worried that if we get satellite it will go out with rain, wind, etc.  Whoever we choose will be providing internet and tv.  Thanks in advance for your suggestions!  :)

We have DirecTV and love it. No issues to speak of. We've had it a few years

Xfinity cable. It works out great! We did satellite and it was terrible.

So glad to see this. We just got Directv. And everyone is saying we will hate it. We have had issues with outages, we live in OK, but the customer service has been amazing, and I found it to be a better deal than Dish.

We've had Directv for almost 10 years and have only had minor issues that were resolved quickly. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

We only had one issue with them. We got the Genie and for what ever reason, we could not watch any paid VOD or PPV movies. They replaced the box. Still didn't work. After months of this going on, repeated calls to tech support, they still couldn't figure it out and they finally had the top level tech support person help, and he or she was perplexed. Sent out another technician, everything was connected as it should be, so he replaced the box. It FINALLY worked. We had somehow gotten two defective boxes.

I wish it hadn't taken so long to resolve, but I still wouldn't trade them for anything.
