I'm Going With Direct TV

POST #    886

Despite my desires for having cable and a cable modem, it doesn't look like Time Warner wants my business. Fools! Because of that, I've turned to Direct TV, which has a lot of upside. Over 150 channels for $42.99, a TiVo box for $100, and a free DVD player. You know that come September, I'm signing up for NFL Sunday Ticket, so anyone that wants in on some football know where to go.

I also signed up for phone and DSL service from Verizon earlier this week. I think there is some line testing that is still required, but I hope it works out, because I won't be able to live without a high speed internet connection. I did all the Verizon stuff online too.

Tien-I'm moving in as soon as you have the tv and cable plugged in. Dont worry, you'll barely even notice I'm there. I'll keep the volume down low.

you won't be sorry. tivo is the best part of that situation. i'd give up a lot before i gave up my tivo.

scrolling through 150 channels can become its own pastime on par with watching tv itself.

welcome to the tivolution, tien. welcome.

tomorrow I plan on writing up a comprehensive review of the hacks I've implemented on my series1 tivo. It's incredible how easy it was actually - and the benefits? oy.

joel, i await your review of hacks for tivo. hopefully i can use some for my directTV tivo.

I put it up, Tien. I'm not sure how extensive the hacks for Directivos are but I'm pretty sure you can at least upgrade the hard drive in there.
