Picture quality is excellent, as is customer service, at least from my local DTV provider. Don't cancel TW just yet - call DTV, tell them that you want to switch, and you can probably cop free install and free boxes, as well as 90 day promotion packages.

However since I am stuck with Comcast i threaten to cancel every 6 months and they continue to my introductory rate. Might want to give that a try in the future, sounds like it is too late to do that with TW.

I called up TWC to ask them what I needed to do or if I could just hook up my current box in the new house as it was only 10 minutes away. The guy tells me they have to send somebody out to do something or other and they can't get anyone out for 2 weeks.I say "2 weeks? Can't anyone get out here sooner. I don't want to go 2 weeks without TV. This is America goddamit!" He says sorry. 2 weeks.I hung up and called DirecTV. They got someone out the next day. No problems. I used to get service interrupted...not often, but enough to be annoying. Now, though, I can't remember the last time my picture was bad. I don't think it happened at all this past winter.I'll never go back.

Sadly, I got 4 of those things in my house that I use, and a 5th box in my office.What's Direct TV's current policy/cost on boxes?TWC ... I paid nothing up front to get em, and rent em for like $7-$8 a month apiece.Like Hnat though, my cable bill just keeps going up. Get HBO and Showtime for my boxing addiction. Paying an average of like $180-$200 a month when you factor in boxing PPV's. It's insane.
