I'm back to comcast from fios. Won't switch again to fios. 2 tivos on moca and kids love the on demand free tv shows and movies. We never pay per view but missed the on demand and service that comcast provides. Picture is just as good as fios. Internet is faster on comcast, and comcast costs less than fios with top tier premium channels included. Plus like having local comcast office if a cable card goes out.

Definitely dependent on area, because I don't see this with Comcast here. There are certain channels subject to this (NBC and NBCSN, mainly) but I think the source is at fault here, not Comcast, because you see the same effects with NBC OTA. Comcast pic quality is excellent in my area.

I have to agree with slowbiscuit here. Bad source always gives a bad experience.

That's not objective evidence. I'd like to see file size comparisons off the two services.

50/10 != 75/35.
