Advertisements Streaming video quality would be a function of your broadband service. I see a lot of people quoting prices on satelite and cable but I don't see those deals available on their web sites. Is $36 a month a first year rate or is that indefinite? In any case it's $422 a year at that rate plus $72 more for the DVR. Are you including their taxes and everything? I had Dish and after it went out for a solid month during the playoffs and other things they did made me swear them off forever. My TW cable bill was close to $100 a month with DVR and that's without any movie packages. It would be $120+ a month now these several years later (they raise the price every year) and I didn't really consider it a loaded package. They have bundles now but at "introductory" rates and I don't want to use their digital phone service. I would never go with a monthly on the Tivo. Bite the bullet and get lifetime. Multi-unit discount puts lifetime at $299 so my latest purchase of two Premieres and lifetime is paid for in 8 months over the cost savings of cable. My antenna in the attic is not large probably about 2x3. It's a DB4. It all depends on where you are relative to the broadcast towers though. With streaming available, the only thing I miss is Monday night football and a few other sporting events. The channels we thought we had to have - ok that I had to have, don't miss 'em at all really. In fact I'm glad i don't have to see a lot of that crap especially CNN and Fox and MSNBC and all their self-created strum and drang.
