    Only cable, no dish or ATT.

    If you have a 4 tuner model, it can do OTA.

    It depends on the area you reside.

    Very few places have more than one cable company. The vast majority work fine with Tivo. What's available in your area?

    These days, most people who drop cable just switch to streaming and/or OTA, in which case your bill goes way down, and you can sell your Tivo (or keep it for OTA).

    For the record AT&T is also very dishonest as are most cable companies.

    When Comcast gives me more trouble than I like, I just drop them for the period required to be eligible for New Customer Status and get the good deal for 2 more years.

    I either leach off the xfinitywifi or use my phone hotspot for the 60 days. Not a big deal.

    Just saying cable cos are dishonest is only a partial truth. They also don't give a crap about the satisfaction of their customers. They don't have to since they are a monopoly in most served areas.

    Just look at the hundreds of posts of cable company statements in this forum.

    - We no longer support cable cards
    - You must have a cable box for service
    - You won't get your subscribed channels without a box
    - We don't have any cable cards
    - Tivo won't work on our system
    - Your bill will only be $30 (they neglect to tell you about the $12 broadcast fee, administration fee, wire maintenance fee, FCC fee, lease fee, DVR fee, additional outlet fee, or that your bill will double in 12 months).

    It goes on and on and on. EVERY cable company has said these things, all of which are lies. So EVERY cable company lies.

    Last time I checked, the company is responsible for training its own employees. And by definition, "reps" represent the company. So, it IS the company.
