Advertisements Well, NO FIOS here, and when added up, I would be paying about $45.00 more a Month for a comparable Cable offering, then what I have now. Also, that is using the Cable Companies DVR's. If I went with Tivo, then add the cost of a Series 3 or TivoHD. So I would be paying $45 + a Month more. That makes great sense. Also, there is a ONE Year Commitment with the Cable Company. So I would rather have the extra Year Commitment and save $45 + a Month. As for Directv being old school technology. They are the leader in HD. Read it in any Newspaper or Magazine. And with the New Birds and added HD Channels, it does look like Cable is more "old school".
