    I do not think their is a company I hate more then COMCAST. Their service is always acting up, their bills never make sense and when you call them all they tell you is to unplug the box for 30 seconds and we will send out a signal. From what I hear Uverse is not much better.
    It works 60% of the time all the time......

    Called Comcast last week because of slow internet and picture break up on one TV. Two techs showed up Monday, spend 90 minutes replacing wiring and checking all TVs and internet prior to leaving. No charge.

    The old comcast whine. Guess what , all TV companies suck. I could tell you I my comcast has been down less then an hour in 10 years and how everytime I call I get a credit and have had absolutely no problems with them. Others can tell you the same about ATT, Dish, and DTV. But it means nothing. They are huge companies, you either get a good cust rep or technician or you dont.

    If you continue to have reoccurring trouble with the actual TV/internet service then you should switch because their infrastructure probably sucks in your area and it aint gonna get fixed by a tech, only an overhaul of the infrastructure. Florida is a handful for cable companies because of the ground, the storms, and whatever else.

    My directTV service is never out. Most I have is PPV that are paid but not delivered (online fix) and then hard drives on DVRs go out. That's where my fun ends with them. They won't replace the DVR just because it locks up and blue screens with the message of bad hard drive. You have to have them on the phone when it happens and if you reset it (5 times) and reboots they won't replace it.

    Now comcast are a bunch of liars. When I moved to them for internet and phone only I had no phone from install time for nearly 5 days. They had forgotten to "provision" the system nor set up the account in the billing system. They had to find the actual tech. A few weeks later it's out again. They swore for another 5 days they could see the cable box online and I just needed to reset it. A reset takes 5 minutes or more but they can't stay on hold for that. I finally demanded the DM's phone number and they sent someone out to find that they disconnected my line from the splitter and locked it instead of my neighor. So much for seeing the box.

    Yep, horrible. But cheaper.

    My DTV goes out all the time. Thats what I have in Florida. Drives me nuts. Dish is a little better, but their equipment sucks. They all suck.

    SOunds like you need an adjustment. :) or the dish. Those HD dishes are tough having not just altitude and azimuth but a rotation as well. Mine isn't perfect here like it was at my other house but if it's really bad I just switch channel to SD. That never fades but that's not a DTV outage.

    I am not down enough to worry about it. If it happens I just use the sling box back to Chicago. I do that alot anyway. My DTV is like 28 bucks a month, seems like I only have about 20 channels.

    I had DTV and the one thing I hated was the slight delay changing channels while the it grabbed the signal. Uverse does not have that but lately I have had channels stop working, and when I call they now belong to some package I now have to buy. Between internet and TV its 190.00 a month. My complex has an agreement with Direct TV for basic service of 39.00 a month plus more for premium. The cost may now be a reason to switch back...

    I switched from Commiecast years ago for the reasons mentioned. Had Dish Network for a few years, and they were WAY better than Comcast. A couple years ago I got Uverse, landline, cable, Internet bundle, and its been the best of all 3.

    Just canceled and went Hulu, and ITV.
    The verdict is still out but I feel that I will watch tv rather than the tv watch me. I can also get into quite a bit of stuff with the $200 I'm not paying them now.

    Ditto. Have had very few problems with them and the Internet connection seems to be far superior to what other friends apparently have.

    They keep telling me to stop sending some things since they only receive in time-delayed snippets until they get the full transfer.
