I am in Philly and about to switch from Comcast to DirecTV . That means I will be able to get Setanta and FSN. But is there any downside to DirecTV ? I mean outages to satellite reception in bad weather or anything else ? I could also choose Dish Network - does anyone get that ? Some people say I should wait for Verizon FIOS which will have everything that the satellite channels have but on cable. It is not yet available in my area and nobody in Verizon seems to know when it will be.
Incidentally Verizon offer a package of phone. internet and DirecTV which seems cheaper than going direct to DirecTV - any downside in this ?
I am on Comcast with the digital package. I receive Fox soccer, Goltv, Fox Atlantic, Fox Pacific, Fox South, 2 outdoor channels, 2 NBA, Tennis, and 2 from the Big Ten. I am happy. Though I don't get Setanta, however the pub is only 10 minutes from my house. I will be there Friday morning at 7:30 for the Fulham match.
