I love their ads they have about direct tv charging extra fees, so does Cox..
I might switch over, but rain fade IS an issue here, and it gets annoying when we try to watch something, poof.
The whole cable/sat industry is in the sh*tter. Not entirely their fault - the content providers are equally at fault by pushing the per subscriber rates to absurd levels.
Across the board, all providers are slowly declining in viewership.
An interesting trend is that the younger subscribers face a stiff price barrier to entry (low income,) and are finding better value by getting their content from the internet (to include social media like youtube.) I suspect that this is why their subscriber counts are dropping, and will probably continue to do so until the content providers radically change their business model.
