So I went ahead and got uverse TV installed. They have a 30 day money back guarantee so no risk. I have to say I like it. I kept my TWC DOCSIS 3 Internet because its clearly faster and cheaper than uverse Internet. Also this way my Internet bandwidth is not shared with TV.
HD quality is better than I remember it last time I tried it 18 months ago or so. I find it acceptable.
More channels, less money.
Only one DVR to record 4 shows.
Light years better UI to the STB than cable. Also much faster responsiveness navigating through the UI and switching channels.
It has apps! Personalized weather, stocks, sports scores.
I am keeping it and dumping cable TV.
