We've got Dish, but are anxiously awaiting the availability of Verizon FIOS (sometime this year). We pay $57/mo for 180 channels--no premium channels. We do have two DVRs, which I wouldn't want to do without. It's the only way to watch sports--you get to choose what you want to replay. You can have up to 100 hours of recorded programs stored on your DVR. Dish was better when we first got it than it is now--price has gone up twice in the last three years. They do seem to be pretty good on tech support issues over the phone.
Pop: I haven't talked to Tim in about 6 or 7 years. If I did, he wouldn't listen to me anyway. It says that he's mean and rude!
