Been a TWC customer forever, but moving and wondering what my best option is. I have researched the package prices and they're relatively similar. Looks like the TWC bundle of phone, net, and cable is very competitively priced.

ATT has a bundle that includes Dish Network. Anyone have this package and have a review for me?

You can do a search in this forum and find many comparisons. Personally, I think DISH blows DTV and TW out of the water. Best HD signal in my opinion. I think they're supposed to have nearly 100 HD channels soon.

Also, do a google search on "dish versus directv" and you'll find multitudes of articles.

I have Verizon VOIP, Dish Network, and MI-Connection internet.

Another thing to consider is the length of contract. With TW it was around a year( i think). Both Dish and DTV required a 2 year commitment to get any sort of reasonable rate. I wanted Directv(simply because I wanted the NFL package) but I couldn't convince my roomate to go for the 2 yr contract. I personally don't have any problems with TW(although I seem to be lucky bc many friends have)
If I could pick any one though I would def. do DTV

We just ditched TWC for tv and went with DirecTV. We get more channels and save about $30-40 per month. I'm still looking for options with phone service since we're paying $99 for phone and internet from TWC. Too much if you ask me. TWC gets too greedy with their prices. Bundling only saves money with that company...not in comparison to other companies. Don't let that fool you. They apply a miniscule percentage discount to your services for bundling...but you still may (and probably will) get a better deal if you go with someone else for that same service, un-bundled.

Windstream does a bundle and price match with Dish, phone and internet. There isn't any contract.

I had Direct TV in Florida but I much prefer Dish here in NC. Equipment is easy to use and I love the channel line up.

We've had Dish for 6 years and have no complaints. Just upgraded to HD and the quality is great. We pay around $120 (including tax) for America's Everything Pak, which includes all the movie channels, the TurboHD gold package, and locals (standard def. and HD).

We've never lost our signal with DirectTV, we get a clear picture and I love the music channels.
