I should say I want the tv to work all the time. I don't want a lot of hassle on a daily basis, I just want it to work so I can watch tv. I don't want it dropping it like I know bad weather can do etc.

Sample size of only one here, so you may want to take it with a grain of salt. Satellite is guaranteed to drop out for about 5 minutes twice a year, when the sun, satellite and receiver are collinear. I have Dish network. It very, very rarely drops out, even in bad weather, the UI is awesome, and personally, I don't like cable. Plus I can can get channels from all over the world. When you power goes out, and the cable goes down, I can still be watching reruns of the Three Stooges (backup power in the house here, but the cable companies only have a finite time before their CO's go down).

I switched from Cable to UVerse and couldn't be happier. UVerse is easy and reliable. The only issue is that my phone won't work if there is an emergency and no power.
