I KNOW people are passionate about this because so many of the cable companies are notorious for bad service, so if you really have an opinion, please chime in!
ATT UVerse and DSl are by far the most reliable. I worked for TWC and Directv and ATT uverse and ATT was always low maintenance and affordable

I have had issues with my TWC DVR box(ES) since having the first one installed over a year ago. I think I'm on number three or four now. Also have had issues with their service. I do like their high speed internet. I really wish there were a way to pay a bill online without having to sign up for automatic bill-pay, though.

We've had a "dud" DVR box too. Ended up exchanging it for another and haven't had problems since.

I pay online each month and I don't do automatic bill-pay. I refuse to do that as I've had problems in the past with other service providers double-dipping so to speak so I log on each month and pay.

I'm moving to a place where currently, my beloved U-Verse is not available. I'm looking at going with DirectTV for my TV needs. Is it possible to get one of the lower end packages and pay extra for HBO and Showtime (required in my house) and still be worth it, or do I have to just suck it up and purchase the most expensive package that includes HBO & Showtime?

Suggestions?

Suggestions?
HBO & Showtime are available as add-ons with the lesser packages ($14.99/month & $12.99/month, respectively). The least expensive package, "Choice", is currently $58.99/month with local channels, after expiration of new-customer promotions. HD channels are not included with the lesser packages, so again, another add-on and an additional $10/month if you want them.

So, for example, if you got the Choice package w/local channels, with HBO & Showtime, your total would be $86.97/month, less taxes. You would not have HD channels, or DVR service at those prices with that package.

DirecTV offers heavily discounted rates for your first year of service, which generally requires a two-year commitment. Penalty for early termination. Also, the contract installer who comes out to install your service may also have you sign an agreement to keep your service active for maybe just one year. This is not the same as DirecTV's two-year agreement. It protects the installer against a possible chargeback from DirecTV if you terminate your service early.
