We are moving in a month; and I am wondering about digital cable in Yardley. What is the best service? Does anyone use Direct TV?

If one of you has to have ALL Philly sports, you pretty much need Comcast though I think Directv will also be carrying comcast sports; if so, get Directv.

If you don't care about sports so much but love movies or High Def, or just don't care at all, get Dish Network - best prices and customer service, their DVR is not Tivo but its free cept for the monthly rental fee and its great...you can get 1 box to operate an HDTV in one room and an analog tv in another, thus avoiding a second box fee of $5 a month...I love Dish.

Also Verizon may offer FIOS fiber internet and digital tv in that area...worth looking into but I've had so many bad experiences with Verizon where I'm currently living, that I would never use them for tv...too many internet outages that could become tv outages...I also had problems with Comcast outages as well...

Get Dish, you will not be disappointed!

In that case, you'll probably want to check with DISH and DirecTV to see if they offer YES, MSG or any other NY-affiliated sports channels. Even with the arrival of NYC-area transplants, cable companies in the northern burbs may not have acknowledged that with their programming just yet.

I would bet Directv would be the way to go as you can get packages to get all games of a sport, NFL Sunday Ticket, for example...
