We got Direct Tv when we moved about 3 years ago and wouldn't go back to cable. There are tons of channels, and it works amazingly well with our TiVo, which we can't live without. They also have XM radio which we don't use as much as we should. My only complaint is that there should be a way you can say "no sports channels" (as an option, not for everyone) since every day it seems they are adding new sports channels and we are not interested at all. We have only had a few problems with the satellite reception and only for a few seconds at a time. Highly recommended!
