I watched the game on Comcast HD and had no problems. In fact, I never have problems with my cable. It's only been out once for a few hours in the 6 years living where I do now and only a handful of times(3-4) in 13 years living in Philly.

Get the dish.

 

The only times I've had issues with mine is when it's covered with snow (and fortunately they mounted it within reach of my balcony), or when my wife has forgotten to pay the bill cwm27.gif

No problems yesterday with Comcast. Wife had issues the other night with American Idol, pixelations, sound etc., she was fuming.

 

From what I understand Verizon's FIOS system has some issues too, don't think your buying up.

Comcast had big problems in AZ:

 

A US television station has apologised after accidentally interrupting live coverage of the Super Bowl with a pornographic film.

In a statement on its website, KVOA-TV, based in Arizona, said it was "dismayed and disappointed" that customers subscribing to the channel through the Comcast cable network were treated to a sudden 10-second burst of a blue movie.

"KVOA will investigate what happened and make sure our viewers get answers," Gary Nielsen, the company's president, said.

"When the NBC feed of the Super Bowl was transmitted from KVOA to local cable providers and through over-the-air antennas, there was no pornographic material."

Both KVOA and Comcast said they were investigating the incident after a series of calls by viewers irate that America's biggest sporting event of the year - featuring the local team, the Arizona Cardinals - was interrupted.

The stretch of blue movie came just after a touchdown by Larry Fitzgerald, of the Cardinals, in the final minutes of the game. The Cardinals lost the match 27-23 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

watch what you wish for with fios. I switched to it 4 mos. ago. their products are great...but they haven't gotten my bill straight yet. My wife has spent at least a couple of hours on the phone every month when the new bill arrives. It still isn't straightened out.

i've noticed over the past year or so my comcast HD channels had less "pop" and more pixelation, and i thought maybe my 8 year old tv was starting to show its age...

 

i googled up some of the hdtv geek forums and it looks like comcast is compressing the bejeesus out of their hd programming, partly because of the large bandwith the analog channels still gobble up...i'm hoping once they free up bandwith with the all digital switch that the hd quality will improve...
