Programming Package

Not sure if this is the correct place to post so please feel free to move if necessary.

Also, do not want to start an argument. I currently do not have any programming package (ie. Comcast, Direct TV, Dish Network, etc). In my local area those are the three available. Any preference on them? I got a new Series 2 TiVo for Christmas and now need to get something to record !

The prices are mostly the same however Dish is about $12/mo. cheaper than the other 2.

Thanks in advance.

It really depends on what you like to watch and whether satellite works for you. If you already have a TiVo, all three can be good choices. My personal preference is DirecTV using the DirecTV-TiVo combination receiver. But since you have a standalone TiVo, you're going to need a separate satellite receiver or cable box (unless you go for standard cable with no box.)

Your TiVo will also record over-the-air broadcasts from an antenna, if you aren't interested in the extra channels.
