I just moved into an apartment and got WOW (Wide Open West) cable. The quality is just dismal. The analog channels have pretty poor picture quality and the digital ones are far too compressed and look horrid. The audio on a lot of the channels is mono! Dolby Pro Logic II Movie Mode struggles to pull anything out of the channels that are in "stereo". Previously I had Time Warner / Brighthouse Network cable which was noticably better on the digital channels than WOW and especially better on the audio. I also had an antenna in the attic that gave me HDTV (which I miss badly). Where I'm at now I can't have an antenna on the roof (and no attic). I can get both Comcast and WOW cable. From what I've seen at other people's houses Comcast's picture quality is just as poor as WOW. I'm not sure about the audio. Supposedly I can install a Dish/DirecTV, but I was never all that impressed with the quality of them either. So, short of moving out, what can I do? Is the quality of DiSH and DirecTV noticably better than the overcompressed crap that I'm currently paying for? Should I be looking at Voom?
