    I have Adelphia here and really don't care for them. I have been pondering getting satellite for a couple of years but keep finding new reasons to wait.

    Recently I heard that Adelphia might be taken over this year, by Time Warner maybe? Anyone else heard this? I can only imagine this would IMPROVE my opinion of cable, since I am not at all happy with Adelphia. Also, hopefully, I could get more HDTV. Anyone think this is a good reason to wait and see how thinks shake out in 2005?

    Interesting. I'm pretty happy with the service/selection offered by Adelphia in my area. The "tech" people don't seem too up to date with hardware/software issues....but hey, it's the cable company right?

    This mornings paper said that Direct TV increased its subscriber base and lost more money ($250M IIRC) and Voom is pretty close to history, so I don't know what that bodes for the satellite industry either. My best guess is that either venue will end up costing more in the future and provide a lower quality product (pretty safe bet [​IMG] )
