"DirectTV is terrible. No honest "On-Demand" feature."1.5 starson by nathanaevans
Pros: Lots of channels. Decent HD picture
Cons: On-Demand movie can take up to 7 days to download! That means you sit down to watch a movie, but after you order that movie, you may have to sit for up to 7 days until it finishes downloading at some unpredictable time.
Summary: You can do better. You may think cable sucks; that is, until you invest money and have a huge dish and lots of cables and boxes all over your house. They get you to invest with half-truths and then you're stuck.
