Used to work for comcast. U-verse can stream i believe 16 mbps download which is more than enough for netflix. I hate comcast as well but running fiber its hard to beat their speed compared to an ancient phone line that U verse uses.

I only keep comcast because i get ESPNU for college football

Yep, I've got all the ESPN channels, including ESPNU, with the U200 package, which is a lower-end package. The only package lower than U200 (U100) does not have it, I believe. But U200, 300, and 450 have the ESPN family.

They have whole-home DVR, meaning you have 1 DVR box, but every other box in the house can set up recordings as well as watch what is recorded on the DVR, so essentially every box is a DVR.

And it's just like Comcast, you can pick and choose what services you want. I just have TV and internet, but I could easily add home phone as well, or I could drop one if I decided to use another company for TV or internet.

$170/mo for 3 HD boxes w/ 1 DVR and 12mb internet. Uverse also is very lenient with offering discounts as well as extending discounts once they've expired if you ask. For 6 months I paid $134 for the same service, and then for 6 months after that I paid $155. I'm just now paying the full rate.

Have you ever had Comcast TV?

Not on my own, no. But when I lived at home I did, and when I lived in the dorms at Bama I did, and my parents still have it.

It wasn't bad, but in our area we are prone to some issues that I chalk up to Comcast in Memphis and not Comcast in general. I just think that it has better features than Comcast TV. For instance, (and this first one is a super small feature) but when you use the guide, you have a small PIP-like window of what's on the channel you are currently selecting (Comcast has the small PIP window, but it shows you what you are currently watching), but instead of the generic blue background that Comcast has around that PIP window, Uverse has a slightly faded video of what is still on the channel you are currently watching. So, for instance, if I am on Comedy Central watching South Park, and I pull up the guide and browse to CBS to see if How I Met Your Mother is on, then I will see HIMYM live in the small window, but still have South Park in the background in real time. Like I said, it's a small feature, but it's a nice feature.

The main reason I like Uverse TV over Comcast is because with the DVR you can record up to 5 shows at once (or 4 shows and watch 1).

Another huge plus for Uverse over Comcast is the ability to have wireless boxes (this might require Uverse internet, I am not 100% sure. Might want to look more into it before you base your decision around this feature). Basically, instead of plugging my HD box into a cable jack, this picks up the cable signal over my wireless internet, so I can hook it up to any TV, regardless of whether I have a cable jack there or not. For me this is huge, as I have several rooms in my house that I don't necessarily want a dedicated TV, as it might not get used hardly ever (guest bedroom, music room, back patio), so if I get 1 wireless box, I can just bring a spare TV into that room when I want to watch TV there, but the rest of the time I can use that TV and box somewhere else. Super convenient.

When my wife and I moved, they have me that $130 deal again. It's awesome.
