I use comcast, the local cable provider in my town, I've also used Verizon Fios. I personally like cable the best. Comcast has a pretty nice App where I can dvr stuff from my phone similarly to the Direct Tv. Although I am not sure about viewing on demand movies and all that from my phone. Either way though I never experience service outages, and if I do, they are very great at fixing it. The cost isn't too bad, and well every year I usually call them up and complain about the cost and they usually lower the rates or give me more for free. So as a whole I can't complain.
