    Just dropped mediacom for Dish

    I'm only a few days in but man it's great so far. Picture quality is better, and the DVR system (hopper and joeys) is just plain awesome. As a bonus I no longer have to deal with the scum at mediacom. For the life of me I can't understand why anyone with options would be a mediacom customer. I can't wait for football season.

    Re: Just dropped mediacom for Dish

    I just made the switch this week. It's great. The only thing I am going to miss is the Mediacom channel do to ISU athletics.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Just dropped mediacom for Dish

    Dish sucks for sports compared to DirectTV. Even with all its problems, if I lived in Iowa, I'd be on Mediacom as a Cyclone fan. Don't know why fans continue to go out of their way to bash them since they are helping our program.

    I pay like 70 per month for mid level hd package with 2 joeys.

    I live in Iowa and didnt give a second thought to not having cyclone tv. I dont see much value in their on air programming at all.

    It's not really going out of your way when you try to support them, but get terrible service and quality.

    Re: Just dropped mediacom for Dish

    It's the Cyclone basketball games that keep me on Mediacom. I am assuming with the new TV contracts, they won't be broadcasting football anymore. I've never really had issues with Mediacom service or quality, except the awful basketball game broadcasts. But if they go HD, it should be much better this year. Price is my biggest complaint.

    Good point. Applebees is a sponsor, too, and I don't feel like I should eat there.

    I actually have mediacom...I've not experienced many problems with them. I do like the perks of some of the bball games that are on there. When my contract is up I may consider dish or whatever, but now I'm ok and I get my internet through mediacom too.

    Real Tivo alone is enough to keep me on Mediacom. Cyclones TV. Gotta have the cable modem anyway for speed.
