    Finally, new HD channels on Mediacom!

    Mediacom adding more digital, HD channels in Iowa | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

    Looks like today is the day. I'll believe it when I see Discovery HD on cable, finally. I've been waiting so long for Discovery and Food Network in HD.

    I like new HD channels, but I hate it when they move channels around.

    Discovery HD - about time!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Wow, 27 HD channels! Only 75 more and they'll be caught up with DirecTV!

    Re: Finally, new HD channels on Mediacom!

    I wouldn't have a problem with Mediacom having so few HD channels if they were actually cheaper. When I realized that I could get so much more content for roughly the same price the choice was pretty easy.

    Exactly. I had been getting my cable and internet through Mediacom when I realized I could switch to DirecTV and Qwest for internet, get about 100 more channels (many of them in HD), and pay the same amount.

    I've actually had more cable outages than I have had satellite outages - and with the cable outages I wasn't watching TV, playing on the internet, or talking on the phone for hours upon hours. With DirecTV, once the storm system passes, I'm back to getting my satellite signal (that is, if it went out at all in the first place).

    I realized that awhile ago, but found with the location of my apartment that I couldn't get a satellite. I'm now moving to another apartment in the complex, across the lot, and will now face south, and have the ability to get a satellite. Needless to say, July 1 can't get here soon enough so I can have it put in.

    false. I watch in the rain all the time. The only time we lose service is when the weather is apocalyptic.

    I may be snobbish about it but I don't think Mediacom's HD quality comes close to satellite. I saw one in CR and one in Waukee and they both looked horrible.

    I don't know that I could say I had more outages with cable, but my DirecTV signal has gone out maybe half a dozen times in the year that I've had it and usually never longer than a couple of minutes. I'm willing to put up with it to get the rest of the perks. And if things get really bad, I have an antenna so I can least watch locals.
