I'm not too familiar with satellite. I have cable, which is perfectly fine living in New Jersey. There are so many people here, the cable has to be good (although I don't know what the standard is for cable in less populated places...)

Side: cable

I have to side with cable on this one simply because cable doesn't drop out nearly as much as satellite, and don't even get me started on those confusing remotes.

I also never tried satellite cable, too. Truth is, I don't have much time to watch tv anymore aside from late evening news so cable is perfectly fine with me. It's also much cheaper, and I can use some savings these days I'm on the verge of being a broke.

I have had both and living in Florida you lost satellite when storms move in and sometimes for no apparent reason at all it will go out. I had Dish and it was horrible. The only awesome part about it was the DVR part ( like TiVo ). Cable doesn't just go out on you during heavy winds or a storm. Cable is dependable.

I have cable TV, and although it isn't perfect, I do prefer it over Satellite TV.

I tried to get Satellite, but there're some huge palms in the way I guess, I also heard (though this was from my cable co, Cox) that it goes out on occassion.

But I'm so pissed at my cable company. They periodically raise their rates and never say why, at least a couple times a year they send me a bill for NBA League pass that I never ordered and never had and it takes at least a couple months to clear it up, my internet has gone out the last 4 days in a row, they charged me for something they offer for free for 8 months straight and when I realized it, they wouldn't refund me...

The list goes on, but what can I do? I can't get satellite here and they're the only other company in town for cable and internet (except dial-up which I can't use)

So I take it in the ass every month.

Plus they have the lamest commercials ever, and they're set at like 10 decibals higher than every other commercial so I need the volume ready incase one of their lame commercials comes on.

and they are constantly making up fake awards, then giving these fake awards to themselves, then broadcasting lame commercials bragging about their lame awards.

I would love to cancel my cable right now if I could get satellite. I would even pay more and put up with occassional outages just to stick it to them.

Both are great but I have the Dish Network (Satellite) and I love it. There are channels on Sat that you'd never get with cable and that does not work in the reverse with cable.

In South africa on cable we only have 5 channels and sometimes the programs can be very boring. WIth DSTV there is always something that will interest a person as there is more channels.the only problem is its a bit expensive per month but worthit i guess.

Satellite is new tech. Cable is messy and old-school. Now I will never try to live like its the past! All I can say is that I like and use satellite and like it a lot better than cable!
