Question How do you get your broadcast HDTV?

Alright everyone, as an HD advocate I would like to query the community and find out what your carrier preference is on HDTV broadcasts?

This poll well begin with North America.

If some one from the European/South American community could message me with a list of HDTV satellite/cable carriers I'd appreciate it and I will begin a seperate thread & poll.

Also, if I missed any big North America HDTV providers, message me please.

Phil

DirecTV because we live just far enough outside of the city that cable hasn't reached us yet. Also because of the NFL Direct Ticket. Only way to see all of the Broncos games here.

Even with the DirecTV hookup and HD channels, most of the HD programming we watch every week (House, Heroes, Earl, etc) are on the major networks which come in OTA. We get 7 (NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, PBS, WB, UPN) networks with OTA digital signals and some of those have up to 3 individual signals with different programming on each. For example, PBS has channel 8-1, 8-2 and 8-3.

If you are going to start with North America, us in Canada have the choice of either Bell ExpressVu or Star Choice. I personally have a Bell HD PVR.
