Default Comcast vs Verizon

Looking into canceling my Comcast service for Verizon and was wondering if anyone has done this recently. I'm in Richmond, VA and, from what I can gather, having two HD-enabled sets with at least a Home Media DVR set up is going to be roughly the same price but with more channels on Verizon that I'll actually use versus the VOD stuff. I need ESPNU and ESPN News HD. Plus, Verizon has Boomerang, which will make my wife happy.

Hmmm, sounds like a tough call... On the one hand I know that comcast at least was recompressing their Mpeg2 stream an extra 33% making the PQ suck. On the other hand we have a poster on the SD forums claiming FiOS HDTV looks worse than upscaled DVD. Tough call.
