Ordered a Sony KDSR50XBR1 50" SXRD today. Now I have to upgrade my satellite service to HD. I know that Dish (my current provider) wants 299 upgrading my DVR to HD DVR and $99/mo for the Platinum Package that includes all of their HD channels, 180 SD channels and premium movie channels such as Showtime and HBO (including HBO HD). I was also thinking about switching to DirecTV or Comcast but I don't know about their offerings. Any information and opinions are welcome.
