I just posted my first impressions of Direct TV HD and I’m giving it my “NOTthisNEXT” tag. In other words, I can’t recommend it right now. I think people should wait, unless they don’t mind not getting their money’s worth.
It just doesn’t have the amount of programming it should for the prices they are charging for the hardware and subscriptions. If you love tech stuff and want to show off go for it, but if you’re looking to get value I’d say wait another six months when (I hear) there will be much more content available.
I wonder what HDBeat thinks?
