Comments on: U-Verse Offers TV Alternative and More Money: Earn it, Invest it, Spend it Fri, 19 May 2017 17:24:17 +0000 hourly 1 By: M. Ward Mon, 28 Dec 2009 20:48:17 +0000 Just got U-Verse installed (replaced Dish DVR625 [two set standard def.], plus two regular SD receivers [purchased years ago]).
Dish wanted to CHARGE me to remove my old receivers (before upgrading to another DVR or to add HD).
There are a few things with the U-Verse DVR/receivers which are not as nice as Dish (no “preferences” list on Program Guide [allows me to drop all those home shopping channels I don’t want to see]). I’ve got the U300, and many of the premium movie channels appear in my Channel Guide (an annoyance to skip past them when I’m looking for something interesting to watch). Channel Guide displayed over main picture (obscuring the main picture) and showing highlighed channel in channel guide in PIP box is annoying (compared to Dish showing last viewed channel in PIP, allowing you to see/hear program while looking for new station). Overall, I’m pleased with the service.
