Any of my northeastern readers have any experience (or hear of others’ experiences) with them? I am apparently a customer of theirs now.

Also, for anyone looking for a TV, Woot is hawking the model I own. I think. The specs appear to be the same. They’re offering it for a $100 less than I paid for it eight months ago. It’s been a pretty good TV. Not nearly as nice as my parents’ Samsung, but a few hundred dollars less expensive. The non-HD stuff isn’t terrific, unfortunately. That and the lack of PnP are my only two complaints. But you can’t beat their pricing. With the other cheap brands, Philips and Sanyo, you can see why they’re so cheap. Less so with Vizio.

    We have cable internet service from Cablevision. No real issues, every so often it’ll slow down for a short periods but that seems to be more or less unavoidable.

    Excellent, you’ll be subsidizing Long Island’s economy. 🙂

    FWIW, I think you mat expect some broadcast TV outages. Cablevision tends to be a small player compared to say Comcast, so they’re more liable to hold out for lower costs and go without a channel in a dispute. Otherwise, I can’t say much as I’m a DirectTV subscriber, and I won’t consider Cablevision until they finally get BBC America.

    David, I should have been more clear. I’ll be an Internet customer and not a cable one.
