Springfield market is first in the nation where satellite has overtaken cable TV.

Were #78 in the market and first for satellite at 39.6% versus 39.2% for cable.Were probably going to be dog last to get our locals in HD as we only have NBC and PBS. ( http://www.news-leader.com/saturday/index_new.shtml/ )

E* came here first with locals and I would say they have 2/3 of the market. Just a guess.

I know as your neighbor to the south in Harrison that there isn't much choice.

Its COX in town or satellite everywhere else since COX isn't willing to extend their service even 6 miles South of town. When/if Cox ever gets its ducks in a row and offers digital cable, I might migrate, but until that time, I am with E*.

OT: I had to wait 2.5 years to get DSL through Alltel. Now they are offering 3MB per sec Ultra DSL.

I'd have to agree. I have a 40+ foot tower to get Springfield locals and then they are still not clear. That was the reason I moved from D* to E* in Nov of 2003.

D* hadn't planned on carrying locals and didn't until 'I think' about 6 months ago.
