Direct TV vs AT&T Uverse

I've been a long time DTV customer and love the quality but DTV is kinda expensive. An AT&T rep just went door to door trying to sell their product. Claims he can save me from DTV and my current internet provider (Charter) roughly $80 a month. I'm trying to decide if it's worth it?

I've heard some bad things about Uverse and also heard people say they love it.

Any input is appreciated.

What's redzone? He quoted me 107 for 300 package, 52 movie channels, and their "highest speed" internet. Claimed that wasn't a promotional rate and it would never go higher yet I would be locked in for a year.

I quoted highest speed because I had AT&T's fastest internet before and switched to charter because it was slow as hell. Couldn't even watch a youtube vid.

we have it and like it. we have the medium tier (max i think) internet and it works great for our needs. the 52 movie channels will be a promotion, don't let them fool ya...our movie deal was only for 6 months and then it went back to the insane rate and we canceled those.

So how is the HD quality? A year or two ago they came around when Uverse first came to our area and I heard over and over that it wasn't anywhere near the quality of DTV.

My brother in-law has it and he likes it. I have Direct TV and just could not get used to watching stuff at his house. My father in-law has Verizon FIOS, but I really don't care for that as well. The on-demand system sucks for that one.

when I think of how much money I could save not having a cell phone bill, a direct tv bill and an intenet bill I could save a lot of money.

ATT Uverse is just as overpriced as any of the others, total rip off in my opinion. It is worth about 1/3 what they currently charge...

I decided to stick with what I have after hearing that Uverse internet sucks. I had At&t internet before which sucked. Switched to Charter which is my only other option btw. Much better. I thought Uverse was a different internet than the regular At&t, but was still scared to go with it either way.
