|They recently put a new RX on the roof dish that allows me to record 26 HD channels at a time, if I were so inclined. OTA for local channels, even with their new amplified antenna, is still better but the signal often craps out since I am a decent distance from the transmission towers so it is not reliable.|
I believe they only offer true 4K for movies you pay for... which I don't... I can wait.
They have a hybrid system where I often can get content via downloading to catch up on past shows. Some good shows still don't have a way to catch up on content. Since I have a new DVR since I last watched "Queen of the South" I missed most of the new season since I didn't have it programmed in to record and the new, lame version of "Entertainment Weekly" switched to a monthly format and I missed the reminder of the new season.
The hybrid system works well for pay cable since you can download the past shows via the internet and watch with the DVR with them organized nicely. I'm hoping they eventually let me download Amazon and HBO streaming subscription shows so I don't have to do so many remote changes to get my high end sound - I put in a request for that yesterday in fact!
Trouble with Fiber and any expensive system is it costs a lot to deliver it to areas with large lots... so they put it in the denser cities with suburbs and rural areas often way behind. We may get 5G very close to here BUT of course this is California and half the people think it will give them cancer... so they are fighting it.
