Ok so heres my deal.

For 120 a month I get DSL, a Land Line, and DirectTV. That comes with 200 Channels, HD channels, and movie channels.

Now my problem is, do you all think it is worth the extra 50 bucks? Becuase I can get access to ALOT of channels online, but the problem is, I want my HD sports, but thats about it... so I just want opinions. Do you think it is worth it to get the satellite, or just use the internet?????

Also, do you know of any HD streaming sites??? Cause I would love to be able to stream live HD sports online.

I guess it depends on the sport but in general terms, the internet is not up to snuff when it comes to live sporting events. You'll be charged for it no matter where you watch it. And it may end up costing you more.
