    I'm not into HBO or Showtime. I just want a quality service for HD, DVR, and multi tv set ups. What do you have and why do you like it (if you do)

    Yeah, I have been thinking about U-verse and would like to hear from any people that have it.

    I've had Uverse for all services since April of last year and love it. After some inital problems with internet speed that were resolved quickly it has been incident free. I saved $80 per month over Brighthouse plus got a $200 gift card to sign up. The whole house DVR with the larger hard drive is nice and the GUI (graphical user interface) is much better than Brighthouse.

    When I signed up last year I had the 30mb Lightning Internet Service with Brighthouse but the fastest internet speed in my area with Uverse was 18mb but I haven't noticed any difference at all. Believe they have increased their internet speeds but I don't see any reason to change.

    From a programming standpoint, it is pretty much the same as Brighthouse with a few differences. One thing is Uverse already has an agreement in place to broadcast the SEC network when it starts next year
