I recently switched over from DirecTV. I'm happy with FIOS TV and my other FIOS services, especially my internet, but there is a huge difference between DTV equipment and Verizon. DTV equipment flows and responds better to the remote versus the noticeably slow Verizon equipment. DTV DVR boxes are also a lot smarter. When recording a new series, Verizon STBs records old shows even when you select the the First-Run only option. Verizon needs to step their game up on equipment. DTV has the most appealing equipment in the industry hands down. Verizon STBs standout like a sore thumb in a very nice looking home.
