I used to do Direct Sales for Cablevision last year 2006, and one of the main reasons why their HD definition customers switched over was because of the prohibitvely expense of their HD - DVR boxes, plus their rental fees. Also, at least here in Westchester, when we get wind and rain, it wrecks havoc with reception and the satelitte dishes.
